  • Serve as the Maintenance Subject Matter Expert across the production platform
  • Support the management team in setting up, aligning and improving operational maintenance processes during the asset life cycle
  • Interact with peer functions in related support departments like Operations, Engineering, Process Engineering, Quality Assurance to assure efficient and reliable technical support to our customers
  • Function as first point of contact for maintenance related topics


  • Bachelor degree preferably in one of the following disciplines: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Installation Technics or Process Engineering
