 With excellent interpersonal skills, you are results-oriented and you have strong communication skills. Self-driven, you love to take on big challenges. Your reactiveness, rigor, flexibility and excellent listening capabilities will give you what it takes to meet your customers' needs.


Willingness to travel up to 70% of the working time is required.


Join a solid industrial group with real opportunities for professional development!
