Summer Intern: Jacob Swenson

Greetings from Romania!

My name is Jacob Swenson and I am a student at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. I am originally from northern Sweden but have lived in Gothenburg since 2008. I completed my bachelors in software engineering this spring and come fall I will start studying for my masters in computer science at Universiteit Utrecht in The Netherlands.

During the first five weeks of my internship I have worked with the automated testing framework, Ultima Test Case (UTC), adding new functionality to the user interface. I have also created a standalone application for installing the new version of Visma Control, and integrated that into UTC. In the weeks that are left I will keep working with UTC, setting up a testing environment and creating test scenarios.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Visma so far. It has been especially interesting to see how a multi-national company interacts over borders and time zones. If I am given the opportunity I would probably enjoy working full-time for Visma after my graduation.

I’m worked as a Management Trainee in Visma. I have a bachelor’s degree in International Marketing from Oslo School of Management, and a Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) from California Lutheran University.
