How did you join Alo? In a few words could you describe your main tasks in your position? I applied to an open position after a recommendation from a colleague who is a consultant. I am a design engineer at the product integration department, which belongs to the R&D organization. My responsibility is to make the interface between the tractor and the front loader: from a mechanical, electrical and hydraulic point of view.
What type of background is needed for your job? Practical experience from industry and a positive and open attitude where you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty. My background is also helping me a lot to make a qualitative contribution to the company. I have three years experience in the forestry industry and a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering.
Why is Alo an attractive employer? I have chosen to work at Alo in order to be part of a global organisation where I can meet and talk to people from all over the world on a daily basis. This makes my job so interesting and challenging. I particularly like the mix of both office work and a hands-on job: first I am coordinating a worldwide project in the office and join conference calls with participants from Europe, USA and China – and in the next moment I find myself lying in a dirty overall under a tractor. There’s little risk of getting bored!
