Hi, my name is Lukas and I’m rather proud to be the future Dr. Auto. What I mean is: I am currently completing my vocational training at Volkswagen as a motor vehicle mechatronics technician. My own car has never been in the workshop, I just love the nuts and bolts of cars and tinkering with them. And now I am simply learning everything from the ground up. It is also super exciting to see how the growth in digitalisation is changing the profession. I need to be as much a professional tradesman as an IT nerd in order to check and fit modern vehicles.
Sound exciting? Then apply right here, right now.
See you soon
