Over deze vacature

Are you an automotive engineer with (preferably) a completed master degree, experience in the field of testing and specific knowledge/ experience in the field of noise, vibration and harshness? Then this is the ideal position for you!


The most important activities in the Component Testing department relate to the (subject) areas of service life and strength of structural and driving parts, vibrations (noise and comfort), occurring loads in/on vehicle components under practical conditions, correlation between test conditions and practice and crash resistance of structures.

As a Test Engineer you are responsible for independently setting up, preparing, conducting and reporting tests (tests, measurements) carried out on test installations designed by you or with test vehicles. The tests to be carried out are usually part of a total test program that has been drawn up for a development project and will have to be realized within the project conditions. You are then responsible for the entire organization of a number of tests, including determining the test or measurement programs.

The test results must be assessed with regard to product requirements formulated in a development project and with regard to standard “Sign Off” requirements or requirements, which you must derive yourself from a description of the practical deployment of the vehicle at customers.

In this position you not only assess the structures for their properties, but you also provide the quantified information that a constructor needs when creating his design. In addition, you advise the constructors from your field in choosing the tests. The tests will therefore fit the test program to the maximum and contribute to the reduction of risks.

You support the total development process with initiative and decisive action in the event of imminent problems. When you identify a shortcoming of the designs, you go in search of suitable solutions in consultation with the design managers.
