Trelleborg is a world leader in engineered polymer solutions for almost every industry in the world. And we are where we are because our talents brought us here.

We, at Trelleborg Infra, are currently seeking a dynamic and results-driven Design Engineer to join our passionate team. At Trelleborg, we are committed to shaping the future of sustainable and resilient infrastructure worldwide.

Who are we?

Our mission is to pioneer innovative solutions that redefine the limits of what can be achieved. Our focus lies in the realm of building infrastructure, where the common challenge is to ensure effective sealing, damping, and protection against water. With a rich history spanning over a century, we have been instrumental in landmark projects. Notably, our Infra-team has contributed to the development of various iconic structures such as the Oosterscheldekering and Maeslandkering storm surge barriers, as well as significant water management initiatives like 'Room for Water'. Our contributions extend globally, encompassing the realization of numerous immersed tunnels including the Coentunnel and Heinenoordtunnel, among many others.

Moreover, our endeavors extend to the development of sophisticated techniques for sealing and safeguarding offshore wind applications, alongside our dedication to other renewable energy initiatives. As projects continue to evolve in complexity and scale, we remain steadfast in accepting the inherent challenges. Our approach at Trelleborg Infrastructure is not that of a mere supplier, but that of a trusted and adept business partner to our clients. While suppliers may offer products, we pride ourselves on delivering enduring, comprehensive solutions that stand the test of time.

What is the challenge

At Trelleborg, we believe we can achieve more together. What is the specific technical challenge the client has and how can we adept to their needs? Are there creative solutions we can develop to maintain our status as a high-end tailor-made rubber solutions provider? And how do we capture this in a solution ready for manufacturing to take over? Questions we deal with daily and that’s where you come in.

As Design Engineer you analyze customers' technical needs and design a technical solution to meet these. The technical solutions we provide aim to seal, damp or protect in critical applications and demanding environments with polymer (elastomer) materials. Together with Sales and Production you develop a proposal for the solution you designed to the customer. During the sales process you are responsible for handling of the technical scope, whereas during the production phase you are responsible that the functionality of the manufactured product complies to your design. Therefore, managing partners for the technical scope throughout these processes is essential. Furthermore, you support Sales with your technical expertise for continuous development in our market segments and identify technical opportunities to strengthen our position.

Who are you?

You are an open, pragmatic, and structured specialist. You connect easily with people on all levels, and you are culture sensitive. You thrive in an environment where creativity is key and where you are enabled to make valuable contributions from scratch. As a standout colleague, you focus on the highest quality possible, and you’re not afraid to ask the vital questions to achieve that goal and to keep learning to grow your knowledge.

What do you bring?

  • Technical BSc or MSc degree (civil / mechanical engineering or similar)
  • Availability and eligibility to travel to USA, Canada, Singapore, China and EU
  • 2 - 5 years' experience

What do we offer?

At Trelleborg, you will get the chance to accelerate customer performance with environmentally positive solutions, as well as growing and improving yourself and the communities you are part of. You can expect a career path focused on growth, a competitive salary, and good secondary benefits. If you would like to discuss salary range, please don’t hesitate to call, or send a message.
