Mechanical Field Engineer

A unique opportunity for you!

Wilgenhaege Innovations invests in large-scale energy storage solutions. These systems are unique because they are based on clean technology. The systems are large-scale in the sense that their storage capacity ranges from a few megawatt hours to several hundred. Large-scale energy storage is a new phenomenon and we want to position ourselves as the world leader in the clean energy storage market.

Our technologies are based on different principles to what we see in the technology for batteries and recharging that have been in use for decades. The starting point in the design of our systems has been our goal of storing energy using clean technology. It is obvious to experts that the concept of “clean” has never been a consideration in the history of the design of batteries and storage technology.

We’re looking for a  Mechanical Field Engineer who will feel at home in a young and dynamic working environment which is seeking to add a new dimension to the world of energy. We are driven. You will find that we are passionate about constantly improving every single thing we do. We like to look at things differently, in order to arrive at new insights. Does this appeal to you?

We love people who think, and we also love people who act. We like to think “out of the box”. Sometimes there isn’t even a “box”. It doesn’t really matter how we reach our solutions, just as long as we get there. In most cases, they come from the fact that we help each other to enjoy what we do and to stimulate each other. We are revolutionary and realistic. We want you to help us strengthen our innovation team. You will be involved in all aspects of our product development and production. Do you think that you would fit in with us?

We are looking for someone who already has a few years relevant work experience and is looking for a major challenge.
