Make an impact in Engineering at Philips Lighting



We needed to keep our design solution functional enough for everyday use and still allowing a touch of emotion to make it both fun and personal. Decisions I make have a direct impact on the people using the product, so I know the work I deliver is really meaningful for the end-user, and that's rewarding."
