As System Designer Mechanics you are, together with colleagues from other disciplines, responsible for defining, designing and realizing precision mechanical constructions for high-tech mechatronic modules. You are involved with the design, ranging from specifications and validation while using analyses and calculations to support your design.

The trajectory starts with developing a statement of requirements together with the client. This program is then carefully translated into the technical specifications. You are responsible for the concept, design, realization and integration of the mechanical architecture, taking into account the technical and functional limitations and testability.

After that, you will research theoretical models and principles and apply them to the project. You are, together with the rest of the project team, responsible for delivering a working system with the right functionalities.


  • A BSc. or MSc. in Mechanical Engineering, preferably with several years of relevant experience (in the high tech industry), design experience with NX team center
  • Skills in and affinity with developing precision mechanical systems, with a keen eye for constructability of your design (DFX/DFC knowledge, design in vacuum)
  • Excellent analytical skills, using different methods and approaches (low cost design), taking the right steps in the design of a complete system and using your broad knowledge to offer a total solution
  • Creative, driven and a strong communicator (with various disciplines and levels in the organization)
  • Able to motivate team members and to guide them if necessary


-Analytical system thinker (how do you start with the design of a system, what will you take into account, what's your experience in system design)

-Experience with construction and using this knowledge while designing: can my idea be constructed (tolerances, components, etc)?

-Looking for a team-player: pro-active, retrieving the necessary information from colleagues, thinking with the team on a system level (from concept phase to defining the work packages)

-Solid technical foundation (how do you work out the concept phase, feasibility study, knowing and explaining what you are going to deliver)


  • A wide variety in High-tech projects
  • The opportunity and freedom to come up with original and creative solutions
  • Development from the first idea to a fully operational product
  • Shifts in technologies, markets and projects make for a very diverse job
  • Direct cooperation with your customer and our partners


Our client is a partner for high tech development projects in machine building for diverse markets, such as the semiconductor, medical and printing industry. Making the impossible possible is occasionally necessary to satisfy the customers’ needs. We do this together, within our team of enthusiastic specialists in software, electronics, mechatronics and mathematics. Are you a mechanical engineer who like to go one step further? Are you willing to make the most out of your own and others’ capacities? Are you looking for a well-structured organization with a personal working atmosphere?
