You will join a team of highly skilled engineers working primarily within mechanics, software development and electronics, developing future products for the dental industry.

A significant amount of time will be spent to conceptualize and verify aspects of the design against user needs and other requirements. To achieve this, we utilize our prototyping facilities, and ultimately in our production facility in Poland. Our products are medical devices, which leads to a natural focus on user requirements, safety, quality and efficacy of our systems.

Besides working closely with the Polish production teams, you will cooperate with the Supply Department, as well as with Danish and foreign suppliers, to arrange prototype- and serial-production and optimize design for manufacturing.

Our mantra is that developing world class products should be fun and we aim to move faster than the competitors.

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