Porsche Engineering Working World
Porsche Engineering is a subsidiary of the automobile manufacturer Porsche and is embedded in the Volkswagen Group. The company combines the advantages of Group membership with the flexibility and agility of a smaller enterprise.
The friendly atmosphere and flat hierarchies mean simple communication and reporting structures, and create a highly personal working environment. Being a part of the Group opens up outstanding opportunities for career advancement and development in a variety of directions and positions.
Our employees regard themselves as “tinkerers”: They like to take on new challenges and are accustomed to thinking laterally – and the project landscape at Porsche Engineering extends far beyond the automotive industry. So it just might happen that one group is working on the motor and control technology for a hospital bed while another is working on optimizing crane cabins.
Boredom? Routines? Tedium? Not in the Porsche Engineering vocabulary.
Our working world is created by the individuals who work with us. Individuals who are characterized not only by outstanding technical competence, but also their openness, communicativeness and friendly demeanor. Our customers notice that, and it is what makes us so successful as a company.
Major projects like the co-development and testing of the Cayenne Coupé involve multiple different departments at Porsche Engineering. The engineers thereby not only bring their technical expertise to bear, but also demonstrate their team-spirit and social expertise.
Emmanuel Bogner has been a part of the Quality and Testing team since 2018. In his daily working life, he has the opportunity to get to examine and get to know the vehicles extremely well.
"One acts as an interface to all the departments involved and can thus broaden one's own horizon in many areas and learn a lot of new things every day. I can make my contribution to the development of vehicles that are consistently among the best in their category worldwide."
The preparation time for complete vehicle testing can take anywhere between four weeks and eight months. Emmanuel Bogner is responsible for ensuring that the work of all participating colleagues and departments can proceed as efficiently and smoothly as possible.
Benjamin Bernard has been working for Porsche Engineering in the Complete Vehicle Acoustics department since 2014. The multifaceted character of his job has always fascinated him.
"To ensure the success of my work, I not only need to perform noise and vibration measurements on the track and on various test benches, but also talk to many different stakeholders to ensure that the design recommendations are implemented by the different designers".
The fact that the design changes to the new Cayenne Coupé can’t be allowed to affect the aeroacoustic performance of the base model presented the acoustics engineers with a particular challenge during testing.
Konstantin Schech began his career at Porsche Engineering in 2014 as an intern and has been a member of the Complete Vehicle and Quality team since 2015.
"In addition to working on the overall product, I also have a lot of experience in the areas of bodywork, electrics, chassis and powertrain. We are also active worldwide, which results in interesting and exciting tasks and projects abroad."
In his projects, Konstantin Schech particularly appreciates the healthy mix of working in the office and actively working on the vehicle itself. For major projects such as the complete vehicle development of the Cayenne Coupé, he can make good use of his experience from his everyday work at Porsche Engineering.
