Company Updates

  • COVID-19

    A small tribute to medical professionals who put their lives on the line in order to save ours: in one week IT Infrastructure Specialist Colleen Geller, her mother and Bosch associates Abigail Nieter and Elizabeth Lynch, were able to donate 40+ sewn masks to the Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where Colleen’s dear friend is an ER nurse. Colleen also grocery shops and sends self-care products to help her friend through the hard days. #payitforward #healthcareheroes #letsberemarkable

  • Recruited on her college campus three years ago, Arianna Ramirez, IT Project Coordinator and Agile Scrum Master, was attracted to Bosch because her values aligned so closely with the values of our founder Robert Bosch. “Having exceptionally supportive leaders have shaped me into the leader I am today.” Outside of work, Arianna co-chairs Women@Bosch, conquers fitness goals and spends time with her cats.

    I have been working at Bosch full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunities with growing portions of the organization are well funded and comfortable. There is a large amount of regulation to deal with due to the size of the company but for the most part there are good ideas being made into realities.

    Cons

    Tough to keep talent, new culture of software development means that company is still figuring out how to support developers as it pivots into that area from engineering
