      Always moving forward: Brandon’s journey 10 years in

      Are you looking for a career that constantly pushes you upward? Are you ready to unleash your full potential and be on a team of innovators? If so, Continental could have just the career for you.

      We’re on a mission to change the way the world moves – and key to that is our unique culture that aims to keep our people fulfilled and developing, professionally.

      Brandon Burt is one of these people. Now a Product Manager in Research and Development, Brandon has held a number of roles with increasing responsibility during his 15 years at Continental. He recently told us all about it.

      My first role at Continental really set me up well for the rest of my career.

      I was a System Tester, so that gave me a lot of knowledge about our products and the experience to move upwards. When it came time, I was able to talk about basically every feature of our products and relate to people in different positions across the company, which really helped me.

      I work on telematics, which are products that bring cellular connectivity into vehicles.

      I’ve worked in this area of the business the entire time I’ve been here. I did the System Tester role for my first nine years, then became the Project Test Lead, where I was in charge of a team of testers. In the five years after that, I became a System Integration Lead for our Telematics Platform project, so I was responsible for testing and integration to make sure all our software modules came together into a release with quality.

      In the last two years we’ve moved toward agile software development. So, now I’m Product Manager and in charge of managing the project back log and prioritizing the work for my program team.

      It’s a challenge, of course, to learn how to lead other people instead of just yourself.

      But Continental does offer opportunities to help you grow. There are a lot of leadership, technical, and behavioral trainings available that can be very beneficial for your career if you research them and are pro-active about participating in them.

      Continental has really defined a culture for itself the last few years.
