EDC Careers » Professionals » Overview
- What do we do?
We DesignmoreJet engines and aviation structures, high- and low-power turbines, electric motors and power generators, oil and gas industry installations, train engines – these are just a few examples from a long list of products developed and upgraded by our engineers. We employ world-class specialists in the fields of mechanics, electric equipment, automatics, chemical and process engineering, materials and many more.
We Support ManufacturingmoreWe focus on efficient communication between engineers designing machines and teams that create the final product. We realize that this is the key to the development of advanced equipment conforming to the most stringent quality standards. We constantly share our experience and make effort to improve our services.
We Support Equipment OperationmoreOur engineers support GE with their technical knowledge and experience in solving operation and maintenance problems all over the world. Whether it is a jet engine malfunction in New York or technical wear of a gas turbine in a power plant in Tanzania, experts from the Engineering Design Center are always alert and ready to deal with issues. When necessary, they travel to the most distant corners of the world to support our customers on site.
EDC also houses service teams which modify and upgrade existing installations so that they comply with current reliability and environment safety standards.
We Develop SoftwaremoreGeneral Electric is currently shifting its focus to digital technologies and the conversion is also visible at the Engineering Design Center where the software teams are growing most dynamically. We develop aviation solutions using low- and high-level programming languages. We manage Big Data – very large amounts of data extracted from existing power turbine installations. We offer an array of professional challenges for software developers wishing to advance in their skills by combining the newest IT solutions with world-class engineering technologies.
We Research and TestmoreFor many years the Institute of Aviation has been growing its research and test infrastructure by gradually adding new labs – from the Materials Laboratory, through Controls and Jet Engines Facilities, the Repair Technologies Development Center, the Bearings and Components Lab, to the unique High Pressure Testing Laboratory for tests of subsea oil & gas equipment.
The newest investment is the Gas Turbines Center – built with support of European Union funds, it is currently one of the most advanced centers for gas turbines in the world. The center’s innovation workshop with its prototyping room equipped with specialist apparatus such as 3D printers enables our engineers to build various models and prototypes. The repair shop is dedicated to fitting, soldering, welding and sanding works, while the assembly shop is the spot for tests, simulations and trainings. Finally, the GT Center’s vacuum chamber allows testing most components designed at EDC without the need to rescale them.
- What do we offer?
Compelling employment conditions and extra life insurance for employees and their families induce sense of security and stability.
By funding private health insurance and regular health-promoting initiatives within the HealthAhead initiative (Fruity Wednesdays, medical checkups, information campaigns and more) we encourage our employees to take care of the most important thing – themselves.
What is also crucial, we support sports passions of our employees – whether it’s the Multisport card subsidies or internal sports groups sponsorship (starter packs for running events financed by employer, regular workouts with professional sports trainers, etc.), we do our best to keep the sports flame burning.
At EDC we make sure that the voice of the team is heard. One example is the opening of a new, more spacious and refurbished bike room early in 2016 – currently the largest in Poland. Our employees have plenty of room to leave their bicycles, there is space for bike maintenance and repair works, not to mention lockers and showers. Biking to work has never been so easy!
- Career Path
EDC gives you a chance for personal development on a challenging, individually tailored career path, depending on your interests and personal abilities.
