What is your role?

You are the Electronics expert in the Product Development project team, which is dedicated to one Lely product. Imagine milking robots, automatic feed systems and the accompanying management systems. If something needs to move, you know how to select the solution which has the capability to get feed or cows in motion. You work with various electronic systems, ranging from power electronics, sensors, cameras, valves and more. You will pour your ideas into a design or requirements. Our suppliers will assist you in this process. They will build the prototypes of your design. Subsequently, you will construct your own test setup in our extensive workshop (which people also like to call our technical playground). After this, you can rely upon our testing farms where you will test everything in the field.

At the department, you will work together with 150 other engineers that dedicate themselves to improving existing Lely solutions and come up with and test new solutions. In your team, you will work together with a mechanical engineer and an embedded software specialist. You will often interface with suppliers, the purchase department and the testing farms. You are involved with the entire chain, from the initial idea to the final product.

As you are a senior in the team, you will also coach some more junior colleagues, think along with the management about the roadmaps and processes.

What is your experience?

You are a specialist in the field of electronics and a polymath in terms of the various systems and their accompanying supplier markets. You are a true thinker and doer. You communicate easily with colleagues of other departments and external suppliers.

  • You have a higher vocational education (HBO) degree in Electrical Techniques, Electronics or Computer Science;
  • You have at least 3 years of experience, preferably in the engineering, automotive, oil & gas or offshore industry;
  • You have some experience with outsourcing;
  • EU-citizenship is required.

What do we offer you?

A job for a true inventor, at a company driven by innovation. In the span of two years you will see your ideas come to life as they leave the factory, upon which they will be used by dairy farms.

  • Flexibility in terms of working times and working location;
  • 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.
  • The tastiest coffee you will ever drink, courtesy of our barista;
  • Time for fun: table football, volleyball and a basketball court.
