Testimonials of our employees
Marcel Chélos, Helbling Beratung + Bauplanung AG
After graduating as an MSc Civil Engineer ETH, I started my career as a project employee at Helbling. After 1.5 years, I was able to progress to project manager and, after another 6 years, to senior project manager. In this role, I am able to assist various clients with complex infrastructure projects. I find it exciting to work in multidisciplinary teams to develop viable solutions to current project challenges. At Helbling I can draw on the wealth of experience of long-serving employees. At the same time, I can contribute to the training of new colleagues through my own experience.
Sebastian Beck, Team Leader at Helbling Precision Engineering Inc.
I started my Helbling career as a project manager in Zurich. When Helbling expanded to San Diego in the US, I took the opportunity to relocate and to contribute to the growth of our presence in the medical device industry as a Team Section Lead. I’m passionate about developing products together with our clients because the projects are diverse, fast-paced and often result in improved patient care.
Christine Zingg-Graf, Director at Helbling Business Advisors
Helbling offers an ideal environment for a steep learning curve: responsibility is accorded early on, both with regard to project work and contact with customers. Hard work and performance are encouraged, appreciated and rewarded. These policies also apply to employees at differing points in their lives: after an intensive period at the outset of my career, I was happy to take advantage of extended maternity leave. I currently work part-time, but with full responsibility for projects and customers.
Emanuel Wettstein, Senior Manager at Helbing Business Advisors
Helbling affords me a unique opportunity to be part of our customers’ business organisation for a limited period, to immerse myself in their world and work together with the management to come up with solutions for the challenges they face. It’s an extremely creative process and involves strategic reorientation into growth fields as well as developing ideas to improve earnings. Effective implementation of planned change requires customer involvement plus a high degree of flexibility and personal initiative as well as a sporting approach to dealing with time pressure. It keeps us on our toes – and I like that!
Christoph Frei, Project Leader at Helbling Technik
I was encouraged to develop and implement my own ideas early on as a part-time student and engineer at Helbling Technik. Nothing has changed in that respect, even though I am now a Project Leader with responsibility for much more ambitious plans. Initially, it is always about gaining an overall understanding of the task at hand. One then has to identify ideas that could deliver a solution and turn them into prototypes. My work revolves around this sort of analytical-creative activity. One of the most satisfying aspects of my work is when we use the prototypes to verify our concepts and find they meet expectations and satisfy requirements.
Tamara Hubli, Development Engineer at Helbling Technik
As a development engineer in mechanics, I appreciate the professional but friendly working environment at Helbling Technik. As an employee with an engineering services provider, I work together with a wide variety of industry partners in the semiconductor industry and am involved in identifying and implementing optimum solutions for our customers as part of a team of specialists from different disciplines. Developing new projects on a continuous basis makes my work at Helbling varied, instructive and interesting.
Frederic De Simoni, Team Section Lead at Helbling Technik
As a partner for innovation, Helbling faces challenges daily in forging new paths. Collaboration with companies that are pioneers in digital transformation make our work especially exciting. Working together with our customers in shaping the future is a fascinating opportunity that requires creativity, openness and a willingness to learn. The sharing of knowledge in a variety of disciplines is unique at Helbling and allows for new approaches being turned into reality through new configurations of specialists.
Linda Arnet, Project Lead at Helbling Beratung + Bauplanung
In my position at Helbling, I enjoy the variety that comes with working on many different projects and activities. Another bonus is that, as project manager for the Construction Engineering Client Services team, I can freely divide up my work over long stretches and profit from flexible working times. I also have a great deal of independence in planning and carrying out my tasks, based on my manager’s trust in me.
Matthias Pfister, Head of Development Team Optical Data Science at Helbling Technik
I enjoy the development opportunities that arise from challenging, high-tech projects and working with competent colleagues. When I first joined Helbling, I was given the opportunity to broaden my professional knowledge and tackle exciting interdisciplinary challenges. Soon I was managing small projects, and then larger ones, with more influence over their management. I now act as a contractor within the company and am building a team that specialises in a new service. I love the versatility and am fascinated by our constant discoveries of new fields of activity.
Blenera Fazliji, Assistant at Helbling PLM Solutions
Helbling provided me with two professional opportunities that I immediately took advantage of. After completing my office assistant training in 2016, Helbling offered me a shorter apprenticeship as a clerk, and during that time I could count on all manner of support. After successfully completing the apprentice, I had the great luck of being hired for an open position in the PLM Solutions division. After just a few months, I was convinced: Helbling gives me an outstanding basis for further training in my professional future!
