Mechanical engineer

At Avular we design, build, and test the hardware, software, electronics, and robotic platforms to tackle every mobile robotic challenge, from ground solutions to aerial and aquatic solutions. We do this with the greatest enthusiasm because we believe that Mobile Robotics will help solve some of the toughest challenges of our time. If you are a mechanical engineer who is motivated to help us with designing solutions for (complex) customer problems and you thrive in a young, passionate team of engineers with multidisciplinary backgrounds, then you are the professional we are looking for!

You are full of innovative ideas, take initiative, oversee your tasks and responsibilities, and work autonomously. You have creative ideas for the best solutions and can contribute substantially to our products’ mechanical development activities. With your excellent communication skills, you can communicate with different disciplines and backgrounds to ensure alignment within and across the teams.

As part of the Custom Solutions team, you will be working together with your colleagues on solving a variety of customer problems where communication and a multi-disciplinary view are key for success. Your job will vary from designing components in CAD to assembly and testing your design in practice to building mobile robotics and preparing for (mass) production. You are also not afraid to work with electronics and are able to interact with electrical engineers to ensure the mechanical designs are aligned with the electronical designs (e.g. PCB).

Besides working on the most innovative and challenging projects and products, we also find it important to celebrate our successes and do a lot of fun things together as a team such as team barbeques, sporting events, and a yearly team weekend.

We are a fast-growing high-tech scale-up from Eindhoven. At Avular, we believe that mobile robotics will help make the world a better place, so with our products and services we accelerate the creation of new mobile robotic applications that shape a brighter future for all. Our goal is to make robots accessible on a global scale, and ensure robots can add their value to our future on a worldwide scale. Our robots, both on the ground and in the air, can thus be found across industries, always keeping our purpose in mind: from agriculture to cleaning and from construction to hospitality. We set ambitious goals for ourselves, but with our team of highly motivated and bright colleagues, we together achieve our goals. We value our people and pay a lot of attention to their well-being, which is reflected in the informal culture at our office. Besides that, we find it important to celebrate our successes, as a team and as a company. As of day one, we will make sure you feel part of our tribe!
