Does this fit you? Then you could be our next Electrical Engineer!

What will you be doing?

As part of the Hardware R&D team, our Medior/Senior Electrical Engineer will work on electronics development and will perform testing activities within projects for our new Ultimaker products. You will be creating test setups and doing research in order to gain and share knowledge needed for product development and continuous improvement of the 3D printing process.

What will your team look like?

You will report to the Hardware Manager and you will work closely with your fellow Electrical Engineers. You will interact with our Software Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, and Material and Process Engineers in interdisciplinary project teams, guided by a Project Manager.

You will also work with colleagues from Product Management (for customer inputs and issue tracking), Supply Chain, Manufacturing and Quality Control (for manufacturing and quality inputs).
