Vigneshwar Kalyanasundaram

Engineer for Tire Development

New, Unknown, Just Right!
"Just call me Vig," says Vigneshwar Kalyanasundaram. Unlike his name, the exuberant 27-year-old is not the least bit complicated. And he loves a challenge: "I get a kick out of jumping into cold water," he says, "I much prefer it to a warm shower."

The unknown is also what brought him to Continental. During his interview, he was asked whether he wanted to go to Germany. Even though he couldn't speak a word of German. Working for an automotive supplier that actively brings together people with completely different backgrounds? That appealed to Vig immensely. As did doing something that not everyone can do.

"Tires are not sexy, but the development is exciting. And I don't want a cool title, I'd rather have a cool job." And that he has found as an engineer in Tire Development.
