More finesse at Rhomberg Bahntechnik

It was about 9 years ago that I started my career at Rhomberg Bahntechnik as a fitter for the electrical equipment of railway lines. After completing my apprenticeship in electrical engineering, I worked as an industrial electrician for a furniture company and as an electrician for tunnel boring machines for a large construction company. The work there was rather rugged and included temporary site installation and maintenance. I longed for projects that would again require more sensitivity and technical skills. At that time, Rhomberg Bahntechnik was looking for skilled workers for the Unterinntalbahn project. I was attracted to the field of work as an electrical engineer in railway construction, so I joined Rhomberg Bahntechnik.

I'm learning a lot

I took my first steps in the Unterinntal project and was able to learn a lot right from the start. For the operation of some devices and machines I first had to get a certification. Rhomberg Bahntechnik made it possible for me to obtain this, which will also be a great benefit to me in the future. My colleagues have comprehensive technical know-how in their respective fields, which they do not keep to themselves, but share with others. I greatly admire this way of handling knowledge in business. I also like the structures that a company of Rhomberg Bahntechnik's dimensions offers. The work equipment is state of the art and if additional equipment is required, it is available.

Family-friendly through flexibility

As an assembly supervisor I am by now no longer employed as a wage employee, but as a regular employee. I can now be found both in the office in Bregenz and on the various construction sites. I actually live in Carinthia and the journey to Bregenz can sometimes be strenuous. However, thanks to our flexitime arrangements and the possibility of working flexibly, even in the home office, I can often move my workplace to my home. This flexibility not only has advantages for me, but also for the business, as I am closer to some construction sites. With this model, I have found a family-friendly solution that suits me.

What makes you a “ideas-on-track-bringer“?

I receive ideas in the form of circuit diagrams and implementation plans and as an ideas-on-track-bringer I put these theoretical considerations into practice. I install switch cabinets for 50 Hz systems, check the monitoring technology, commission the systems and build other components of the electrical equipment on the track - I basically bring electricity to the track.
