Introduction to the job

Do you take the lead in driving complex mechatronic systems projects to a successful delivery? Do you have the technical background to lead a multidisciplinary team of mechatronics, mechanics, thermal, electronics and software professionals? To lead the design and improvement projects of our modules in co-operation with one of our key suppliers? Do you see the big picture without missing important details? Then we want to get in touch with you.

As project manager you will manage a group of highly professional engineers with academic backgrounds and many years’ experience in the industry.
