You will be part of our team Production Engineering Panes with the overall responsibility to support the production area management in development and execution of the manufacturing strategy. We are developing optimal solutions according to agreed production area portfolio projects and tasks.
Most importantly, is your practical and logical mind-set and your pragmatic approach to problem solving.

In addition, you are result-oriented always with a focus on how to create value for the business.
As you will engage with stakeholders throughout our organization, you must be fluent in Danish and English, both orally and in writing - other European languages such as e.g. German would be a strong asset.
