Employee testimonial


Thibaud G.

“Like a lot of my friends, I was mainly interested in aerospace when I first joined Thales. I started out working in avionics, on flight management systems, which was fascinating. Then, last year, during a training session, I got chatting to a colleague who was working on underwater systems. That also sounded interesting, but what really got me hooked was when I saw the movie The Wolf’s Call. Now I’m working on sonar systems at Sophia-Antipolis – a really nice location, which is an added bonus.”
