System engineer – rolling stock controller - Prague/Pilsen

Job Description

Our mission at Siemens Mobility 
Together with our colleagues abroad, we are developing state-of-the-art rolling stock. We address both the overall arrangement and design of particular subsystems.

What is the outcome of our work?
Our Train Control Group breathes life into the vehicles through the engineering of SW and HW control features. We develop individual vehicle functions thoroughly to the general satisfaction of our customers. We want our rolling stock to provide a high level of safety and reliability. We want to know about every aspect of operation so the vehicles can perform excellently as a whole. We seek solutions to reduce energy intensity as much as possible by combing various approaches to onboard energy management.
