Your Future Role

Ernst-Reuter-Platz 6, in the heart of Berlin, is home to Alstom's DACH regional headquarters.

As Project Engineering Manager Vehicle Integration, you will define and put in place optimized ways of working for the required rolling stock changes.

Your internal interfaces include the Alstom signaling competence centers in Belgium, France and Italy.
