    Job Description

    The main goal of the Project Quality Team is to ensure that the engineering organization develops our new automotive products according to the defined rules and guidelines. Even if we do not code or test the software ourselves, we are very proud of our contribution to the project success. We also believe a career in quality can be very interesting and rewarding.

    • You interact with the project SW development and SW testing teams to make sure everyone is working according to an agreed plan
    • You create and maintain the SW Q Assurance Strategy for the allocated projects
    • You make sure project documents are reviewed by the right people so that the teams know what they will code and test.
    • You collect and analyze specific software key performance indicators that reveal what could be improved
    • You verify that the SW project teams are respecting our Conti development rules. If there are deviations from the agreed strategy, you take action to close them and ensure they don't reoccur
    • You report the quality status to the involved parties: project team and their managers
    • You perform, prepare and participate to internal or customer audits.
    • You may also interact with our customers in order to explain the software quality status
    • You may perform training on various process topics, coach project teams or moderate workshops

    When you join, you will become part of a local quality group with more than 20 people. We will teach you the basics of Software Quality Management and share with you details about the multiple career paths that you can choose from (e.g auditor, project quality specialist or quality leader)

    A mentor will support you to gradually take over responsibility after an initial training phase which will familiarize you with our products, tools, processes and organization.
