Your job

    The successful candidate will manage a team of Design Engineers for Custom Product Development to ensure that all standards and specifications are met. As Head of Product Development your main tasks are:

    • Managing and leading a team of Design Engineers which is responsible for the area of Custom Product Development.
    • Providing technical support to the business development, onsite engineering teams and other internal departments.
    • Working collaboratively and negotiate with key stakeholders to facilitate delivery and compliance with the engineering strategy.
    • Developing the team environment with engineers and establish quality and reliability standards.
    • Setting department objectives and monitor ongoing progress and performance.
Your profile
    • You have a higher technical education (HTL, FH, University) in the area of electronics, electrical engineering or plastics/mechanical engineering.
    • You have long-standing experience in
      product development or the lighting industry.

    • If you are full of innovative, technical solutions, you can prioritize tasks correctly and you still work very effectively and efficiently under time pressure, then you are the perfect replacement for us! We look forward to receiving your application!

    The law obliges us to specify a salary here: in line with the collective agreement, this amounts to at least € 48.699,28/p.a. for a 38½-hour working week. However, because neither you nor we are satisfied with minimum standards, we promise you that it will be more. How much more depends on how good you are.
