NXP: Why is Romania such a special place to work?
MB: NXP advances technology through a global reach. Our activities in
focus on software development for automotive, microcontrollers and

operations. Our engineers concentrate on software IP (automotive,
microcontroller and connectivity devices) and board solutions. Software is at
the heart of NXP products. As customer demand for software enablement
continues to grow, the team in Bucharest is instrumental in maintaining NXP’s
industry leadership in software enablement, and in stretching the boundaries
of innovation. This is why our motto is "Bringing Software to the Next Level."
NXP: How many sites does NXP have in Romania and how many people work there?

present, I am looking to recruit 130 new people, mainly for Automotive
Processing, Edge Processing and Crypto & Security.
NXP: Any closing thoughts?
MB: I love being a part of projects that allow me to spread our culture; our
trust in young professionals and our belief that everyone with a “can do”
attitude can make an impact that matters. This makes me firmly believe that
the future of innovation will start here!
