Your phone rings; it's your colleague from the factory in France. He enthusiastically reports that the first results are very positive. That means your technical solution works! And that the machine line now runs even better. Your colleague also tells you that the technical department is very happy with the manual you made for revisions: "clear and therefore very efficient". With a smile on your face, you hang up and tell the Lead Engineer that the project is fully finished. As a Mechanical Engineer, projects like these are why you do it. Why? Because you are truly challenged on a technical level. After you've worked everything out, you come up with solutions that work – and that they're very happy with at the plant. It also makes you proud that you can contribute to a brighter future. Because thanks to your machine lines, millions of sustainable packages are produced every day. 

About the position
Due to tremendous growth, we are looking to further expand our plant in Valencia, Spain, and therefore we are looking for an experienced Mechanical Engineer. An engineer who likes to look at the details and is creative in coming up with the right solutions. In this role, you will actively collaborate with the Lead Engineer and tackle projects together. You and your colleagues in the team work on the quality of the machine lines and develop solutions based on customer requirements. In addition, your department actively collaborates with colleagues at Huhtamaki Fiber Technology in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands. You have regular meetings and you visit the Fiber Center in Leeuwarden every now and then. 

Curious about the tasks you will be performing? 

  • You will design and create drawing packages of machines and components.
  • You do reviews with colleagues involved in your project. 
  • You will have weekly consultations on current projects.
  • You devise solutions to issues you receive. Think about the modification and optimization of current machine lines.
  • You regularly have brainstorming sessions with colleagues. You think it's important to try to come up with even better ideas together. 
  • Creating manuals for revisions, new developments and process improvements; leave that to you. 
  • You incorporate feedback into drawing packages so that improvements can be made to machines.
  • You design and discuss new developments with your own team, but also with other departments, and if necessary with customers. 
  • You advise and support technical solutions for new machines, revisions and process improvements. 

Where are you going to work?
We are Huhtamaki Fiber Technology, the international R&D centre and machine line developer of the major packaging company Huhtamaki. With passion, we develop machine lines that make it possible to produce sustainable packaging for, among others, the food industry. We have a modern test centre, a pilot plant and various other departments under one roof. And it's all about innovation, sustainable innovation! Not only because our customers and end users from the global retail market demand it every day, but also because we ourselves strive for a world with sustainable packaging materials. A good example is our Fresh project, in which we developed fully compostable packaging for ready-to-eat meals. And the best thing is: this packaging results in 82% less CO2 emissions and no plastic waste. Making a difference, that is what we are proud of!

  • Do you have several years of experience as a Mechanical Engineer within the mechanical engineering area? 
  • Are you fluent in English? 
  • Do you get energy from, together with a team, translating ideas into technical solutions?
