You will be a part of Control Technologies, Automation Products & System's Sales Department. The business unit is part of ABB's division Process Automation and delivers automation solutions to end customers within the following market segments, Life Science, Food & Beverage, Chemical, Oil & Gas and Data Center. Our department is located in Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg.

Gothenburg is the center of excellence for ABB's deliveries of world leading automation systems towards the chemical, oil & gas industry in Sweden. Industry management, sales and project management for the Swedish market is organized from ABB's office in Gothenburg.

You will be a part of this unit with responsibility for a thorough market analysis which spans over all hydrocarbon segments, upstream, midstream and downstream.

The analysis you will undertake will have to use information gathering methods such as, but not limited to, phone interviews, online surveys and open data search. The information gathered is to be summarized and presented in an intuitive manner, readily available for use as input to our department's sales strategy within the next 5 year period.

Furthermore, the insight gained is to be used to match ABB's products and services towards the market in Sweden. Lastly, the analysis needs to advice on how to penetrate and obtain a bigger market share.

In order to achieve the best possible outcome of the market analysis we prefer to have an open approach and align the end result format with your profile, interests and background.

We are looking for highly motivated individuals currently pursuing a master's degree. Preferably with a strong interest in business development and technology in general. Knowledge of power and automation systems in general is at advantage (but not required).
