About this vacancy

Do you feel that true innovation is ignited with a great idea, is fuelled by strong engineering and is only successful when a product is introduced in the market at the right time, the right cost and meets the customer’s expectations on quality levels?

Building on our extensive experience, we develop robust industrial assembly processes for smart micro devices or components.

This helps us to live up to our commitment to our customers: “We accelerate your innovation”.

Can you manage challenging stakeholder needs for both innovative start-ups and well-established key industry players and play an essential role in creating a competitive advantage and improved time-to-market for them?
