  • Minimum 5 years of experience as a product development engineer.
  • Run multiple projects simultaneously in an agile manner and can demonstrate how you effectively report out and engage stakeholders.

  • Solid product development experience, from development to manufacturing and production, ideally in a fast paced environment.
  • University degree, ideally Mechatronics, Electronics or Mechanical Engineering.
