  • Develop relevant new test methodology and equipment together with cell design and engineering team.
  • Develop working procedures and structures for the test lab team.
  • Drive continuous improvement and development of methodology and technology.
  • Provide technical expertise, guidance and training to junior staff and technicians.

Skills & Requirements

We are looking for you who have an eye for detail, enjoy working with both hard- and software, and have an interest for larger datasets and coding new test protocols, while at the same time enjoys the hands-on work and the challenge of building up and developing a battery testing lab. As a person you are organized, can manage your time well, don’t shy back from perfecting hands-on work routines, have excellent troubleshooting skills and can work well both in a team and independently.

You are a passionate Test Engineer who takes ownership and is eager to collaborate with others to achieve excellent results.

  • A degree in electrical or mechanical engineering or other relevant University degree.

  • Experience with DC electronics, including test & measurement hardware and EE lab best practices.
  • Programming experience and interest in C, Python, or a similar programming language.
  • Excellent troubleshooting skills. Self-driven and passionate to own and solve issues with test equipment as they arise through a data-driven approach.
  • Experience in installation, commissioning and acceptance testing of equipment is a plus.
  • Experience in developing processes, standards, procedures and documentation in an efficient way.
  • Strong technical leadership and coordinating skills in a highly flexible and frequently changing environment.
