Purpose of the position


We are looking for an experienced engineer to hold the overall responsibility for our electrical powertrain development together with our electrical engineering team here in Tampere, Finland. You will be working closely together with other experts in our engineering department & product management department, ensuring that our hybrid and FastCharge (plug-in) machines are delivered and developed according to customer requirements. 


Furthermore, you will be working with frequency converters application development and have the opportunity to test our applications at Kalmar test yard and at times onsite at customer premises. In addition to what is expected from you in this role, you will have the opportunity to play with fully automated or manually driven off road vehicles and deepen your electrical power train understanding.


Our ideal candidate has:


  • B. Sc. or M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering - Power electronics
  • Electrical power line knowledge and experience
  • Experience of frequency converter parametrization
  • An interest in seeing how our technology is integrated into providing sustainable port and terminal operating solutions across the globe.

  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills
  • Solution oriented mindset
  • The ability to fluently communicate technical details to experts and other relevant stakeholders in English

What can we offer for you?


  • We are an industry frontrunner in the deployment of automated port and terminal solutions, globally. Joining our team you can be part of shaping the world's global supply chain towards a more sustainable future for our children and future generations to come. 
  • There is a good level of autonomy and flexibility in the work we do. We expect you to deliver and pride ourselves on collaboration, but how many days you are in the office each week is not nearly as important as how you work and the impact you can have.
  • We have one of the nicest offices Tampere has to offer, with our backyard testing facility enabling you to see and work hands on with some of the big machines we deliver to our customers.
  • We are part of Cargotec. With this in mind you will be part of a truly global organisation headquartered in Finland spanning approximately 11,500 people in 45 countries and operations in more than 100 countries worldwide.
