Meet Elin Ovéus
Head of Networks
In an era where our lives are increasingly intertwined with our smartphones, the demand for a reliable digital infrastructure has never been greater. Whether we are on the train, at home, or out in the woods, we expect uninterrupted access to network services. This is where Tele2 and Elin Ovéus plays a crucial role.
“Reliability is key. The ability to call, message, or use other services on a mobile phone is something we all take for granted. Our customers should feel confident that our networks are operational day and night, all year round,” says Elin Ovéus.
Rewinding to the early days of Tele2 reveals the company's evolution into a robust and reliable technological enabler, with a touch of disruptor DNA.
“Tele2 was among the first to challenge the old state monopoly. This spirit of challenging is embedded in our culture. Our history, combined with advanced technological solutions, makes Tele2 an exciting employer. We aim to challenge, influence, and improve society by offering the best and most stable network. The better our technology is, the more opportunities other players have to develop new products and services – it's incredibly inspiring,” Elin explains.
Elin Ovéus joined Tele2 after graduating nearly a decade ago. She participated in the company's trainee program, which provided a valuable start to her career.
“It was an exciting time. I joined right out of school and had the opportunity to spend a year alongside the executive team, gaining a deep understanding of the company. Since then, I've explored various roles that have fostered my personal development and career growth. That's a key reason I've stayed so long,” she shares.
When asked about employee development at Tele2, Elin confirms its importance.
“Absolutely. Development is practically unavoidable at Tele2. Partly thanks to the fact that technology never stands still - we must develop. Partly by encouraging you to develop in your specialist area or to try out new roles. Personal development is crucial, and Tele2 encourages employees to dive into the deep end if they choose to. This philosophy encapsulates the essence of the company for me.”
Elin Ovéus, Head of Networks at Tele2, ensures reliable telecommunications, as essential to our daily lives as running water.
