Simon

| Project Manager

Every day is a completely different day at Prodrive Technologies. Depending on your agenda you can start whenever it suits you best! As a project manager you have a lot of contact with people during the day: engineers, purchasers, customers and so on. Achieving goals with your team in an environment where everything is possible makes project management a very stimulating role within Prodrive Technologies.

I have a background in mechanical engineering and currently I’m working on a product for an electric car with an 800V drive train. The customer of this product is one of the top three suppliers of all the big car manufacturers. Therefore, I’m involved in a lot of automotive processes. One of them is the validation process. This process has recently been finished for our first prototype, where we validate the product against several (extreme) tests. Apart from the technical activities, communication is a key element during the project to achieve goals together with the customer and the team. The combination of working with people and operating in an engineering environment such as Prodrive Technologies is what gives me energy!
