If micro-mechanical development, simulation on models, doing concepts and design in CAD, having in-house tool shop makes your mind start wandering and think of innovative mechanical solutions, and if having fun at work makes smile, then read on! We may just have the job for you.


In the Design & Usability Group, we are looking for a senior mechanical engineer, who is into 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.


Putting your fingerprint on our projects and processes
No matter which of our four mechanical teams you join, you will do micro-mechanical development; you get to do concepts and design in CAD, make prototypes in our tool shop, simulate on models, and evaluate solutions with your colleagues. And of course, get to follow your project all the way to realization and production in Poland or overseas. We constantly have 8-10 projects in the pipeline at different stages and it leaves a lot of opportunity for each engineer to find a suitable task to dive into”, says your new manager, Bo Skjoldborg


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 implement 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.

Welcome to Team Mechanics & Partners
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, a focus area of this team is good supplier corporation and best practice for externalized development of selected products. 


I think we are very committed to what we do – people are just super engaged, and we have the numbers to prove it”, says Bo smiling, referring to the latest external engagement survey “it’s important that our colleagues come to work to make a difference – I think it shows. Many of our colleagues are also spending time together before or after work being active in one of our social – or fitness clubs. Did I say we have a fully equipped gym here to use for free?”.


Mechanics & Partners is a part of 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.


 “The group foremost focuses on mechanical part development, and we play an important part in the big picture, i.e., the finished product. We have all the competencies we need in house. It creates an atmosphere of transparency and accessibility as your colleague is never far away. If you need to clarify something before you go on with your own task – go and ask! The close corporation environment also enables each individual engineer to gain a profound understanding of how the “dots are connected” when developing high-end products” says Bo.

Mechanical engineer with an interest in simulation
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 stack-up, Design For Manufacturing DFM, Design For Assembly DFA)
  • PTC Creo 3D CAD, GPS and 2D specification
  • Simulation

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.


We constantly try to stay relevant as a house of developers. We therefore reserve time for honing existing and development of new skills - we regard competence development very important, not just to solve the challenges of today but preparing for tomorrow as well. An example could be our high focus on simulation as a supplement to physical tests, to enable faster learning cycles” says Bo.


We are expanding in the Design and Usability Group and are also looking for Senior Engineers for some of our other teams. Please see the job ads titled “Senior mechanical engineer with PCB design focus” and “Senior mechanical engineer with a curious mindset”. It’s important for us that you find the position that is best for you, so feel free to upload your application if you are curious about and interested in one or more of the other positions. 

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 11th of June. We will conduct interviews as we get the applications. If you would like to know more about the position, you are welcome to contact Senior Manager for Mechanics & Partners, Bo Skjoldborg +45 4149 9458

We are looking forward to hearing from you.
