Acquisition based on this advertisement is not appreciated. We usually fill the vacancies ourselves and in exceptional cases we work with preferred suppliers.

As a Junior Technical Writer at EuroSort you are responsible for the technical documentation for a project concerning a sorting installation. You structure, design, write and maintain this documentation and ensure that it is delivered on time.

In order to clarify the scope of the project, you consult with the Engineers. You collect the right information for the documentation and then start working on implementation of it. This includes operating and maintenance manuals for the installation, test documentation based on functional and technical specifications, performance test documentation and training documents. It is important that this documentation is completed by the time the installation is delivered.

You are part of the Technical Documentation team, which consists of a Senior Technical Writer and a Mid-level Technical Writer. The Project Manager directs you and you receive daily guidance from the Senior Technical Writer.

If you like to be involved with technology in a linguistic way, and you find it challenging to deliver well-structured documents, then this is a job for you.

Firsthand experience

Not all the information you need for the technical documentation is available. How do you solve this?

In cases like this, it is important that you take the initiative to collect this missing information yourself. For example, you schedule a meeting with an engineer or a project manager, or you search the archives for the right information. On the basis of all this input, you can then write clear documentation.


EuroSort considers personal development very important. That's why there are many opportunities to continue education and attend training courses. At the moment, EuroSort is developing a training policy to make this more concrete.

In this way I gained some nice experiences and now I supervise the installations.

Why did you decide to work for this company?
With a predilection for technology, I have always been looking for a working environment in which I have to deal with multiple techniques. At EuroSort, various systems come together in the control of the sorting installations. From controlling various sensors, actuators, motors and servo drives, to communication between different systems, such as servers, HMI and cameras.

In my spare time I enjoy doing water sports or hiking.

Marco Vonk - Purchaser

Why did you decide to work for this company?
I started in 2011 as an Engineer at EuroSort. In addition, I did project-related purchases. Due to the dynamic growth of EuroSort, I have gradually started to concentrate and professionalize myself more in the field of purchasing. Partly because the organization feels great, from which we get satisfaction together, this is a huge stimulus to develop myself further and to keep the enthusiasm high. This is an advantage of EuroSort for me!
