Your future role

More than 35,000 locomotives have already travelled the world from Kassel.

We’ll look for you to:

  • Organize content in a modern Content Management System to realize a maximum reuse of information
  • Independent implementation of customer requirements, including the requirements of the contracts
  • Analyse and implement feedback from assessors and authorities out of the locomotive authorization process (Safety-relevant application conditions (SRACS))
  • Check maintenance records for the vehicle and for the systems for completeness and formal correctness
  • Autonomous creation of mounting/demounting instructions according to drawings and research on the vehicles
