Junior Process Engineer

We are currently seeking an enthusiastic and motivated Junior Process Engineer to support our growing business. Position Objective In this exciting opportunity to join our team in Leeuwarden as a Junior Process Engineer, you will be closely involved in the application of AQANA’s patented technologies. Your input will be required at various levels from the (pre-)Sales stage to the commissioning and start-up of new installations. Together with the Sales team you will make sure that every design parameter is checked and confirmed before finalizing the design according to the clients’ needs. In some cases you may go to site with the dedicated Sales manager to discuss the treatment possibilities with the clients’ technical staff.

For each of your projects you will make sure that the operation and maintenance manual is up to date and adapted to the clients’ specific situation. This will be your point of reference when training the client’s staff during start-up, and support AQANA’s service department in the after sales trajectory. As an AQANA Junior Process Engineer you will have the opportunity to travel worldwide and connect with different cultures and traditions. Depending on the location of the project you will be staying abroad for short periods of several days up to longer periods of several weeks or months. We offer a unique opportunity to build a career in a global environment. You will provide technical support, remote or onsite, to customers, agents, and our field-based Sales team. Your skills and technical expertise will contribute directly to our success and play a key role in selecting the appropriate technical solution for each project you are involved in. In some cases, a specific effluent may require a local (in our own laboratory in Leeuwarden) or remote pilot run which you will design and follow-up.
