“You get to follow and drive the projects end-to-end from a technical perspective. You will be involved from initial scoping to production, sales, and optimizations. The technical aspects of the projects will be yours,” says Henning Nørregaard Jensen, R&D Director.

What is the job about?

The role will connect you with a vast network across Grundfos holding the responsibility of driving the technical solution of future products in the right direction.

Based on system engineering principles you will make sure that the architecture is defined and captured into system elements which are executable by the system elements teams. This will be done in close collaboration with the development teams, the manufacturing engineering teams, the product owners and other relevant functions.
