We are looking to hire an engineer with passion and engagement for development? Are you interested in working with mechanical systems such as energy, hydraulic or rescue systems? Then we have an offer you can´t refuse!

Your role

As a mechanical systems engineer you get the opportunity to work with submarines through the entire life cycle, which means everything from requirement capture and definition, system design and verification. You translate the customer's requirements and needs into technical requirements and system architecture. From a business perspective, you define the right solution in terms of cost, time and performance. You work closely with other internal disciplines, subcontractors and the customer. You continuously support the design engineers during the project phase, are involved in the preparation and review of design documentation and you take part in the final commissioning. The work is done in smaller project teams with skilled and fantastic colleagues. You report to the Manager for Mechanical Systems.
