We are looking for: Manufacturability Engineer who will strengthen our Operations team.
Ultimate goal of this role is to validate each new Production Order and make it ready to be released to production. To do so it is vitally important to make sure that all ordered parts are manufacturable within estimated time and budget and all appropriate technical requirements/ drawings/ CAD 3D models are cohesive and coherent. If issues identified this role is entitled to review price/deadlines, adjust requirements and renegotiate it with customers. Therefore it expects both extensive mechanical engineering expertise and fluent German and English (both oral and written).
Professional experience required: 3+ years
