Q.What is your role with us?
My current role is Global Product Development Director, which means that I lead the product engineering activities on our three development sites in Jamestown, Linköping and Mjällby. I have recently decided to move back to France from Sweden, and take my job with me, as it is a global role.
Q.Tell us a little about your background
I graduated as a mechanical engineer and started my career as a product engineer in aeronautics in France. In 2007, I joined the company in a role within advanced engineering in Sweden, Mjällby. Since then, I have held different positions in the group, mainly in engineering but also in sales.
Q.Why did you decide to join us?
I really wanted to gain work experience abroad. I believe meeting other cultures and living in a new environment is very enriching. Moreover, TitanX is reputed for its structured processes, and it is a good company to work for as a young engineer.
Q.What is most attractive with TitanX to you?
What I appreciate the most at TitanX is the flexibility. We are very agile, decisions are taken in a timely manner and everyone can take part of the decision-making. There are no airtight barriers between departments or sites, we work as a team and support each other even if it means going beyond your own job description. In addition, the work environment is quite accommodating.
Q.Where do you see yourself add most value?
I have been in the company for some years now and gained experience in the engineering field, but having the possibility to work in different departments also gave me the opportunity to develop new skills. I think I now have a good understanding of our business, having experienced it from different perspectives.
Q.What qualities would you look for in a new colleague eager to join?
I definitely appreciate openness: someone open-minded, who is willing to share past experience and to learn our way of work, without pre-conceptions. As we work as a team, we need to be able to trust each other. Therefore, trustworthiness is important and openness is key factor in that.
Q.And what tip would you give to someone who wants to grow with us?
