Job Description


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,..).


Your responsibilities?

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.

- 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.
