Who we’re looking for
We are looking for a Process Development Engineer for our R&D eChemicals and Synthesis Technology department. Here, you will join a team working with cutting-edge solutions within Power-to-X and carbon emission reduction technologies for production of for example ammonia, methanol, and synthetic fuels involving electrolysis and/or electric reactors.

We offer you an opportunity to join a team of highly motivated, competent, and inspiring engineers with a global perspective in an open and informal environment. Knowledge sharing is a part of our daily work to ensure the right competences and we strive towards a good work/life balance.

You will collaborate closely with colleagues across the entire organization and engineering disciplines to development the next generation of Power-to-X technologies, optimize existing technologies and to resolve issues/problems.

We are looking for a new colleague with interest in:

  • Conceptual development and simulation of existing and new Power-to-X processes and layouts
  • Preparation of process flow diagrams, and piping and instrumentation diagrams
  • Design and optimization of control philosophy, process equipment and materials specifications
  • Planning, execution, and analysis of pilot plant experiments with new technologies

What you’ll bring
You have a degree in chemical engineering or equivalent with a strong background in process technology and chemical reaction engineering, and potentially some years of experience from a similar function in the process industry or the oil & gas industry.

You thrive in a challenging environment where you often do not know the immediate way forward and have a natural curiosity about new technologies and development. We expect you to be driven, take your responsibility seriously and enjoy collaborating and communicating with both your colleagues but also with our customers both internally and externally.
