Mechanical Engineer (m/f/d)

We are “Innovative Robot Delivery” — a start-up founded by the inventors of the DHL Packstation locker system. We want to revolutionize delivery logistics a second time, with mobile parcel lockers and end-to-end last-mile automation: for greater efficiency, lower costs, but above all for less road congestion, packaging waste and a much lower carbon footprint. 

That's why we need you: a committed Mechanical Engineer (m/f/d). With a high degree of independence, you will manage the development and implementation of our Smarcel mobile locker product and integrate it seamlessly into our overall solution. If you have a passion for innovation and are ready to redefine delivery logistics with us, then you've come to the right place!

Your areas of responsibility include

• Module and prototype optimization
You will carry out and document tests to improve the mechatronics and the reliability of our mechatronic mobile parcel locker modules, including optimization based on customer feedback and documented functional tests.

• Preparation of a small series of mobile lockers
You will prepare specifications, carry out negotiations with potential manufacturing partners,  select  them and establish a set-up for coordination.

• Small-series production
You will supervise the production of the small series , including initial validation and acceptance.

• Supplier management
You will select and efficiently coordinate our suppliers for the mobile locker.

To be successful in this role, you should possess the following core capabilities

Enthusiasm for innovation and creativity, paired with strategic thinking and the ability to translate technology solutions into concrete plans.

As a driving force, you will not only play a significant role in shaping our automation strategy, but will also communicate our company's mission both internally and externally.
