Your responsibilities?

  • Assist the Sales department with technical support throughout the (pre)-sales life cycle. This means that you help customers with advice to apply our motor portfolio in their project while considering related systems (drives, battery, integration with gearboxes, etc.).

  • Coordinate with R&D to evaluate the customer requested specs (RFI’s and RFQ’s) and package a Magnax product offering into a winning proposal.

  • Minimum 3 years of experience in automotive/technical engineering.

  • Strong at communication (verbal and written), time management and coordination.

  • A task oriented independent who can abide by tight timelines to get the job accomplished to a high standard.

  • A critical thinker who uses logic and reasoning to identify the strengths and weaknesses of alternative solutions, conclusions or approaches to problems.

  • Ability to collaborate and work effectively with cross-functional teams.

  • Strong technical background (electrical or mechanical engineering).

  • Fluent in English, both verbal and written.

  • Good technical writing skills.

  • Willingness to travel as required.

  • You are not afraid of a startup/scale-up environment where a healthy mix of product engineering- and hands-on activities are crucial. 

What can we offer?

You will be joining an ambitious and fast growing organization at a significant moment in our history. If you match the job description and you have a passion for state-of-art technology, we’d love to hear from you.

At Magnax, you can expect:
