·        set up the documentation needed for production, customer applications and service provision;

·        contribute to the testing of the designs and the development of tools for this;

·        coordinate the internal and external communication with suppliers and colleagues of, among others, Product Development, Production and Sales & Marketing;

·        ensure you are and remain up to date regarding new innovations in the market.

We also arrange and pay for your flight for the job interview. If it all works out, we’ll apply for your visa and help you find accommodation and, for example, open your bank account in the Netherlands.
