Supplier Quality Engineer - Component Introduction - TSR
Our story began fifteen years ago with three engineers who were at the beginning of their journey. In time, our team and our experience have grown and now we are ready to face new challenges and to create more innovative products for our clients. We develop different products for both passenger and commercial cars, but our focus is for actuators (and sensors) development. Now we extend our roles and we are looking for new colleagues, seniors but also juniors. We could say that we are serious, but also funny, responsible, creative and you can find that out by coming to meet us!
