Lead Engineer in Electronics Development
Speed in all fields.
A sedate tempo is not really his preferred gear: he likes to get to it quickly. And this goes both when playing the drums at home in his basement and when working as lead engineer in his team in the electronics development department at Bertrandt. Daniel Schoch and his colleagues work directly at a large client’s on steering device safeguards for one of the top trends in the automotive sector: autonomous driving. And in this field particularly, the hefty competition requires a rapid rate of development.
“The requirements are as varied as they are challenging,” Daniel Schoch declares. “And without my super team, it would scarcely be possible to help shaping part of the future.” As a band leader, he is in charge of twelve people, all of them excellent soloists and also team players. “We are extremely agile, dynamic and flexible. It sounds like a cliché, but it’s true,” the young engineer confirms.
The team itself has grown rapidly in recent times. And as so often at Bertrandt, many young graduates have also been brought in, who can develop quickly and realise their own visions. “At Bertrandt, even graduates are given a chance to work in places where other firms would require five to ten years’ experience. That is of course a huge opportunity for everyone.” Especially in such a forward-looking field as autonomous driving. “Here, we often tread new ground and work on many exciting things that are top secret today and will ensure more safety, traffic flow and comfort on the streets tomorrow.”
The variety of topics and interesting content were important reasons why, in 2014, Daniel Schoch decided to come and work at Bertrandt. After studying electrical technologies, he was able to get started immediately at Bertrandt developing vehicle systems and safeguards, becoming lead engineer already in 2017. This is the typical rapid speed for this father and hobby model-builder, who simply finds fast rock at 160 bpm more exciting than the 70 of chillout music.
