Back to the roots: This is what I can call my background – at least regionally – because I grew up about 20 kilometers from my current job. In the meantime, I studied mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Dortmund, specializing in materials technology. On the one hand, I was able to support my theoretical knowledge and on the other hand I could earn my living by working as a student assistant and doing various internships, among others in Switzerland.
Afterwards I moved to Aachen, where, in addition to my work as a project manager and later as a group leader at the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology, I had the chance to do a doctorate at the machine tool laboratory (WZL) of Aachen Technical University (RWTH). Since during this time I was heavily involved in various machining production processes, the management of national and international projects, and not least in organizational and strategic issues, thyssenkrupp rothe erde was at the top of my list when it came to further career planning. My subsequent application process as a direct entrant confirmed the positive image which I had of thyssenkrupp: Prompt feedback on my application documents and an open interview in which I was treated as an equal.
Currently, I work as a production engineer in the Lippstadt plant on project production of slewing bearings.
One of the most important tasks in my job is certainly cross-departmental collaboration. The overriding objective is always to deliver a high-quality product on time to the customer while adhering to cost aspects. It makes no difference whether it is a matter of coordinating with upstream departments in the production process (e.g. engineering, construction), talking to employees on the shop floor or answering customer-specific technical questions.
An essential point I value about my work is the complexity of the tasks. In my day-to-day work, I deal with issues such as the implementation of new technologies in production, feasibility studies, specifications for machine procurement and production planning. In addition, there is of course the central building block of "day-to-day business" with the aim of ensuring a smooth production process.
… to jointly develop our products, our location and finally thyssenkrupp rothe erde.
thyssenkrupp rothe erde is an employer I can wholeheartedly recommend. And I've done that a few times. Essential points that motivate me to make this statement are the complexity, internationality and innovative ability of the Group. I also like the internal training and further education opportunities which are taught on and off-the-job.
