In a recent announcement, Cinnober Financial Technology was named as one of the top companies on the list of Sweden’s 100 most attractive career companies for 2014. The list is published annually by Sweden’s leading business newspaper, Dagens Industri, in its ‘Your career’ section, in cooperation with Jobtip.
More specifically, the list ranks the 100 most exciting companies in Sweden in which to pursue a career. These 100 companies, chosen from 300 nominated and evaluated, were selected as the country’s best employers for young professionals because of their interest in their employer branding, for having genuine employee commitment and unique career opportunities.
“As a knowledge-intensive company, our employees are our most important asset. We are therefore grateful for this award and acknowledgement,” says Cinnober’s Head of Human Resource, Christina Jacobsson. “When it comes to technology students and young professionals, we are continually working to ‘find, grow and keep them’ as we, as a growing company, have a need for new talents and obtaining maximum value from the talents we have onboard. We think our combination of advanced technology, finance and an international customer base provides an innovative environment with a wide variety of opportunities.”
The reason cited for selecting Cinnober:
“Cinnober can call itself a Career Company 2014 as a result of its palpable commitment to the industry, internal mobility and tasks that offer employees unique challenges. With a strong commitment to the financial IT industry, Cinnober works actively at becoming more accessible and at strengthening the level of education among its future staff. The company also offers its employees exciting challenges as they work with world-leading solutions in a complex environment. This, in combination with a flexible organization that promotes internal movement and specializes within certain specific areas, makes Cinnober one of Sweden’s most exciting employers of 2014.”
One example of Cinnober’s offensive investment initiatives to reel in young technology-talented people is its trainee program within financial IT, which began in 2013. Early in the fall, the first cohort consisting of three trainees began the one-year program at the company’s Umeå office. Initial interest in the program has been very great and in February another group of trainees will begin. Cinnober also began taking steps in 2013 towards building a financial IT cluster in Umeå.
Cinnober is a world-leading supplier of financial technology to marketplaces and clearing houses. Clients include large global actors with extreme demands on reliability and performance, such as BM&FBOVESPA, Deutsche Börse, Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange, London Metal Exchange, LME Clear, MarkitSERV and Stock Exchange of Thailand.
