This is a role in which you will be working with structured, governed and phased implementation projects. That means to simultaneously work in different development projects of different size and length. You will be an important part of global projects, meaning that you will be in close relation with Project Managers and Project Teams from different sites of Thule Group. While working with small projects would require you to work on your own, when it comes to bigger ones, you are also expected to take the responsibility, coordinating and implementing the appropriate resources in order to carry out the testing in the most suitable way. As an example, new products would require you to set up new test plans and how these should be executed.
The daily tasks include to perform general testing according to test plans, standards and regulations. You will also write test reports, summarize the pertinent standards and support the compliance team in different ways: for example by gathering requirements for different products. Other tasks included are to support with testing in claim cases and translate standards to real test methods. There is also contact with third party institutes which are included with many different standards related to the products. Our products have all kind of high standard requirements in order to have the minimum claims and complains about them. Therefore, an important part of this role is to secure that all of these products fulfil the mentioned requirements.
You need to be a structured person with a curious and proactive mindset to become a dedicated team member in our testing department. These are important aspects as Thule Group always strive for taking our projects and products forward. You are creative and have a genuine interest for the products that you work with, as well as a customer perspective in terms of quality and safety. We also believe that you enjoy working with test both practically and theoretically and have an ability of being self-going but also be a great team worker. Your social skills and ability to interact with others are also important as there is a high level of collaboration between test and simulation. We work in a high pace environment and it is therefore crucial being able to set and keep timing targets while having an ability to easily adapt to new conditions.
We expect you to have a minimum bachelor degree in mechanics, mechatronics, chemistry or biology along with some years of work experience. You need to have knowledge in basic measurement tools and measuring methodology. It is a plus and an additional merit if you have experience from standardization, quality assessment or similar.
