System Engineer – Ergonomics & Human Factors

Job Description

Together with their colleagues abroad, Siemens Mobility's Engineering sites in the Czech Republic are developing modern rolling stock. We address both the overall arrangement, design of particular systems, and summary features. We create innovative products for urban transport (tramways, metro) and rail transport vehicles (regional and high-speed transport). We are a trend-setter, shifting forward the equipment levels. By creating energy-efficient zero-emission transport systems, we contribute to the fulfilment of the Czech Republic's, European Union's and global commitments related to energy, climate, and the environment.

We do not see the application of new equipment as a goal but as a tool to reach the ultimate utility value of vehicles. It sure includes convenience and comfort, both for the passengers and service personnel. That is why we see ergonomics, human physiology and the working environment as vital cross-sectional disciplines that must be analysed and ensured competently.

  • Daily use of a foreign language and business trips abroad 
  • A friendly team of rolling stock enthusiasts who are also keen on leisure-time activities
