When we optimize our service products, for example, we use sensors to monitor the state of the gear units under operating conditions and make the results available to the service engineer (m/f/x) online. From your workplace you can see when and what optimizations have been made to the system.
When you have completed the program you will be involved in the development of new product series, work with individual products as product management specialist (m/f/x) or help us to innovate as part of the research & development team.
