Michael: You definitely need to have completed a technical education (higher technical college, university of applied sciences or technology) in logistics, supply chain management, automation technology, mechanics, mechatronics or a similar field. Relevant experience in intralogistics, logistics or industrial warehouse system construction is also an advantage, especially when it comes to working with our existing installations.
As an international company, we prefer to communicate with our customers in English, so it’s important that your English is up to the task. As a mechanical engineer, you do more than just communicate with our customers from your desk; you also get to visit upcoming retrofit systems and will spend about 10 % of your time on business trips, which is an exciting way to shake up your office routine.
Since we plan retrofit projects together with our customers and our functional departments, this job will involve managing deadlines and some stressful periods. You should be able to keep your cool and set priorities. Mechanical engineers should also be good communicators, show initiative and have lots of ideas. You serve as the link between sales and development, which means your input is key for deciding on what the next step of a successful retrofit should be.
