What is your role?

You will be the electronics expert within a Product Development project team, working on a particular Lely product on a dedicated basis. Think in terms of products such as milking robots, automated feeding systems, barn products and their associated management systems. When it comes to movement, you know the difference between unloaded driving and the power required to lift a load of cattle feed, for example. You will be working with highly diversified electronic systems ranging from power electronics and sensors to cameras, valves etc. You will give shape to your idea either as a design or on a requirement basis. You will be supported by our suppliers, who will produce prototypes on the basis of your designs. Thereafter, you will build your own testing set-up in our well-appointed workshop (also known as our 'technical playground'). Once you are satisfied that the product works, you will deploy one of our test farms to conduct thorough testing in practice.

In your department, you will be collaborating with no fewer than 250 engineers, all of whom are exclusively involved in the improvement of existing Lely products and the devising and testing of new solutions. Within your team, you will be working with a mechanical engineer and an embedded software specialist. You will liaise actively with suppliers, the Procurement department and test farms, and you will be involved throughout the chain, from the initial idea up to and including the final product.

What is your experience?

genuine electronics specialist with extensive expertise in the various systems and associated supplier markets. You are definitely both a thinker and a doer. You can communicate effortlessly with colleagues from other departments and with external suppliers.

  • You have completed a higher vocational study in Electrical Engineering, Electronics or Computer Science.
  • You have at least 3 years experience, preferably in machine construction or in one of the following industries: automotive, oil and gas or offshore.
  • You are experienced in outsourcing.

What do we offer you?

A job for a true inventor, at a company driven by innovation. You will see your ideas come to life as they leave the factory to our customer, the dairy farmer. At the end you will contribute to a sustainable way of farming. 

We offer..

  • flexibility in terms of working times and conditions;
  • variety one day you will be at the workshop, another day on the farm and the next day you will work at the main office;
  • the space and freedom to innovate, construct new ideas and tinker in our workshop;
  • 40 holidays per year; 
  • the tastiest coffee you will ever drink, courtesy of our barista;
