Infineon treats its employees like human beings, not like working machines. Managers are generally concerned about their employees’ wellbeing.

Identify trends in the electrification of commercial vehicles, understand technical vehicle requirements, and translate them into power electronics requirements.

Definition of a strategy for developing new power modules dedicated to electric powertrains for trucks. Engaging with new customers in the electrification of transportation.

Every day, I engage with different people worldwide and learn about regional CO2 reduction targets. 

Furthermore the possibility to take part in an emerging market.

Predict how exactly commercial vehicle manufactures will implement electrification so that we have products that fit to perfection.

Getting to know different cultures through people, foods, landscapes, and languages.

I work with the product at many levels during a project. This requires me to understand the system both at the architectural level and at the lowest implementation level. This wide range is what makes this job so exciting.

At Infineon there is always an expert who can help you move forward. We have so much knowledge in-house that is available for me to use when solving a problem. And this is extra valuable, since my colleagues around the world are always happy to share their knowledge and help out.

Based on the product requirements from our marketing team, I create specifications for our audio ICs and from this design the system architecture that can fulfil these needs. Together with the IC designers, I take the design from system level to transistor level.

The end result is the audio amplifier ICs that go into our end-customer products, e.g. battery-driven active speakers or soundbars. 

As I work on our projects from requirements through system architecture to transistor-level implementation, I get involved in practically all phases of the project.

Being able to actually understand our audio ICs at both the system level and transistor level, and even at the application level, requires a highly multidisciplinary skill set that I need to continuously keep improving.

I would tell myself to slow down and not to rush my career. Being skilled requires time and “mileage”. So enjoy the ride and learn as much as you can along the way ‒ the right opportunities will eventually come along.

Our radar chips are used all over the world, so I can contribute to making cars safer and to enabling autonomous driving.

Infineon is a big, global company. Also here in Linz, we have colleagues from all over the world. So when I meet new people or visit another site, it is easy to connect and engage.

In my job as Concept Engineer, I build an abstract model of the chips we design. I need a high-level understanding of the system and of how software and hardware work together.

Our team develops radar sensors that are used in automotive applications. My task is to create a simplified model of the radar chips we design, which consists of hardware and software.

The model mainly fulfills two purposes: Firstly, as the initial check of the whole system, it can be used to validate the concept of the chip. As a result, we can locate any problems in early development phases. Secondly, the software running on the chip can be tested before the real hardware is available.

My job is to understand the functionality of individual components of the system and how they interact with one another. I have to find out what details are relevant for the model and how to implement them. 

We develop automotive radar sensors that are used in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) like adaptive cruise control or collision avoidance. Our chips make cars safer and enable autonomous driving.

There are always new challenges in our everyday work. Sometimes it’s difficult and time-consuming to find a solution. For me, though, I think it’s really exciting and satisfying to move towards a solution and see progress. As the saying goes: “the journey is the reward.”

When we finish a project and see that our chip works in real life, it connects the whole team.

We put in a lot of effort, and at the end of the day it is worth it. It’s a great feeling to know that we make life safer for people all over the world.

Creating an abstract model might sound simple enough, but it can be quite difficult to break down a system into its essential features. If I recreate a functionality exactly as it is in real life, it would take much too much time to come up with a simulation model. On the other hand, if the model is too abstract, we could miss important aspects.

I have to sort out what details to include in the model and what to leave out. To be able to decide that, I align with the rest of my modelling team and colleagues from concept engineering, software development, and product design.

Smart. There is a saying that lazy engineers are the best. This is because they will avoid doing unnecessary work – instead they focus on finding an easy and maintainable solution. In the end, it costs some thinking time, but will speed up the process and prevent potential future problems.

My role gives me opportunities to work with new problems every day, adapt to new situations, and puts me in the driving seat to steer Infineon towards a profitable future.

StrategicThinker Foodie Motivator Entrepreneur TrendSetter

Infineon is a people-oriented company that cares about employees, provides opportunities to those that are hard-working and career-oriented, and is invested in their success.

My job as Director Design Enabling Services is intellectually stimulating and fulfilling. My main task is to develop methodologies for designers to make them efficient and meet time-to-market demands. I am leading four methodology teams – Applied Machine Learning, Design Automation, System Modelling, and Ecosystem and Digitalized System Development – providing them with strategic direction and keeping them motivated to achieve their goals.

The results of my work are flows and methodologies which can help designers be more efficient and successful in their day-to-day work. This gives me the satisfaction of knowing that my job enables faster time-to-market for Infineon.

Leading, motivating, and directing my teams towards success. It gives me immense pleasure to drive technical topics and workflows for the success of Infineon.

The biggest challenge is to continuously look at the design flows/methodologies and further improve them to make designers more efficient. It is very different from regular implementation work. Coming up with new ways of increasing efficiency in existing methods is more directed towards innovation. In addition to the innovative element, my work also involves engaging with and motivating designers from all business units to use these methodologies as a way to contribute to Infineon’s success. 

I am most proud of the fact that I joined Infineon in 2010 as an individual contributor and within just 9 years, I rose to Director of the Design Enabling Services group, leading four teams. This is thanks to the many opportunities that I get at Infineon to expand my knowledge and hone my skills.
