Robert Rudnicki, Product Engineer
Born in Poland, Robert Rudnicki came to Switzerland for professional reasons. His passion for laser scanners and surveying solutions brought him to us.
"I studied geodesy and cartography. I was particularly interested in innovative measurement techniques such as TLS, LiDAR and photogrammetry. Both my engineering and master's thesis were based on terrestrial laser scanning. I always wanted to be involved in the development of these solutions rather than just using them. Leica Geosystem, part of Hexagon, has always been a company that puts a lot of emphasis on innovation in my eyes and is also one of the largest companies in the world in this industry. That's why I always wanted to work there in product management. I am glad that I am now part of the Hexagon family."
Stigwall Johan, Senior Engineer
Johan Stigwall works in Photonics at the Hexagon Technology Center, Hexagon's development center at the Swiss site in Heerbrugg.
"The best thing about working in our company is that we are at the interface between research and development. At this early stage of development, there is room for creative exploration, experimentation and technical immersion. Thanks to Hexagon's wide range of high-end products, there are always new and varied challenges. In the end, it's also very satisfying to see your own innovations translated into first-class devices by the product lines."
Women in Engineering
At our company, gender or background doesn't matter - anyone can be successful. Women are particularly important in technical roles, as they approach challenges differently from their male counterparts. We’re convinced that the interplay of diverse perspectives of men and women makes teams successful.Some of our female engineers tell us what it means to work for us. Watch the video.
