Do you as a Senior Mechanical Engineer have high level of knowledge on how to describe the functional demands and desires on assembly line machinery by using drawings and other TPD’s? Then we have a great opportunity for you!


The Production Engineering department designs, configures and modifies existing and new production resources and assembly (lines) for the production of turbochargers. Product and process development vary from further development to complete innovations. Existing production methods are continuously improved and optimized. The activities within Production Engineering are divided into teams: mechanical design, process engineering, project engineering and industrial automation. Around 40 FTEs work in the department.

Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine Europe (MTEE) is a global player in the field of turbochargers for the automotive industry. Did you know that we have a 20% market share in Europe? That means that 1 out of 5 cars in Europe are fitted with a turbo that was made in Almere. For automotive to be able to contribute to global climate objectives, downsizing (a smaller engine with greater power, possibly hybrid) is necessary. Using a turbocharger is the best way to make this technically possible.

As our parent company is located in Japan, we work in close collaboration with a culture known for its hospitality. And this shows in everything. From our production line in Almere, we deliver directly to our OEMs all over the world. All of our 800 employees make this possible. Proud and dedicated, that’s what we are!


As a Senior Mechanical Engineer you know designing processes very well. With focus on functional design, you have a high level of knowledge on how to describe the functional demands and desires on assembly line machinery by using drawings and other TPD’s. You know manufacturing processes always follows on the functional descriptions in drawings and TPD’s rather than the other way around.

Next to the responsibility for your own day-to-day design work in projects and the reviews of designs of the assembly line project you are working on, you also bear responsibility of monitoring and executing review processes of the work of other design engineers. You will be doing this together with the Team Leader Design.

In addition, you are a key player in the process of constantly improving the quality level and standard of the design department output.

The ISO GPS drawing standards are as “the back of your hand” and safety and the machine directive are rules you know how to live by. Achieving high level of quality in the product of Production Engineering, the TPD’s to create high-end assembly lines in automotive environment, is your first and foremost drive.

A helicopter view on the direction the developments have to go is no problem for you, just as you are very good at keeping an eye on details in how to make high quality drawings. For you, discussions are always on a professional level, to build up quality and to motivate colleagues.
