  • Ensure timely, high-quality inputs to designers, generic and detailed
  • Lead Design for assembly (DfA) between production and design
  • Deliver activities and tasks for NPI (new product introduction) projects
  • Be part of sub-module cross functional teams
  • Responsible for technical solutions review (design and systemic approach) of change notifications before implementation



  • You have an Mechanical engineering degree or other relevant education
  • You have 3-5 years relevant experience within either design, production, or other relevant areas
  • You have a good broad technical foundation, and the ability to pick up new knowledge fast
  • Experience within other large corporate organizations is preferable

It is a plus if you have:

  • Some flexibility for being at different locations, e.g. Ringkøbing, Lindø and etc.
  • Experience within other large corporate organizations
  • Danish language skill is welcomed and would be helpful in daily communication work



  • You are disciplined with respect to structures and agreements
  • You keep deadlines and have quality in focus
  • You are able to speak up if something is not right!
  • You take the ownership and drive changes if needed
  • You question the way we work and direct the change if needed
  • You have a good understanding of complex organizational setups, to efficiently communicate with your colleagues and relevant stakeholders
  • You have good communication skills and are fluent in English (speaking and writing)


What we offer

In our team you can expect to find a working culture that is friendly and informal, but with clear motivation and ambitions. We place a solid emphasis on co-operation, transparency, and a healthy work/life balance. We take pride in each-other and, as such, you can expect to work with very skilled colleagues in an inspiring work environment where collaboration and enthusiasm are the key motivation factors in our daily work - both internally in the team but also with the rest of our stakeholders. As part of a global, high-quality organization, we also offer opportunities to grow and develop, both professionally and personally.
