What advice would you give to colleagues considering a move from an established rail employer to KONUX?
Bring the experience from the railroads and bring it to the development of KONUX products to work together to improve the infrastructure of the future.
If you are eager to move a lot quicker, work flexibly, and take fuller ownership of projects that advance railway – this is the place. But be prepared to work with more uncertainty in terms of processes and ways of doing things. We are doing many things that have not been done before and you’ll be part of figuring out how to bridge the two worlds – the start-up world and railway world, which can be challenging at times.
What else should they know?
That you join a very international team where the company language is English.
What do you love most about your job?
Working in the rail sector. It’s a “small” world where you often see each other again.
An example for that:
In the early 2000s, I organized a delivery to the Netherlands for a rail supplier. In the process, I dealt with various parties and successfully completed the project for the customer. After more than 15 years, during which I was not professionally active in the Netherlands, I met people again who were also involved in the project at that time or had also heard about it.
And what are you looking forward to?
I’m looking forward to helping the rail sector ease the challenges of increased capacity needs with helpful products.
