Quality Manager

Air Traffic Management
Gatineau FREQUENTIS Canada Ltd. From now on Full time
Job Introduction
Frequentis Group with headquarters in Vienna is an international supplier of communication and information systems for control centres with safety-critical tasks. Mission-critical control centres around the world keep our planes safe in the sky, our urban and regional trains safe on the railroads, and our ships and boats safe on the seas.
