Systems Engineer/Fire Safety Specialist

Job Description

At Siemens Mobility Engineering in the Czech Republic, we develop state-of-the-art rolling stock in collaboration with our colleagues from abroad. We focus both on the overall layout as well as on designing particular systems and cross-sectional characteristics. We develop innovative products for urban and rail transport. We are pushing the limits of technology further and are a trend-setter. 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.
