An initial intake of 40 in a range of roles from software development to HR has joined Visteon during the first quarter of 2019 and the team is looking forward to welcoming new colleagues as recruitment efforts are intensified. The new Timisoara Technology Center is planning to expand resources to 400 employees in 2020.
The Timisoara team is focused on a wide range of software development skills and talent acquisition is currently centered on embedded automotive developers, candidates with Android and AUTOSAR experience, functional safety (ASIL B/C) knowledge, existing automotive experience in cluster and infotainment development and, importantly, experience in working in an Agile development environment.
“Visteon is making no secret of the fact that we are looking for the best individuals in software engineering to augment our team in Timisoara. Our aim is to create a thriving hub demonstrating leading-edge expertise that can push Visteon’s software development capabilities to the next level - as well as providing an attractive option to those in the region looking to advance their career within the industry.”
Timisoara’s primary function is software development for advanced cockpit electronics products (digital instrument clusters, infotainment and head-up displays) catering for European automakers and will collaborate with Visteon’s Chief Technology Office and the European technology centers on the development of new technologies for autonomous driving.
As a key software development hub, collaborating with global R&D facilities, Visteon's newest technology center is set up to directly infulence the technology space in Romania, while it builds an expert team of top talent and establishes a center of excellence that will contribute significantly to ground-breaking new solutions in automotive.
