What department or program is right for you?
From the first drawing to the final tests. This is how we would describe the work of Technical Development, which plays a significant role in the creation of each new ŠKODA AUTO model.
The backbone of the entire department are teams of enthusiastic professionals, who deal with the various stages of car development. Whether it is the initial assignment, planning, design, conceptual or actual development, or final crash and other various tests – we always use cutting-edge processes and technologies.
This department is responsible for making the production of each model as smooth as possible. It all starts with the logistics of individual materials, parts and components and ends with their assembly and installation. That is not all, though.
The year 2015 saw ŠKODA AUTO create the first Industry 4.0- focused job position in the Production & Logistics area, and the Company continues digitising the whole department. We design and implement new technologies for vehicle electronics activation while transferring outputs of extensive analyses to vehicle assembly operations, as well as, for example, to processes that take place in our new paint shop. We are proud to be using state-of-the-art technologies while constantly creating new positions that cover a really wide range of applications in various fields of expertise.
We offer university graduates an annual international Trainee Program during which they will gain valuable work experience, and much more.
During the winter and summer semester, Trainees will see how one of the most modern companies in the Czech Republic works. This is a great start to their career, especially for those who have not yet decided which area they would like to specialize in. Trainees will try out work across different departments and they can look forward to internships abroad as well.
University students can work with us during their studies - as part of their internship or when writing a final thesis.
There is nothing better than testing out a theory in practice. This is what makes the internship a great opportunity for students to experience firsthand what it is like to work for a company like ŠKODA AUTO. Cooperating with the best in the field brings not only valuable contacts, but also practical experience, which students can then put to good use when writing their final thesis.
Electromobility is undoubtedly the future of the automotive industry. This is why we offer graduates of technical universities a special Tech-Trainee Program.
Thanks to this program, Trainees will have the opportunity to work on unique projects regarding electromobility. They will get firsthand experience about how individual departments work – from development to production to quality control, with an experienced mentor at their side.
I HAVE TO STAND BY WHAT I SAY 100%

ERGONOMICS IS EVERYWHERE
Sit up straight, move the monitor to your eye level, take a break, and stretch from time to time. Most of us know how to keep our bodies healthy while working in an office. But what does ergonomics look like for production workers? It is important to adapt the shape of parts to the capabilities of the human body, use handling equipment, and also to find a balance between activity and appropriate forms of rest. Lucie Vacková, professional coordinator from the Health Services and Ergonomics Department, shares her experience.
Even the slightest disturbing sound in a car can frighten the driver, with dangerous results. 💡 Car noise is more important than it might seem. Driving in a car that has its acoustics under control is both more pleasant and significantly safer. And how are acoustics measured? The car is brought into a spacious semi-anechoic chamber stuffed with a special material. Then the car starts, warms up, the rollers spin and noise is recorded and measured using microphones and artificial models of human heads. 📣 "We do tests in summer and winter, and cars are driven beyond the Arctic Circle or in great heat. At low temperatures, the damping materials change their properties and may cease to fulfill their purpose. For example, rubber will stop sealing and soundproofing when it hardens,” explains Filip Nováček, an expert in car acoustics.
