Tell us about your background and role at Optomed
My name is Heidi Sairanen and I live in Siuro with my husband, 3 kids, and 3 dogs. I am from Jyväskylä and worked for 15 years in the mining industry at Metso in global projects and before joining Optomed I worked for Istekki leading projects for the PSHP here in Pirkanmaa. I joined Optomed a year ago and I am located in Tampere, leading national and global projects as a Project Manager.
What do you like best at your job?
Every day is totally different, depending on the project and the customers I am working with. As a Project Manager, things are constantly changing and I am learning new things and skills all the time, which is great. On top of that, I have the best team in the world here in Tampere and the support and love from my team have been amazing since the day I started. I have worked in quite a few teams, but my team felt at home since the beginning.
What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
I was sent on a one-year work command when I was 23 to Montreal, Canada but little did I know that I ended up locating to Phoenix, Arizona in the USA and was relocated back to Finland, Tampere 8 years later. Before that, I had already lived in England, USA, and Netherlands so I consider myself a pretty global world traveler. Those years around the world made me who I am today and also made me appreciate what I have and always remember to live in a moment.Back to Employee Stories
