Work for a company who makes the future greener

I love being at Campeon – a working day here is really great and reflects the corporate culture.

Sophie Student employee at Global Talent Marketing in Munich

When did you join Infineon and what are your tasks?

I joined Infineon in January 2022 as a working student in the Global Talent Marketing Team. My tasks include supporting on career website topics and take over tasks in the area of print material, merchandise and innovation topics.

What exactly does that entail? How have you been able to make a difference?

Since we want to give our potential candidates the best possible insight into the Infineon world, we also show on our career website where you can work around the world. We built a template with which we want to simplify the updating of our location pages as it is important to always keep them up-to-date. For this reason, I am in exchange with Infineon sites around the globe to breathe new life into the pages.

Why Infineon?

My working student position is a perfect balance between my master’s in business psychology. I can also go to the Campeon by bike, which is a good added value for me. I love being at Campeon – a working day here is really great and reflects the corporate culture. I also identify well with Infineon's values and think it's great to work for a company who makes the future greener.

I’m never bored, because every day brings new tasks with it.

Mathias Hannes Student employee in Test Development & Execution for electrical drive systems

Why is the job of a student employee a good match for you?

Alongside my studies in electrical engineering and informatics, I’m working as a student employee in Test Development. For me, the mix between theory and practice is just right – I spend two days a week here at the Infineon Campeon, and the rest of the week is reserved for classes and studying. It’s an ideal mix.

What do you do at Infineon? What are you working on right now?

The Integrated Power Modules department works to improve the energy efficiency of electrical motors. For example, those built into washing machines and refrigerators, or those used in industrial production technology, for example for automated manufacturing.

Currently I’m working on technical marketing. The job lets me develop my technical expertise and my marketing know-how at the same time. It’s never boring, because each day I have new tasks to take care of. It therefore helps to be both open and focused.

Why is Infineon a good choice for you?

A big advantage at Infineon are the opportunities that go along with an international company. Thanks to the flat hierarchies, you can exchange knowledge with experts from all over the world and get in touch with just about anyone for advice.

I also like the Infineon Campeon site here in Munich. In the summer, we play soccer or tennis during the lunch break or after work. There’s something to be said for that. It’s also easy to get to Campeon via public transport, so arriving to work is a piece of cake.
