Employee of ESE GmbH


Project manager

"We actually live the open door principle here. Whether it's to a colleague next door or the CEO: If you have somethin to talk about, you always get help."

Mandy started as a software developer at ESE and is now a project manager for software and verification projects. But she is also a "returnee". What does that mean? That is what she tells us here!

" Can you please tell me something about you and your education and why you are doing what you are doing now?"

I did a dual course of studies in Braunschweig, studied electrical engineering and at the same time completed an apprenticeship as an IT specialist. At the end of the master's degree, it was up to me to decide where I wanted to go. The recruiting team at ESE wrote to me at exactly the right moment, which led me to choose ESE and the railway technology area. At first I started in the project at the customer's site. After a certain time and a lot of consideration I joined the client's team directly.

After one year I was contacted by the former responsible manager at ESE to find out if I was still happy. Actually I wasn't at that moment because things didn't go as I had imagined. At ESE I was then offered exactly what I wanted to do. So I decided to come back to the ESE.

"And what are you currently doing at ESE?"

At the moment I am doing project management for software and verification projects in the railway sector. I am the contact person between the customer and the team and work on how to meet the customer's requirements with our capabilities and in a way that all sides are satisfied. The tasks are very multifaceted - it's not just one task that you do for 8 hours, but many different activities. This is actually what I enjoy most.

"What do you generally like about ESE? What would you tell outsiders about ESE?"

Well - it sounds clichéd - but the family relationship that exists internally at the moment. No matter what the problem is, we can always talk to anyone. The principle of the open door is actually lived here - either to a colleague next door or to the managing director. Everyone is given a lot of trust to try out new things. On the other hand, however, it is also expected that each one makes an effort, "kneels in" and also seeks help if problems arise. The employees are therefore encouraged and challenged. If things don't go so well, we''ll collectively see how the project gets back on track.

"What has been your personal highlight at ESE so far?"

The many friendships I've made here. But my real highlight is that I can now do project management here. So both privately and job-related I could develop myself here.
