Teamwork is fundamental
Without everyone pulling together, we would not be able to deliver the projects.
The projects we work on can’t be done by one person: they require many different people’s expertise in order to get the job done. Teamwork is fundamental to the project and without everyone pulling together, we would not be able to deliver the projects. At the moment I am the project manager for the antennas on SES12 and I work closely with a large number of people with various skills, from technicians to test engineers and engineering support.
Looking at new ways to do things is really exciting
I am very passionate about the job I do; we work on cutting-edge projects that push the technology to its limits while also being driven to reduce costs. We always have to look at new ways of doing things, which is really exciting.
