Sara is an Advanced Engineering Manager in the ADAS department, and her story is a fantastic example of how important professional development is at Ficosa.
Sara was struck by a camera project where the quality of the lens would be an important part of the final product. Without a second thought, she sent us her application and started as an Optical Engineer in the ADAS team, co-designing the lenses for each of the cameras, in addition to following up with purchases, projects and clients. Within a year, she was promoted to Engineering Supervisor and went on to manage the Image Engineering Department, which employed 12 Ficosians at that time. Today, she manages 22 colleagues and has created two new teams: Car Application and Image Quality Validation.

JavierJavier is one of our oldest Ficosians after 15 years with us. So, if he tells you that you must be the engine of change, you should listen to him carefully. Autonomy, desire to learn and achieving goals is what, according to Javier, have led him to be our Corporate Industrial Process Director. You can’t just sit and wait for things to happen.
