Job description

As a Purchasing Engineer you will become part of a successful team. An interesting multinational working environment is waiting for you with interfaces to other teams in Cegléd and other Infineon locations, as well as external suppliers.

In your new role you will:
  • Initiate measures for price reduction within the product development process and ensure standardization and process ability of materials
  • Identify and implement material cost reduction potential by utilization and further development of technical levers such as: Cost Performance Matrix, Value Engineering, or Design to Cost, to make a valuable contribution to Infineon and contribute to the improvement of the business results
  • Analyze global procurement markets and forward-looking planning in regards to supplier selection and development with focus on innovation potential, including supplier contract design in R&D projects
  • Pro-active support in the technical development of the supplier portfolio and used production materials
  • Ensure the continuous improvement through interdisciplinary collaboration across locations with areas like R&D, marketing, logistics and quality management


In addition to your outstanding technical expertise, you bring along an equally strong commercial understanding.
You are an intercultural savvy and you enjoy working in a cross-functional, global network of experts. Moreover you communicate easily and clearly and are used to carry out regular supplier visits independently.

You are best equipped for this task if you have:
  • University degree in engineering (electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering or materials science)
  • 3+ years of professional experience in purchasing or a technical department, ideally in the semiconductor/electrical industry or in the automotive/supplier industry
  • Knowledge in the application of quality techniques, e.g. APQP and standards like IATF 16949 and VDA 6.3
  • Fluency in Hungarian and English/German language skills
