in Kortrijk

At Magnax, we support the global transition to electric transportation by innovating in THE next-generation electric motor and generator technology. Our subsidiary Traxial focuses on ground e-mobility use cases.

Your responsibilities

Primary duties include:

Solution development

  • Create technical- and commercial proposals and support business development in the commercial process.

Who are we looking for?

Our ideal candidate is an engineer who is very familiar with the technical requirements of the aerospace industry, has experience in developing aerospace products and program management. He/she perfectly bridges the commercial and technical sides of the aerospace business, exhibits a can-do attitude, and approaches work with vigor and determination.

  • M.S in Aerospace-, Mechanical-, Systems Engineering or related fields.

  • Previous experience in the development and certification of aircraft (propulsion) systems.

  • Experience with New Product Development processes.

  • Solid product development experience and program management skills.

  • Strong analytical skills.

  • Proficient in MS Office & CRM software.

  • Willing to frequently travel post-COVID-19.

  • Preferably (initially) based in Belgium.

  • You report directly to the Founders.

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, feel ready for the challenge to build the S&M team and to accelerate the growth of Magnax Motors and you have a passion for state-of-art technology, we’d love to hear from you. In time, the right candidate can progress in his career into the role of Sales & Marketing Director to lead our global Sales & Marketing activities.
