You will collaborate with the suppliers and be part of a cross-functional NOVO team to deliver the detailed design of cutting-edge equipment and bring it on speed. You will also train and guide new process engineers and support functions how to work with the equipment. This position will allow you to gain a deep understanding of a cutting-edge battery cell manufacturing equipment design and help to make it ready for the next challenge!

  • Lead design reviews and FMEAs with suppliers and approve machine design concepts, technical drawings and documentation
  • Provide feedback and guidance to suppliers to ensure equipment quality, technical specifications and CE safety standards are met
  • Develop and issue DOEs and schedule process and equipment trials at supplier sites as well at NOVO site
  • Lead the definition and release of standards for manufacturing processes based on the trials and lessons learned performed on the way
  • Own and lead commissioning activities on site and support handover to production
  • Actively participating and sharing all relevant information within a cross functional team on a regular basis

Your background

  • BSc or MSc degree in mechanical, electrical or chemical engineering
