Nadine Winkler

From a very early age, Nadine Winkler was interested in technology. So, naturally, she decided to attend a technical vocational college and then go on to metalworking school. The car enthusiast found her way to WISI via the Pforzheim Recruiting Days. In 2015, she began her apprenticeship as a technical product designer. Since February 2019, she has been adding her creative ideas as a valuable part of the design team at WISI Automotive.

If you ask her how things are working out with her predominantly male colleagues, she grins and gives a thumbs up.


Melanie Roller

Today we would like to introduce you to the queen of our payroll department, Ms. Roller. She still remembers vividly the day she started her training as an industrial clerk on September 1, 1993. For many years now, she has been working in the HR department, where she is responsible for the entire payroll accounting process, including all preparatory and follow-up work.


Robin Knothe

Career at WISI: The company logo on his satellite receiver triggered the application to WISI. Years on, after a successfully completed apprenticeship, Robin Knothe currently works as a financial accountant. A few years ago, he earned his degree in business administration with part -time courses.


Evelyn Wottschel

Evelyn-Magdalena Wottschel started her apprenticeship as an industrial clerk in 2017. Having successfully completed her training, she supported the HR department. The birth of her daughter this March sounded the bell for a new phase of her life, and she is currently on parental leave.


Aylin Neumann

Aylin Neumann has been a valuable member of the WISI team for many years.

"I already did my training here. Today, I work part-time as a sales assistant and thanks to flexible working hours, I can reconcile family and career."

Sabine Lindauer

We say goodbye to our colleague Sabine Lindauer, who has been with the company for 43 years. At the age of 18, she started her apprenticeship as an office clerk at WISI. Afterwards Ms. Lindauer worked as a secretary to the senior technical manager until she took a break to raise her two children. Upon her return she took over a task within the materials management for a time to then move on to the domestic sales support team where she worked until her farewell last week. Now the time has come to fully devote herself to her many hobbies. Ms. Lindauer is a passionate dancer and gardener, and does voluntary work in various areas.
