Working at The Switch

Tuomo Liimatainen

Engineering Manager

What I love about motorcycling is that you get closer to nature than by just sitting in a car. You can smell all the scents around you. When I’m not speeding up, I like to slow down by spending time with my twin daughters, exercising and using my vocal chords singing in a choir.

Ever since I was a child, I’ve been interested in how different machines work – for example, I disassembled and tried to reassemble motorcycles. This is how I ended up studying mechanical engineering and started my career in that field.

I ended up at Yaskawa Environmental Energy after working on a project with the company through my previous job. I was instantly fascinated by the industry Yaskawa Environmental Energy operates in – environmentally friendly technology. What I love about working here is that we are constantly looking for new ways to improve the technology and become eco-friendlier. We don’t get stuck in the past but constantly move forward. Both at work and at home, I like to be in constant movement.
