Kai’s story

Kai’s story

Kai Wang’s career path at ZF began in 2015. After successfully completing a six-month onboarding in Schweinfurt, he started working as a project manager in the e-mobility division in his home country of Shanghai, China. After five years, his path led him back to a ZF location in Germany and since then he has been fulfilling the position of System Developer at ZF in Schweinfurt. Kai chose this career path because he has always been interested in realizing his potential in a future-oriented field.
It’s exciting for Kai to work in an innovative field in which he can achieve personal growth and self-fulfillment — ZF provides all the necessary resources for this. Not only are the hardware resources important to Kai in his work environment, but also the human resources: what he appreciates most about his job at ZF are the exchanges with his international colleagues. Through the comprehensive expertise and know-how of his team, he always has the opportunity to experience something new, acquire new knowledge and grow as a person.
"ZF is one of the few companies that can deliver an entire e-drive system.”
