The Sustaining department offers engineering support to operations, supply chain and customers. As a Sustaining Engineer you solve bottlenecks that arise during the production phase. In consultation with the team leader of the relevant production unit you determine what the best technical solution is. You also provide the necessary stress calculations, to demonstrate that the chosen solution meets the applicable strength requirements. Initiating actions to further improve the production process or product design are also part of your job; you work in particular with the production specialists, the representative of the quality department and the design and stress engineers within the engineering community. For aircraft damage that occurs In-Service, you investigate the repair possibilities; record these in repair design, with associated stress calculations.
What do we look for?
You have a BSc or MSc degree in aerospace, mechanical or industrial design engineering. You have several years of experience in designing and calculating metal and / or composite structures.
You perform well under high pressure and excel in a very dynamic environment. You are able to work independently and you have an eye for details without losing the overview. You are tenacious, self-propelling and you have a good knowledge of the English language.
