Do you want to develop the equipment needed for breeding insects that has never been created before? Are you excited about stepping into a novel food industry? Then you might be our new Senior Design Engineer!
Do you do pioneering daily?
The goal is to roll-out several production facilities worldwide in the upcoming years. We make this possible with an engineering team within Protix which is multidisciplinary by nature. To make the roll-out possible, specific equipment needs to be developed from concept to end use. As Senior Design Engineer you will be part of the equipment development team. The equipment development team is responsible for the design and engineering of state-of-the-art industrial insect rearing equipment and machines suitable for the next generation insect rearing facilities.
Does this sound like you?
You enjoy the process of developing equipment projects from concept to realization. You find a challenge in continuously improving existing equipment through rapid learning cycles. You are excited about engaging in a novel industry; the sustainable high-grade insect production on industrial scale.
System thinking and solving complex problems is what gets you excited. You are responsible for the conceptual design and realization of core equipment designs. For this you have ample experience in project management. You have experience in the early phases of concept development to test feasibility as well as the practical experience in realizing the concepts. Abstract thinking and developing high level vision on practical solutions is what you are looking for but you also like the diverse work that comes with being responsible for the whole process.
Together with the research and development team you define the milestones that need to support the equipment project goals.
Working within Protix is an excellent opportunity to excel both personally and professionally in a fast- paced entrepreneurial and sustainable environment. You will work closely with the project engineering team and other disciplines in Protix like R&D and Operations.
