Your mission

As our Senior Mechatronics Engineer (m/f/d) you are the designated person to talk to regarding all topics related to the construction and implementation of test bench and product issues in the field of industrial automation. You will take a leading position in our Hardware Development Team and continue to build it together with one of the Co-Founders. It is your mission to drive our development in the field of mechatronics and to take over more and more leadership as the team grows.

  • You shape and develop a growing team of engineers in the fields of mechatronics, mechanical and electrical engineering; 
  • You take a significant role in implementing development processes according to known standards (e.g. development FMEAs for electronic and mechanical hardware);
  • You work on the design, development, construction and commissioning of mechatronic test benches for handling processes of dimensionally unstable materials (both mechatronic and control side);
  • You define, review and verify component and system requirements according to current industry standards;
  • You coordinate the implementation and/or procurement of mechatronic assemblies for handling solutions in test benches and/or near-series products and implement them together with our Hardware Development Team;
  • You actively support external certification activities.


Your profile

  • You have a university degree or equivalent in mechatronics, electrical engineering or a related technical field;
  • You have at least 4+ years of relevant work experience in mechatronics/automation engineering;
  • You have experience in design, procurement, construction, commissioning and functional validation in mechatronic product or test bench development;
  • You have already gained experience in project management and ideally have already led a team (or you are in the starting blocks to take on your first leadership role); 
  • You are familiar with the relevant regulations and standards in the development of mechatronic products/test benches in the field of industrial automation;
  • Confident understanding of functional diagrams, overviews, circuit diagrams, cable layouts for electromechanical assemblies as well as knowledge of EPLAN and programming languages according to IEC 61131-3 is a plus, but not a must;
  • You have a good command of English and German, both written and spoken;
  • Your good understanding of the architecture of mechatronic systems and your system-oriented and structured way of working distinguish you;
  • You like to work hands-on and are not afraid to get your hands dirty.
