Then develop and discuss possible solutions at hand and present to customer together with the Business Developer or Account Manager and the Project Manager. During the project you are a key contributor setting requirements and implementing new advanced system architectures, high-level mechatronics design and execution of best-in-class solutions. The goal of this trio is to come up with a consistent system design that meets the functional specifications of our customers within the boundaries of overall cost and timing. The System Architect is the end-responsible for the technological side of the projects.

Because of our broad range of manufacturing sites, we design, create prototype, go to 0-series and the following serial production. As System Architect, you are connected to your projects until they hit the serial production stage. The involvement in these stages of the project is important to keep track of manufacturability and learn for future reference.

Besides the technical tasks, you also represent the organization at conferences, fairs and presentations. You stay up to date on the newest developments in your area of expertise. You will be the key contributor to the development of the organizations' technology roadmap and competence development.
