Jobs and training

Jobs and training

GvA is a well-established company that is growing steadily. You could be exactly what we are looking for if you

  • enjoy taking on responsibility,
  • see it as a personal challenge to turn the phrase "it won't work" into "it will work",
  • see hierarchies as an impediment to your personal development opportunities,
  • and are open to unusual ways of working and solutions to problems.
  • Teamwork is expressly encouraged because the team makes all the difference.

As a modern, medium-sized company, we set great store by good training.

That's why all of our employees are given an intensive induction and further training. Since power electronics is a niche area within the field of electrical engineering, you will be given an intensive and efficient introduction to your tasks by experienced colleagues. This goes for all of the divisions within our company.

As part of our company, you will experience the highest performance levels and state-of-the-art technology, both in the workplace and at our customers' premises. As experts in power electronics and power semiconductors, we can offer you excellent career prospects.
