Introduction to the job

Are you gifted at managing and coordinating several projects at the same time? Do you like to work in a multi-disciplinary team? Do you like to advise a share your ideas about the best integral packaging solutions within a team? Do you like to be the binding factor between different stakeholders? Do you like to work on packaging developments to protect the quality of parts, modules and tools during shipment and storage? Then the job Packaging coordinator might be the right match for you!

Role and responsibilities

As packaging coordinator, you will be the spider in web: you will be working in the packaging team of the Handling and Transport Technology (H&TT) department. The packaging team is responsible for relevant and suitable system, service and tool packaging, all to ensure the required quality of our modules and parts during shipment or storage.

You will be responsible for collecting the list of requirements (packaging performance specification) for the product to be packed, which includes a packaging proposal.

All these requirements need to be well-substantiated and agreed upon at a cross-sectoral level. The packaging developments are outsourced to an external party, and your task is to coordinate the project from the first design review until the final implementation release for volume.

As packaging coordinator you'll:

  • Determine and align on packaging requirements cross-sectional

  • Monitor if all (packaging) requirements are met

  • Assure that the packaging design complies with the H&TT strategy

  • Ensure that the required business processes are aligned cross sectoral and can be executed

Be usually responsible for 15 to 25 projects:

  • Act as the first point of contact for projects and co-developers

  • Keep supervision of your individual (outsourced) projects

  • Monitor and ensure the planning for each individual project

  • Assure quality standards are met

Education and experience

There are no constraints on working experience. The following experiences are a plus:

  • Broad technical knowledge and interest in mechanics, safety, ergonomics and logistics

  • Some years of experience and affinity with packaging

  • Working in multidisciplinary design teams


Working at the cutting edge of tech, you’ll always have new challenges and new problems to solve – and working together is the only way to do that. You won’t work in a silo. Instead, you’ll be part of a creative, dynamic work environment where you’ll collaborate with supportive colleagues. There is always space for creative and unique points of view. You’ll have the flexibility and trust to choose how best to tackle tasks and solve problems.

To thrive as packaging coordinator, you’ll need the following skills:

  • Communicative: make facts, ideas and/or opinions clear to others, by using clear and correct language, gestures and non-verbal communication (adapt the subject to the listener)

  • Convincing others: to get approval for plans, concepts and/or proposals

  • Organized: determine goals and priorities in an effective way

  • Plan and pro-actively monitor the necessary time, actions and action holders to achieve goals

  • Collaborative: contribute to a joint result through optimal coordination between your own qualities and interests and those of a group or your colleagues

  • Decisive: dare to take decisions or actions, even when not all knowledge is available with regards to the consequences and/or alternatives

  • Fluency English in word and in writing
