Product Engineer water systems and sensors

  • De Lier, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands
€3,250 - €4,250 per monthProduction & Logistics

Job description

Your future ecosystem

The water and sensor teams are merging to enhance synergy, with an opportunity to bring new perspectives and ideas. The team consists of systems and devices experts, including a Product Specialist, Drafter, Chemical Process Engineer, Tech Lead for sensors, and a Product Owner. This diverse team operates autonomously, managing their own portfolios for water and sensor products. The water proposition is a crucial part of our organization which makes this open position an important vacancy to fill.

How you add value

This role is pivotal in achieving team goals and enhancing the functionality and quality of our products. It involves defining functional specifications and technical requirements, ensuring they meet necessary standards, and translating rough ideas from the team into concrete designs, followed by executing tests, and documenting all product related data.

You will be responsible for developing new products and modifying existing ones, specifically designing water and sensor products, improving existing systems, and validating compliance with set requirements. Post-design and construction support is also crucial, including redesigning and maintaining the existing portfolio and addressing support queries, often from international clients.

Additionally, the role requires the approval and validation of technical drawings before production or engineering stages, developing 3D concepts, and ensuring prototype accuracy. Project management skills are essential, as the engineer will independently manage small projects, coordinate with the right stakeholders, maintain self-sufficiency, and collaborate with production, business, and sales teams as well as external stakeholders.
