We improve the quality of life for millions of people worldwide. That is what we do. It’s as simple as that. 


What is not so simple, is the way we do it. And this is where we need you!


In the Design & Usability Group, we are looking for two senior mechanical engineers, that gets a kick out of working with product development using cutting-edge facilities within prototyping, design facilities, reliability testing, tool manufacturing and production technologies with the goal to develop hearing instruments with a focus on hardware.


Have we caught your attention? Great, then read on! 

Putting your fingerprint on our projects!
You can look forward to putting your fingerprint on both future and current projects here! We work in cross-functional teams during the whole the development cycle. And, if you want to see your design progress, we have our own prototype center with RPT technology and facilities to make micro-mechanical prototypes. It makes what we do very tangible!” says Team Manager, Mechanics & Customers, Paola Sima


You can dig deep and spare with people, but also get the big picture. That could mean to guide mechanical developers and support the planning of the daily project activities or plan and execute design work, specifications, design reviews and documentation.

As a senior mechanical engineer, you will also contribute to the competence development of our department. That could be: 


  • Defining and adjusting internal processes with mechanical development
  • Maintain competence map and define direction for competence development
  • Ensure knowledge sharing among developers


You can expect 5-20 travel days a year, visiting suppliers and our production site in Poland.

Become a part of the Design & Usability Group

In our Design & Usability group, we are around 80 engineers working with development of hearing solutions within the fields of Mechanics, Electro-Acoustics, and Usability. Our responsibility for design begins from the very early technology explorations to ramping up in mass production.


We seek to deliver an intuitive and seamless user experience and interact with internal and external stakeholders across Device SW and HW. In collaboration with the Electronics group, we develop the complete Hardware Platforms consisting of both mechanical and electronic parts.


In our group, we focus on the mechanical part of the development. One of the things that make working here great, is that the R&D department embraces the whole circle of development in-house! If you want to spare with a colleague on an issue you are trying to solve, for example in the Electronics, the person is sitting literally just around the corner.” says Paola.


We have two available positions in the Design & Usability Group, one in the Mechanics & Tools team, and one in Mechanics & Customers Team. The positions are closely related, but if you have a preference, please state this in your application.


Mechanics & Tools team
Here you will join 11 team members, where the focus is on connecting the dots between the electronics and mechanical interface of our products. Besides product development, the skill of robustness and reliability of our products is handled by this team, together with ownership of our CAD system.  


Mechanics & Customers team
Here you will join 11 colleagues with a versatile skillset and a holistic product approach, advocating for the customers perspective when innovating. The team’s common responsibility mindset enables fast development and continuous will to improve status quo. Our focus is to enable improved conceptualization process and design methodologies to ensure we create the right solution.

Mechanical engineer 

You have a degree in mechanical engineering or similar, and already have some experience in the field.  Probably, you have experience in areas like:  
mechanical development and design within medical- or small consumer electronic devices


  • ME integration of electronics design (PCB, connectors, batteries, radios etc.)
  • Robust design (Tolerance, Design For Manufacturing DFM, Design For Assembly DFA)
  • PTC Creo 3D CAD and GPS/2D specification


We work with agile product development like Scrum and SAFe, so if you are not familiar with it already, you should have an interest to work in the agile framework.


Curiosity is a really good quality in this position. We always look towards what can be done better and smarter, and always keeping a clear focus on customer needs. What can WE do, even the smallest thing, that in the end, can make a difference to our users” says Paola with a smile.

Join our team!
Apart from working together with very enthusiastic colleagues you will experience that we have great focus on your competence development, the department’s professional skills and in Work-life balance.


Please send your CV and motivation letter latest 29th March. We will conduct interviews as we get the applications. If you would like to know more about the position, you are welcome to contact Team Manager for Mechanics & Customers, Paola Sima +45 60927431


We are looking forward to hearing from you.
