Development Engineer Cell & Module

When I started as an intern in the E-Solutions & Service department, I was allowed to put my studies into practice. I was not only an intern, but a full member of the team. In that way, I soon had a large scope for decision. Creative ideas and own initiative are always welcomed and promoted at Webasto. After completing my studies in electrical engineering-, information technology, and technical computer science, I was able to start my career as a Development Engineer Cell & Module in the field of battery at Webasto. My colleagues are open, cooperative, and included me very promptly, in line with the spirit of ONE Webasto. In my current position, I deal with the battery cell in a battery system and support my colleagues professionally in battery development to create future-oriented and innovative systems. Another focal point is the intercultural communication with our suppliers in the battery area. I soon realized that Webasto appreciates its employees and thus creates a pleasant working environment and feeling of security. What I also particularly like is that I was quickly given a lot of responsibility and my ideas are heard.

From my first day as a working student in the HR marketing department, Webasto offered me a variety of tasks and exciting projects in which I was fully involved from the very beginning. After my master’s degree in business psychology, I entered as a recruiting specialist. Now I am responsible for various departments in recruiting. What I have always liked about Webasto is the great work environment, as well as the various development opportunities. Furthermore, due to the support of my team and the close exchange with the department, I receive a great insight into several HR topics.

Even before my direct entry in the Operations department, I was able to get to know various departments at Webasto. Already as a dual student and later on as a working student, I especially came to appreciate the close environment, the exciting projects as well as the intercultural cooperation. In my current role, I am responsible for the implementation of the Webasto production system together with my colleagues all around the world. In that way, together we contribute to the continuous improvement of the entire value chain from the supplier to the customer. These optimizations enable us to guarantee product security, quality, availability and cost efficiency at all our production sites worldwide.

Our Partnerships with Universities Offer Practical Benefits

Webasto assumes responsibility with foresight – and helps you get ahead in your degree program. For example, we actively partner with universities to promote innovation and talent. These partnerships take on different forms, ranging from excursions and mentoring to doctorates, scholarships, and much more. For example, Webasto has actively supported the “TUfast Racingteam” Formula SAE student design team from TU Munich since 2016. This team competes against student teams from all over the world with its self-designed race cars. In the process, they gain valuable practical experience right from the beginning.

Mobile Work

With mobile work, employees are given the opportunity to perform a certain part of their working hours outside the company, and thus on the move.
