  • The responsibilities are multidisciplinary. You will participate in engineering research projects about natural ventilation, safety, thermal insulation, strength, energy performance of buildings and acoustics. You are closely involved in ongoing projects and you realise a number of key projects yourself.
  • You have a close collaboration with experts in these fields (universities, research centers,…) and follow up/coordinate research projects carried out by the external experts. You translate the results/knowledge from these studies into solutions for Reynaers.
  • You work together with the different R&D teams in Belgium and the different foreign subsidiaries.
  • You perform regularly simulations (FEM) and calculations. Some examples:
      • Defining maximum dimensions and weights
      • Design optimization based on acting stresses and displacements
      • Improvement of thermal insulation
      • Estimation and calculation of acoustic performance based on test results
      • Advice about bomb blast and earthquake resistance
  • Is a test needed? Then you organize it and do the follow up. Or even more interesting: you carry out the test yourself (e.g. tensile testing bench) in our Technology Centre.
  • During the different development phases you support the colleagues in the Development team by creatively thinking along with them and giving advice or solutions.
  • You spread the knowledge within the Reynaers group to support the sales of our products.
  • You follow market trends (low energy buildings, ventilation, FEM simulation, digitalization, process automation...) and make proposals for engineering projects.
  • You regularly follow training courses, both internally and externally, so that you are always up to date with new developments and technologies.

Who are you?

 

  • You have a master degree in engineering.
  • You have a strong interest in everything that has to do with simulations, energy, acoustics, strength, automation of processes, …
  • You can work analytical and independent. You put great importance to both theoretical calculations as well as practical testing.
  • You are a fluent communicator, both in Dutch and English, and a dedicated team player.
  • You do not lose track of your objectives and are excellent in finding solutions when challenges appear.
  • You are outstanding in project and time management. You manage to handle different tasks.
  • You look forward to an international working environment.

What can we offer you?

 

  • A pleasant and dynamic working atmosphere with a new challenge every day.
  • The opportunity to leave your mark on the future, with a socially responsible and sustainable company that draws the map of innovation and digital technology.
  • The opportunity to develop yourself and follow professional training courses.
  • A competitive salary and numerous extra-legal benefits, in exchange for your expertise and commitment.
  • A mobility plan that allows you to move easily, healthily and green to work.
