Introduction to the job

Are you an engineer who thinks and acts on system level? Would you like to continuously improvethe performance of the machine? Do you have a broad technical interest combined with good communication skills? Do you want to use your technical knowledge to define and facilitate the most efficient and effective test and integration strategy? Then the job of a System Test Engineer is just for you!

Role and responsibilities

The DE (Development & Engineering) P&I (Performance & Integration) System Integration department is responsible for the integration, verification and release of system configurations such that these can be manufactured and installed within the required quality and can also be maintained in the field. We supportBusiness Line, Manufacturing and Customer service to achieve customer satisfaction.

defining and driving the system integration of new products/options for full functional machine and performance qualification within time to market target. In the position of System Test Engineer you will be part of the team that defines the integration strategy and gives an advise of the quality and risks still left after the integration of integrates a wide variety of hardware, software and other deliveries into one system that performs at a the specified level.
