Innovation and proactivity will help make us a winning team

The role

You are the Manufacturing Engineer who will translate the special orders of our international customers into production plans. With your knowledge and experience you are in the driver’s seat as you coordinate everything in production to deliver the required custom pieces to our customers. At RAVAS, we are very ambitious, and we are looking for colleagues who can help us improve our processes and organize the way we work better. Your input and knowledge would be very much appreciated. Do you have the drive and ambition to join our team? Buckle up for this adventure! 

As a Manufacturing Engineer you are an expert in calculating, supporting, and preparing technical products. You are the link between engineering and production with the aim of ensuring that the right information, documents and materials are available at the right time to allow the production department to function optimally. The team is responsible for the (technical) development of approximately 750 customer-specific quotations and orders on an annual basis. These are the systems that fall outside the standard range. This means that everything is custom-made and therefore not one order or drawing is the same. This makes the work as a Manufacturing Engineer diverse and prevents you from doing repetitive work all day long. In this position there is a lot of room for own initiative and suggestions for improvement, in fact we expect that from you! Working at RAVAS means being part of a team that wants to move forward. We are an international organization with a “get things done" mentality and no nonsense culture and as a Manufacturing Engineer you get the opportunity to interact with many different departments and to contribute to the goals and ambitions of RAVAS.
