Our ways to Villach

In our search for work opportunities in Europe we unfortunately had to split up our family in the beginning. While Srivatsa found a job at Infineon Villach in December 2014, I (Rashmi) worked in Stuttgart (Germany) and also lived there with our two daughters. Only through the special efforts of Infineon’s human resources department, I finally also got a job offer for the Villach site. Since April 2016 commuting has luckily come to an end.

  • Villach is so peaceful and simply a safe and delightfully calm place for our two kids.
  • The city offers us an exceptional work-life balance every day.
