This gave me a wide view of both the Technical and Installation departments. As for the long term, I really enjoyed the time spent here, I liked the company and the city, and I can imagine myself moving here for a longer period.” – Tudor, Technical Department.

I learned to use new programs and also improved my knowledge with other tasks.” – Julian, Research & Development Department.
