When there are problems, telematics engineers may be called out to repair damage on site: they deal with network incidents, faulty loud-speaker equipment or incidents affecting radio networks and ticket office counters. Your day’s work includes fixing broken displays on platforms and faulty fibre optic network connections. Repairing equipment requires an analytic approach and thorough knowledge of modern technology. This makes continuous training important.
Fascination with technology.
Every day you deal with different technologies and techniques. Your IT skills are essential as a telematics engineer. Your daily work is varied, covering analogue radio systems, data technology and network systems. Different cable systems ranging from copper and glass fibre to mobile technology systems add yet more variety to your remit.
Managing the systems can be very demanding and requires a high level of skill. You can rely on your team to support you. You also have the pleasure of working with other teams across different regions. You work closely with your colleagues. You make use of your excellent written and oral communication skills. Your analytical thinking makes you an asset to the team and helps get Switzerland moving.
Your qualifications and your commitment are key to our success. We therefore train our employees in line with their personal needs and ambitions. As a trained telematics engineer holding the federal professional diploma, you receive training on different subjects and platforms such as GSM, network technologies and transmission systems. You can also follow further training in job planning or expand your knowledge of one of the numerous platforms or data networks.
As an employer, we are flexible when it comes to achieving harmony between your career and private life: not only do employees have the opportunity to work part-time in all of our positions, but they can also take unpaid leave.
Telematics engineers work from Monday to Friday. You work during the day as far as possible. The installation of equipment or switching procedures are only carried out at night when necessary. On-call duty is covered by one person per team, even at weekends.
As a telematics engineer, the results of your efforts are immediately evident and you can see how your ideas blossom and challenges are resolved.
We have a fair and progressive remuneration system. We reward individual performance, take the nature of the job market into account and create transparency. We have also been awarded the We Pay Fair label.
