Product Support Engineer, Mechanics

We are looking for a Product Support Engineer for mechanics.

Over the past 10 years, 3Shape has successfully launched several revolutionary optical 3D scanner products, serving the audiological and dental restoration industries. 3Shape Dental Lab scanners enable efficient digital workflows by scanning dental impressions and gypsum models, to facilitate CAD design of dental restorations. The TRIOS scanners enable high-definition, digital workflows directly in the dental clinic, and are disrupting the traditional dental workflows by eliminating the need for physical impressions of patient teeth.

To support further growth in our TRIOS scanners, we are establishing a Product Lifecycle Engineering team to work on improving production efficiency and cost, product quality and maintenance as well as design for manufacture.

The Product Lifecycle team will be nested in R&D but also have employees at our production site in Szczecin, Poland. This position is located at our headquarter in Copenhagen.

Job Description

We seek a skilled mechanical Engineer to work in the interface between R&D and Production.

You will analyze production and quality issues to identify root causes, work with R&D, Production, Supply Chain and/or suppliers to find a solution and take responsibility to implement improvements. This involves working with our CAD, ERP & Change-control systems to ensure successful implementation

You will further work with developing production tools and contribute to new product introduction and design for manufacture. Your work will vary between improvement tasks you have identified yourself and solving urgent issues and hence requires a flexibility towards changes and an ability to maintain attention to detail and quality under tight deadlines.

The ideal candidate is a hands-on, implementer who enjoys working in a cross functional team and further has some years of experience within production of electro mechanical devices.

The work will take you travelling for 10-20 days/year.
