Your Mission
As a member of the robot engineering team, you will play a crucial role in designing, building and testing prototypes, as well as setting up and deploying test benches. Your work will include developing mechanical and mechatronic systems, creating technical drawings, 3D printing components and prototyping and testing them. You will support the team in daily operations and contribute to various stages of mechanical and robotic module development, assembly, and testing. While your expertise in mechanical engineering is essential, having skills in programming and basic electrical knowledge will be valuable. You will also have the chance to further develop these skills as part of your role.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Designing, constructing, building and testing prototypes
  • Making technical drawings and communicating them with suppliers
  • Designing, building, wiring and programming test benches
  • Designing and 3D printing mechanical components
  • Assembling robotic modules (e.g. motors, endeffectors)
  • Creating partlists and handing them over to production
  • Supporting day-to-day team operations
Your Profile
  • Technical background in mechanical engineering, preferably a completed Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Robotics, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or any related technical field
  • Hands-on experience with mechanical design and prototyping
  • Proficiency in technical drawing and CAD software (preferably Solidworks or similar) is necessary
  • Basic knowledge of programming and electrical systems
  • Experience with 3D printing technology is a plus
  • Demonstrated history of working in fast-paced, technical environments
