From the outset of his career, he has been active in the mining industry. In 1992, he started working in the KWK Wesoła coal mine in Mysłowice, initially as an underground trainee, and then he worked his way up the supervisory ladder from the position of overman, through shift foreman, branch manager and mining foreman, to mining works manager and deputy chief mining engineer. While working at the KWK Wesoła coal mine until 2007, he was also qualified as Head of Mine Operations.

He gained his mining experience in areas of the greatest natural hazards, including methane, crumbling, fire and water hazards, managing large teams of people. He has also proven himself as a mine rescue worker and managing direct rescue operations as an Operation Manager. In 2007-2008, he worked in mining supervision at KGHM Polska Miedź S.A.’s "Lubin" Mine. From 2008 to 2016 he worked at the KWK "Murcki-Staszic" mine owned by Katowicki Holding Węglowy S.A. (KHW), where, among other things, he worked as Chief Mining Engineer and, since 2015, as Technical Director of this mine. Since July 2016, working as the Chief Engineer at KHW, he participated in the preparations associated with the transfer of KWK "Śląsk" and KWK "Wieczorek” to Spółka Restrukturyzacji Kopalń S.A., and in the merger of KHW with the Polska Grupa Górnicza (PGG). After the incorporation of KHW into the PGG structures, he co-founded the Natural Hazards Department at the Company’s Management Board.

As of June 2017, he was the Director of the Mining Investment Works Department (ZGRI) at PGG. He supervised, among others, the implementation of innovative directional drilling with the use of plunge engines used in the methane drainage from mines, as well as specialized the activity of the Mining Investment Works Department (ZGRI) in mining works required for the Company's mines. From December 2019 to 31 August 2021, he was Vice-President of the Management Board for Technical Matters at TAURON Wydobycie S.A. 
In that period, he supervised and implemented a number of investment projects, important for the future existence of plants in the Company, including completion of the investment of development of the shaft-hoisting system in the “Janina” VI shaft with expansion of level 800 at KWK Janina, starting co-generation engines at KWK Brzeszcze, designing and opening the new “Dąb” area at KWK Sobieski. As a result, this translated into increasing and stabilizing the level of steam coal production of TAURON TWD S.A. 
He has served as Vice-President of the Management Board for Technical and Operational Matters in JSW S.A. since 1 September 2021.
