Roche has one of the richest pipelines of new products, and many of them will be manufactured in Kaiseraugst. In my new role as a Value Stream Lead I will be responsible for a group that enables the launch and commercial manufacturing of our new products and drives the implementation of new manufacturing technologies. This requires a strong collaboration of many functions and departments at Kaiseraugst and globally. We strive for a significant reduction of tech transfer time while ensuring the high quality of our products as there are many patients waiting for Roche breakthrough medicines. I am very proud that my team and I can contribute to save or improve someone's life.
The place to Work
Roche offers many benefits for flexible working, sports activities and professional development opportunities. As a working mom, I appreciate the flexible working model, especially a few years back when I had a longer commute from Zurich. I am also very grateful that Roche offered me multiple career opportunities; I worked on challenging assignments in technical development and manufacturing science and technology. I have had the pleasure to lead projects in emerging markets supporting manufacturing localisation in Russia and enabling market access for our products. I also worked with our external partners in Europe, North America and Asia both for the commercial manufacturing of our products as well as for technology transfers and the launching of new products.
Roche puts a lot of emphasis on diversity and inclusion, embracing different genders, nationalities and backgrounds, offering equal opportunities for professional development. In all areas I worked at Roche, people are fully passionate and willing to go the extra mile. Roche encourages employees to try new ways of working to question existing processes and make them more efficient to explore innovative ways. I am lucky to interact with many smart people, and I value collaboration beyond functional and cultural barriers.
During the COVID crisis I work a lot from home, I am on site only a few days per week or for special cases. However, I am looking forward to spending more time on site once the situation with corona improves, as I like the Kaiseraugst area. Its modern buildings offer space for creativity, to come together, discuss and collaborate. There are also sports opportunities on campus. It is very convenient for me as I live just a few kilometers away from Kaiseraugst.
