Below you can read about some of our professionals and their thoughts.

Lauri

I am Lauri, M.Sc., from Tampere. During my few years at Proxion, I have jumped into the deep end of the railway engineering pool. I started working at Proxion as a student and I am still here. I wrote my master’s thesis for the company and before I even graduated I was able to get a permanent job in signalling system planning. At Proxion, you are given a lot of responsibility based on your interests and abilities and you quickly get into the actual planning work. I was a total rookie when I started in signalling system planning, but you learn by doing and with a good team you learn quickly. At the moment I specialise in railway signalling systems, rail capacity and functionality assessments as well as the Europe-wide train control system ERTMS.
While working at Proxion, I have learned basically everything I now know about railways. Even though I work with signalling systems, the coexistence of various technical fields under one roof supports wide-ranging learning. In my project-based job I have also acquired general skills, for example to do with project and quality management.

I am particularly proud of Proxion’s position and reputation as an expert in demanding railway infrastructure projects.

My occupational well-being is supported by a meaningful job description, interesting projects and wonderful co-workers. Proxion is growing rapidly, but we have managed to maintain a small company’s sense of community, which is fantastic.

Elina

My name is Elina and I have a Master of Science degree in civil engineering. I have worked at Proxion since my graduation in the autumn of 2016.

I started my career at Proxion doing auxiliary planning tasks. My first tasks involved making drawings and creating geotechnical investigation programmes. Once I became familiar with the planning programmes, projects and the company’s ways of working, I quickly got involved in the actual planning tasks. Through challenging projects I have rapidly gained new knowledge and skills. I currently work on railway and geotechnical engineering tasks.
While working at Proxion I have learned a lot, especially to do with railway planning. I have learned about track geometry as well as superstructure, substructure and foundation planning. My geotechnical skills have improved, for example, in terms of stability and settlement calculations. I have also developed by project skills.

The best things about working at Proxion are the relaxed atmosphere and fantastic co-workers. Diverse and challenging tasks as well as an ability to influence my duties keep me motived.

Panu

I am Panu and I have been working at Proxion since the autumn of 2018 when I joined the Proxion digital service team. I have worked in software development for over 15 years, but I had no previous experience of the railway world.

At first I worked with the ProX-EIS and ProX-TRL systems as a software architect. Currently I specialise in all phases of software development from design to maintenance.

At Proxion I have learned about the railway industry, functional safety and programmable logic controllers.
I am proud of our agility and courage to think outside the box. New solutions cannot be created by following old patterns. What I like the most about working at Proxion is the opportunity to develop myself and to develop solutions to a variety of challenging problems.
