How did you come to know of WITRON and why did you decide to join us?

I learned about WITRON from an acquaintance. First, I worked for three months and got familiar with the daily routine – when Markus Bauer, the head of electrical production, offered me the opportunity to join WITRON, I was immediately on board!

Why did I decide to join WITRON? The company culture is simply unique. Everyone is there for everyone else and we support each other. Every customer has individual priorities – this means many new challenges, but also a lot of variety. Thus, I can continuously develop further, and my colleagues also support me very much in this.

What makes WITRON special for you? What do you value the most? Did opportunities arise that would not have been possible elsewhere?

Above all, I value the company culture – our personal culture, the family atmosphere, the mutual trust. I have a lot of freedom in terms of working hours and working independently on site. There is a great deal of trust.

WITRON has opened up great opportunities for me just based on my career path. I started as a journeyman in electrical production and was able to develop further in the areas of customer service and maintenance as well as customer support.

Today, I specialize in the ramp-up area and analyze problems in our warehouses, WITRON systems, and logistics centers – and there are always new challenges and tasks waiting for me. This is one of the most important points that makes WITRON so special for me. I am always supported – by all our colleagues and supervisors.

I consider myself lucky to have obtained this opportunity and would do it again. By the way: We are looking for personnel to support the ramp-up management.

What is ramp-up management actually and what does a typical working day look like for you?

In the ramp-up management team, we act as an interface between the customer, WIOSS and the project team. We analyze, identify problems, and activate the respective people.

We organize and optimize work processes, for example the material flow and detect bugs. Operationally, we also support in the production. We act as a supervisor and contact person for the customer, advising during the ramp-up on how to properly deploy personnel, quickly identifying weaknesses thanks to our experience, and communicating difficulties to the project team and vice versa.

How would you describe your job in three keywords?

  • I love the challenge – again and again
  • communication-intensive
  • goal-oriented (we want the customer to be satisfied and we want to complete our projects as quickly, well and properly as possible)
