How is Working at TDK Electronics?

 Dyego Pic

“I started my career 13 years ago as Process Technician in Brazil. After 3 years, I moved to Zhuhai as Process Engineering Manager, working for different Business Groups and departments. In 2021 I took over as Head of Mechanical Innovation Department. One year later I moved to Malaysia as Head of Industrial Engineering at Johor Bahru. I like to work in an international environment with different cultures, multi-disciplinary teams and I feel excited with new challenges, that I see as an opportunity for growing and learning.”

Rocío Caracena, Online Campaign Manager, Munich

“I'm an engineer, but after finishing my studies, I discovered the fascinating world of marketing. That's why I decided to study a master's degree that gave me the opportunity to start my internship in the product marketing at the Málaga site in Spain in 2019. There, I grew professionally and personally, working in a multicultural environment. Now I’m an Online Campaign Manager at Corporate Communictions in Munich, Germany, where I continue to grow and improve.”

“I started my career 25 years ago as Process Technician in Brazil. After three years, I moved to Spain as Development Engineer, later to China as Operations Director and after that to India. In 2015 I took over the responsibility for the production site Zhuhai FTZ in China as CEO. Since last year I moved back to Europe as the COO of the Piezo & Protection Devices Business Group. My aim is to steadily improve the overall operational performance, the quality of processes and products as well as the productivity of the Business Group. Every day I enjoy very much the drive from Graz to the factory and back – the fact that we are not located in an urban area gives me the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful landscape in Styria and listen to good music. As you can see, there is a world open to you at TDK Electronics to become whatever you want, anywhere!”

“I am currently pursuing my Master’s degree in International Business Management and am responsible for employer branding at CHR. Here I'm involved in exciting projects related to HR marketing activities such as the TopEmployer certification program or university marketing. It’s important to me to strengthen our employer brands externally, but also to shape our work culture internally together with our employees.”
