Vacancy

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 Product Coordinator at EuroSort, you are responsible for implementing, securing and maintaining the product portfolio. This product portfolio consists of the three generic sorting machines and all specific components and systems. You mainly have a coordinating role, but are also partly involved with the implementation.

You work closely with Product Engineers and R&D Engineers. In consultation with them, you are presented with a problem concerning a machine that needs to be solved. You discuss the possible solutions and then either start drawing or delegate this to your colleagues. What you deliver varies: sometimes it is just a production drawing, sometimes it is a calculation model or marketing information for a brochure. You delegate in-depth concept developments to the R&D Engineers; then you coordinate and ensure that everything is delivered on time.

You are part of the Tech team, which is managed by the Manager Tech. The team also consists of Products Engineers, R&D Engineers and another Product Coordinator.

If you like having a lot of contact with both colleagues in the office and in the workshop, and you find it interesting to find solutions to technical problems, then this is a job for you.

Working week

On a less enjoyable day, you run into a problem during a test. Since you are responsible for the problem, you need to get the right parties together to solve it.

Firsthand experience

As a result of the corona crisis, there are supply problems with the frequency inverters of the sorter motors. These motors are crucial for building the sorting machines. How do you solve this?

In cooperation with Supply, you start looking for other suppliers, where you, as the technical person, determine in cooperation with the suppliers whether they can deliver a solution for the machine. Following discussions with the various suppliers, you choose the best option. This driving mechanism is then implemented in the company. This driving mechanism is validated and implemented technically, electrically and via the software.

Growth

EuroSort considers personal development very important. That's why there are many opportunities to follow education and training programmes, and courses. EuroSort is currently developing a training policy to make this more concrete.

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

What do you do in your spare time?
Fishing.

Wiebe de Jong - Manager TECH

Why did you decide to work for this company?
I started as an intern (Engineer) when the company only had a few employees (almost nineteen years ago). The type of company has always given me opportunities to develop and grow in the organization. It has never been boring as the company and product continues to evolve. The company is always open to new ideas.

What did you study?
Mechanical engineering.

What do you do in your spare time?
Hockey, Formula 1, enjoy drinks on a terrace and play sports.

Andre Meulman - PLC Software Engineer, Control department

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.

What was your previous job?
PLC Software Engineer IA.

What do you do in your spare time?
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!
