Welcome interview - Abdoulahi

Abdoulahi recently joined Stanley Robotics as a Quality Assurance Manager. He’s in charge of assuring certifications for our robots and managing every aspect of quality! We asked him some questions on his arrival.OK, Let’s start by introducing yourself to our readers (Just about who you are, your career so far etc.) Well, first of all, I am older than I actually look like, it's funny. I trained in general engineering and have worked in industrial system engineering for twelve years working for two big multinationals and an SME. The SME had many similarities with a startup, that is to say, there was still a lot to be done. The difference is that a startup is just coming into being whilst that's not necessarily the case for an SME. Even if an SME has been around for fifteen years or more, sometimes they might not have necessarily addressed all the issues from the start. This is what I liked at Stanley Robotics, to have this sensitivity to quality since inception. The multinationals I worked for were Thomson Telecom (now named Technicolor) in telecommunication and Thales. During these different experiences, I dealt with all the different areas of quality. Each area has a very specific job: "product quality, supplier quality, production quality ... It was my job to cover all these areas one by one in the multinationals. When I moved to the SME there was no quality post at all and so I took care of it all alone. The creative startup environment with an innovative product and attractive content (website, blog ...) is what really drew me to the role. Robotics activity is one of the fields of the future. The allure of innovation and the service project also pushed me towards SR. Do you have any other hidden talents? I speak two languages, Fulani and Wolof, which have no impact on my professional life but that I like to put on my resume and it is often the subject of curiosity with many companies I've been in contact with: "Fulani, Wolof, what are they?" I always tell them that they're the languages of the future and that if they don't hire me, it would be a big loss in the future (laughs). Otherwise, I am very much a homebody, my passions revolve around my family. Can you tell us a bit more about your role here at Stanley Robotics? My role is "quality assurance manager". Today the focus is on product quality and more specifically on certifications. Running in parallel to that there is plenty of technical documentation, for example, to describe a process, how to manage technical documentation, how to name and index them etc. I'm also involved in all other aspects of quality such as supplier quality or production quality and then on the process between the different departments. Finally, do you have a “funniest word”? There is a word that I discovered from my friend from Marseille that I find funny: "emboucaner". Thank you Abdoulahi!

Welcome Interview - Erwan

OK, Let’s start by introducing yourself to our readers (Just about who you are, your career so far etc.)So, I started in the automotive sector. I have always had a fascination with cars, and I still have. I started with a Technician’s certificate in car maintenance, so I repaired vehicles in garages. I then did a sandwich course at an engineering school where I began working for Delphi, an automotive supplier. This is where I discovered purchasing. I started in supplier quality assurance where I was involved in improving the quality of parts that were provided by our suppliers, in the electronics department. Having built contacts with suppliers, I pivoted into purchasing. The whole business relationship was of great interest to me, including participating in the strategic aspect of supplier selection.

Welcome Interview - Stéphane

Stephane recently joined Stanley Robotics as an Automation Engineer. He’s in charge of programming PLCs for automated process and safety of the cabins.OK, Let’s start by introducing yourself to our readers (Just about who you are, your career so far etc.)I had a French Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Science, so I could say that I already knew that I was going to become an engineer before going to High School. I did everything I could to become one: so after my A-level, I studied Advanced Maths & Physics in preparation classes for competitive entrance examination to French Engineering schools, then I joined the ENSIL, an Engineering School in Limoges, where I graduated in Mechatronics. I had a specialization in Mechatronics because it was a field which, at the time, led to many career paths, in particular in big industrial companies that were developing innovative systems. I had a great passion for aeronautics from the beginning, and during my years of studies I was drawn to automation and robotics which pushed me to do internships in these areas.
