We are KRANENDONK Smart robotics in Tiel and we are looking for a Senior Electrical Hardware Engineer. Our customers build aircraft carriers, bridges and football stadiums. We develop and supply robotic systems that weld these superstructures together. We are rapidly developing into a Technology Leader in this high-tech market. It is a young, dynamic company that is experiencing very strong growth.

By implementing intelligent robot technology, KRANENDONK enables its customers to produce more efficiently and effectively. The production systems that KRANENDONK supplies are customer-specific solutions that are cleverly integrated into the existing material and data flows.

The field in which KRANENDONK operates is not linked to a product or industry, but to a production principle. Traditionally, robots are used for repetitive production, but KRANENDONK's competence lies in the opposite: automating non-repetitive production through smart application of robot technology. This opens up a world of possibilities for manufacturing companies.

KRANENDONK is a Dutch company with support offices in Denmark, Singapore, USA, China and Japan. Due to growth we are looking for new colleagues.
