Hongyan Li – R&D Design Team Leader (Hubei, China)
Valeo offers jobs that are diverse and rewarding. We give voice to our teams who share their experiences with potential candidates.
I have come a long way since 2007 when I joined the R&D department as a product engineer trainee. I became a Valeo school trainer and was nominated Valeo mechanical design field expert. I have developed sufficient expertise and knowledge to support our design and development teams. I also work on control panel development. I am very busy!
