You will develop automated test systems for Victron Energy, one of the leading companies in designing products for battery-based energy systems. These test systems will be developed and build in Groningen and eventually be placed in their production lines in Asia to program, calibrate and/or test Victron Energy products.
Also, you will analyze the test data for making further improvements to the test procedure or the product. Various techniques come together, but the core techniques are electrical engineering and information technology. You communicate with the R&D and Supply Chain departments within Victron Energy. Your input on the development of test methods would be highly appreciated. The test design team consists of 3 people with the same passion: creating the best product for a satisfied customer. You work on various projects simultaneously, so the ability to prioritize is vital.
