Stefan Staijen - Service Engineer

“I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel extensively with SGL and step onto the pitches of some of the world’s largest stadiums. It’s hard work, travelling sometimes sounds more romantic than it is, but as a football fan, I find immense joy in having what I consider the most beautiful ‘office’ imaginable. The technology we work with is endlessly fascinating, and the ongoing development of new products ensures that the work remains both beautiful and challenging.”
