Experience in industrial biotechnology or a related environment is a plus. You are driven and keen to realize projects. You work meticulously and pragmatically and always strive for improvement. You hate routine and like variety and challenges. You can work independently as well as in a team.
Nobody is perfect and there is certainly room at the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant to "learn on the job! You cannot tick off the entire list above, BUT you are flexible, eager to learn and
you are open to tailor-made training? You have no fear of challenges and a healthy dose of pioneer blood flows through your veins? Then be sure to contact us!
To support our very capable and friendly Automation Engineer, we are looking for an equally sympathetic and Hands-on Automation Mastermind. As an Automation Support Engineer in our pilot facility, you choose for an “out-of-the-ordinary” job in a particular working environment at the service of the fast-growing bio-based economy. The colleagues from our technical department are ready to welcome you into their team with open arms! They (and therefore you too!) keep our exceptional pilot facility operational and also take care of the many daily technical adjustments needed to keep all equipment and processes running. You will therefore work closely with our Automation Engineer who is responsible for process control, logging, electrical installations, utilities, ICT and network infrastructure. We are happy to entrust you with the care and updating of the software for process control. In addition, you also follow up the electrical work, including the necessary debugging, corrections and tests at/after start-up. As a true team player you support our technicians, process and maintenance employees and various projects when it comes to electrical, automation and control needs. You also operate "in the field" in other words, not only from your desk, but also in the laboratories and the pilot factory. Due to the vast diversity of projects, you stay far away from routine and get the opportunity to gain new insights and experience again and again. A healthy dose of curiosity is therefore recommended!
You will be employed by the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant. The Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant was established in 2008 and currently has more than 100 employees. It is a unique, open innovation pilot and demonstration facility for process development, scale-up and (test) production of bio-based products and processes. We combine a large and flexible range of modular unit operations with a team of highly qualified and experienced bio-process engineers and technicians to translate bio-based laboratory scale processes into cost-effective industrial processes. These innovative processes contribute to a sustainable bio-economy and help to respond to the major climate challenges.
To date, Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant has carried out more than 300 bilateral projects for more than 150 companies from all over the world. It is/was also a partner in more than 40 publicly funded projects.
