A very interesting job in which you are responsible for the technical project from start to finish, under the coordination of the project manager. No day is the same and your development does not stand still for a moment. You work together with motivated and dynamic colleagues in a modern environment. We are informal, transparent, healthy and ambitious and we use a flat management structure.

You translate customer requirements into technical specifications, which form the basis for the production of process equipment. During the commercial process you design the technology and estimate costs for our quotations. You are able to check with simple high level calculations whether assumptions in calculation reports are correct.

As an experienced engineer, you carry out [partial] projects independently. This includes carrying out the necessary calculations, checks and analyses with regard to the functionality, manufacturability, assembly, quality assurance and reliability of the design. You set up specifications with which the control and hydraulics / pneumatics are outsourced. You guarantee the quality of your work through interdisciplinary reviews. During the realization of the project you ensure that all documentation during and after completion of the project is complete with regard to the construction file, maintenance, adjustment instructions, controls and product specifications. All this within the set budgets and planning. For larger projects, you supervise a few [hired] engineers or work with and monitor external engineering firms.

You are a skilled technical point of contact for the project customers. You serve as a source of information in case of technical questions that the less experienced engineers cannot solve. You work with suppliers on complex issues.
