What will your mission be?
As a member of the Engineering team, you will create the production facilities needed for our new insect production plants opening in the coming years.

These responsibilities cover all phases of development, from brainstorming and evaluating concepts through troubleshooting and support on the facility floor. This involves creating facility designs as well as the technical responsibility for future facility builds (and maintaining an overview of these technical aspects). In lead (senior) positions, you will manage the budget and timeline of your own projects, and generate appropriate technical documentation (e.g. manuals, drawings, diagrams).

You can make a real difference by streamlining the project execution process, translating the conceptual facility design into manageable work packages, optimally selecting and guiding our subcontractors, and maintaining & guarding the interfaces between the different work packages.

  • Experience in technical writing (specifications, test plans etc.) is an advantage
  • Experience in contract management is an advantage
Skills and competencies 
  • Results-driven and long-term focus, you keep the bigger picture in mind
  • You work best in multidisciplinary teams
  • You connect and communicate your (new) ideas easily at different levels (also with stakeholders and suppliers)

  • Excellent analytical skills 
What do we promise?

  • You get the opportunity to work 2 or 3 days from home 
  • A varied job where you can make the difference within a driven and inspiring team

  • Do you come by bike? Then you will also receive an allowance of €0.19 per km. Public transport is also fully reimbursed.
