About the programme

SEB is a large international company with more than 15 000 professionals, 2500 of whom are in tech, and our Tech Programme is designed to give you an introduction to work across the organisation while kickstarting your career as a tech specialist.
All participants in the programme are offered a specific job role, including roughly 20 positions across Sweden and a few international sites. The programme starts in September every year and runs for 6 months. After the programme you continue working full-time in your role.

There are two pillars of the Tech Programme, on which you will spend a similar amount of time:

On the job role

You are hired into a specific role from the beginning where you will develop skills to become a future specialist.

Training and collaboration

You will participate in learning activities that include trainings in self-leadership, communication, collaboration and much more. Cross-collaboration, taking responsibility, and positively influencing others are key competences to develop during the programme.
During the programme, you will have many opportunities to collaborate with fellow techs, Trainee Programme participants, and other colleagues, as well as solve real business challenges, and self-drive other programme activities to customize your learning experience. You will also learn and influence our way of working, as well as our culture and values.
Joining the Tech programme is a unique learning opportunity to build your network and work on exciting and impactful tech projects. We hope you will apply!
