"Every time I see an electric bus passing by I think: hey, there goes my software!"

Sioux was my first choice

“After graduating I started looking for a job. For me, Sioux was my first choice. They offered a good salary, personal contact, an ample training budget and the possibility to work somewhat less than 40 hrs/week.”

 Technical and soft skills

"I really get challenged in my work. After graduation, I thought I knew everything. This is something I reconsidered quickly. Especially in the first working years I learned a lot by following specific training courses. I like the fact that I can choose training programs myself. In addition to technical training courses, I also have followed various soft skills training courses which I find very interesting.

I have been supervising a trainee and one of my colleagues for a while. I enjoy supporting others and having a coaching role. At Sioux, I get those opportunities."

Working on the future of the automotive industry

"At Sioux we are working on the future of the automotive industry, using the latest software and electronics. "I am very proud when I see my work in daily life. Every time I see an electric bus passing by I think: 'hey, there goes my software!'."
