Our projects include the design, development and production of yokeless axial flux motors and generators. This is new technology which delivers 3 to 4 times more power for the same weight compared with traditional motors. As a fast growing startup team, we are currently working hard to make this new technology an essential part of future electric vehicles (electric cars, electric aircraft,..).
This is a new role in the company so you have the opportunity to have a significant impact on the R&D development process of our motors.
- In collaboration with our prototyping engineers, you prepare a test plan for the motor prototypes.
- You define and execute test procedures to verify prototype motors. For this, you work together with our R&D team members and our customers.
- You develop and improve test setups and test benches.
- Part of the job is programming and parametrisation of inverters that control the motors.
- You process the acquired testing data and discuss the reports with the R&D team for further design improvements.
Who are we looking for?
- You have a Bachelor or Master Degree in Electromechanical engineering or equivalent by experience.
- You have affinity with testing powertrain systems.
- Ideally experience with high power inverters.
- You are a fast learner and you can work meticulously.
- You are fluent in English (verbal and written).
- You are not afraid of a startup environment where hands-on activities are crucial.
- You can work autonomously and take initiative.
- You can work at our office in Belgium (Gent area) but you are also open for travel (tests at customer sites).
- Minimum work experience of 5 years is preferred.
- Two years previous work experience as a test or validation engineer is a plus.
What can we offer you?
- A full-time position in an inspiring high-tech environment.
- Magnax is a fast growing company. This means that you'll have a lot of impact on the future of the company and your own career.
- You'll have flexibility in terms of working hours.
- An attractive salary package with extralegal benefits.
