Global opportunities

After I completed my business studies in Florida, I returned to Brazil, where a local recruitment agency suggested I get in touch with Konecranes. I immediately liked how the company was present in so many places worldwide. I knew that I would start in Brazil, but that in the future I would also have an opportunity to work elsewhere in Konecranes.

It is great to be part of a company involved in so many business segments globally. Our equipment and services keeps things moving – whether it’s raw materials or finished products. By making sure we operate in the most efficient way, we help our customers improve profitability and maintain continuous growth.

Colleagues that challenge

I enjoy working with intelligent colleagues who challenge me daily. Not only do they support me, they also encourage me to go that extra mile when it’s necessary. I also like how we learn something new on the job every day. I am confident that we’re helping to make Konecranes the best company in its sector. It’s all about finding new ways to be more effective and profitable – financial administration can play an important role in achieving this goal.

In it for the long haul

I started off in Konecranes' offices in Brazil, where I was working with both service and equipment as well as back-office operations. Now I have an opportunity to develop professionally in Konecranes USA. When a company treats its employees fairly and shows this in day-to-day operations, you want to continue working in that company. I plan on developing my career at Konecranes in the years to come and if possible retiring from the company one day.
