Get to know Tobias Johansson
As a recent graduate with a Master’s degree in industrial engineering, I was looking for a consulting firm that would provide hands-on experience in a variety of industries. That’s when I joined Ascend in August 2022 through the Accelerate program.
At Ascend, I was drawn to the collaborative culture, where everyone’s opinion is valued, and ideas are encouraged to flourish. This approach is not just about empowering individuals; it also helps to improve project delivery by creating sustainable solutions that add value to our clients’ businesses. The flat hierarchy at Ascend provides equal opportunities for everyone to learn from each other. As an Accelerate, I have had the chance to work on projects with both senior and junior consultants, which has been an incredible learning experience.
Before joining Ascend, I worked part-time at Nasdaq Fixed Income, where I developed a platform to increase transparency and reliability. This experience helped me develop an interest in data management and analysis. In my current project at Ascend, I am assisting a client in improving data quality and consolidating “Corporate Knowledge” onto a common platform to manage data related to the active portfolio of investments.
I am excited to be part of Knowit’s ecosystem, as it provides me with the opportunity to collaborate with experts from diverse industries and domains. The opportunity to learn from their experiences and perspectives is invaluable and will allow me to broaden my knowledge and skills. Being part of Knowit’s ecosystem will also provide me with the chance to work on larger and more complex projects, which is both challenging and exciting.
