Can you really reach out to the whole world, creating a better everyday life for the many people?

In Älmhult, Sweden you can. Älmhult is home to IKEA of Sweden. Here the IKEA range is developed and made available to stores and customers all over the world. We are here to offer a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at lowest cost possible. That is our promise, and we do this every day with great passion and energy!
The Range is our identity and the product information is an essential part of the IKEA Concept. New technology is changing behaviour and the demands for new ways to interact and share real-time insights are essential for continuous growth.

It means exploring and designing how data – about and around our products – is created and captured, how it is distributed and made available.
