Ask me a question!

As a Mechatronics Technician, you will be the key figure in building our automated Material Handling machines during the nominal phase.

We are an emerging Business Unit focused on maximising automation in the fast-growing logistics sector. With our existing expertise in developing automated welding and handling robots, we have the necessary experience to be successful in the logistics market. Your help is essential to actually turn this experience into functioning machines.

As a Mechatronics Mechanic, you are responsible for the careful assembly of electrical and mechanical parts, components, sensors, cabling and (sub-)systems. You know how to turn this into a high-quality assembly process, in which the machines for which you are responsible come to life. In the final phase of the project, you work with the team to ensure flawless transport and successful commissioning on site at our international customers. An independent role within a multidisciplinary project team. This position also offers you the opportunity to progress to Senior Mechanic!

This will be your day

7:30 You will start the day with a morning meeting at the project. Here you will discuss the work and challenges for the working day, after which you will get to work building machines with the project team.
11:00 Time to start preparing for an external job! After a brief consultation with the project team, you start collecting the required materials and prepare them for shipment.
13:00 After your break, you discover a problem that is going to hamper progress. You discuss this with your Chief Engineer or Project Coordinator. You make a ticket and describe the problem in it, then follow it up.
16:00 The day flies by and it's time to tidy up. You ensure a tidy workplace so you can start the next working day fresh.
