Over de functie

Your challenge:

The Packaging Developer provides design and development support by developing structural packaging for consumer products sold globally. The packaging work concerns mainly consumer packaging and transportation packaging, where the consumer packaging requires alignment with the marketing team, e.g. translating marketing requirements into structural packaging requirements. The transportation packaging needs to be configured to suit the supply chain and factories. The aim is to develop structural designs that are appealing to the consumer and at the same time functionally sound and cost effective. All packaging development activities are executed in close cooperation with the production facilities. 

Key Responsibilities: 

As Packaging Developer, you are responsible for die cut creation in CAD, writing the specification, making prototypes and to organize the packaging release (alignment with the factory and organizing packaging tests locally). The Packaging Developer is responsible for: 

  • Scheduling the packaging part of a project as part of the project team 
  • For smaller projects, the packaging developer will be working more independently, but will still align and plan its activities with the packaging lead, project lead, quality, purchasing, factory, etc. 
  • The packaging developer is involved in artwork development, which is done by an external partner. Understanding of packaging development, printing, manufacturing and assembly process is key.


We are looking for: 

  • Analytical and geometric problem solving ability is required as part of activities in providing packaging specifications on carton dimensions and weights 
  • Secure the technical product documentation, in particular the data related to packaging dimensions and logistical data. Tasks would be to upload this data to the PLM system Windchill. 
  • Knowledge of standard packaging materials like paper/carton, plastics, etc. 
  • Experience with Artios CAD, Cape palletizing software and Windchill is preferred. 
  • Because you will work with factories, suppliers and innovation sites across the globe, strong communication skills are required, both written and oral. 
  • Bachelor or Master Degree in Packaging Science or related technical discipline like Industrial Design Engineering.
