What is your role?

Driving quality for our customers through design verification & validation

Over the past years Lely has introduced a number of new to market robotics solutions and has built a reputation as a very innovative and reliable supplier to dairy farmers. We are now in the situation where we have a global and significant installed base and still many innovations in development.
The Lely organization is quickly growing and has a strong ambition to increase pace. Our customers expect that new products live up to the standards of our existing products, which have become mature through years of service and experience. Newly introduced products have to mature faster and the tolerance for reliability issues while producing is lower.

This places a growing emphasis on the way we test our new products before releasing them to the field. We have a group of specialized testers that develop test protocols & test equipment in close cooperation with the product (design) engineers. Due to our growth, we are now looking to expand this team.

Your role is very versatile. One day you might be designing a test rig. Which you will later build in the workshop. Another day you will be in the field collecting feedback from our customer the farmer on his experience with a new product. A third day you will perform Root Cause analysis of a failed sample from a test you have been running.  You will be working in a multidisciplinary project team with the product engineers of mechanical electrical and software disciplines. You need to be able to bridge the gap between disciplines. To make sure the performance of the complete product is safeguarded.

Main responsibilities: You will design and build test tooling, write test plans and execute the tests. Finally you will write the test report and release advice.


What is your experience?

  • Bachelor degree in Mechanical engineering, Mechatronics, Industrial engineering, Electronics or similar.
  • Hands-on approach to problem solving
  • Wide technical view and interest in mechatronics systems
  • Knowledge of Labview, Python, statistical engineering, reliability engineering and FMEA is an advantage
  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to present your arguments in a convincing manner.
  • Fluent in Dutch and English.
  • Driver license B.

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;
  • 35 holidays per year; 
  • the tastiest coffee you will ever drink, courtesy of our barista;
  • time for fun: table football, volleyball and a basketball court.
