Rolling Stock Fire Safety Specialist

Job Description

What do we do at Siemens Mobility Engineering?

We have about 350 colleagues in the Czech Republic. Together we develop innovative products for the rolling stock. In addition, we work on global projects, from the definition of requirements, over SW/HW and mechanics development, to cross-sectional topics at the vehicle-wide level.

If sustainable transport and the related state-of-the-art solutions resonate with you, you're the one we're looking for! 🚅♻😉

We impact the lives of hundreds of thousands of passengers every day. You can travel on our fully automated metro in Vienna or use our high-speed trains on the direct line between London and Amsterdam. You can also encounter the fastest loco in the world, Taurus, on Czech rails.

By creating energy-efficient zero-emission transport systems, we contribute to fulfilling the Czech Republic's, European Union's and global commitments related to energy, climate, and the environment. The development projects in the Czech Republic also include battery- or hydrogen-driven vehicles.

What will be the benefits provided by your role?

  • Designing fire concepts and specifications, including the concepts of electrical fire signalling

  • Executing internal safety documents and preparing approval documentation

  • A university degree in a technical field, ideally with a focus on fire safety
  • Professional experience with engineering or similar activities related to fire safety
  • Experience with developing technical concepts and specifications
  • Knowledge of English allowing thoroughly professional work, fundamentals of German and Czech for daily communication
