  • Verification and control of compliance with regulations and customer requirements of railway traffic control device designs
  • Conducting necessary internal arrangements, with clients and external institutions;
  • Updating technical documentation of devices and systems
  • Cooperation with external designers.

  • Railway Signal Engineer License (IRSE) would be preferred
