Senior Injection Moulding Process Engineer

Category:  Manufacturing

Hillerød, Capital Region of Denmark, DK


Do you enjoy developing injection moulding processes – with all the collaboration and discoveries that go with it? Are you ready to take on the responsibility for driving a development project all the way to production? Then you might be the person we are looking for.


The position

As our new colleague in the Plastic Processing team, you will be responsible for developing robust and cost-effective injection moulding processes and equipment. You take the mould through an extensive period of testing and process optimization to ensure proper functionality, resulting in the targeted output of plastic components that fulfill all specifications.


The plastic components we put into production are all related to medical devices, but with very different scopes between the projects. Some components are part of early development or clinical trials supporting future treatments and will be manufactured in low volumes and complex materials, where manufacturing R&D and time to delivery are the key drivers. While we also cover the full range up to extreme high-volume devices manufactured in hundreds of millions every year putting quality and efficiency at the forefront.


As we are a large group of technical experts working together, we can draw value from each person’s expertise and support professional development in many directions. The content of your role will therefore over time also depend on where you are at your best.  



Perhaps you have been employed at a company producing high-quality plastic parts in large volumes? Or a supplier supporting customers like Novo Nordisk with application and process development? Or maybe your background is relevant in other ways.


As our new Injection Moulding Engineer, you likely have:

  • A bachelor's or master’s degree in mechanical engineering or similar technical background.
  • A scientific and systematic approach to development and problem-solving.
  • Minimum 3-7 years experience with Injection Moulding of Plastic Components including:
    • The physics of the injection moulding process (e.g. software simulation);
    • Process optimization and systematic run-in of new tools.
    • Process validation for medical production.
    • the injection moulding cell and auxiliary equipment & robots.
  • Solid stakeholder management and collaboration skills.


Because you will be working with international business partners, it is a requirement that you are technically proficient in English, in speech as well as in writing. If you understand Danish, your job will probably be easier, but it is not a requirement.


About the team

As part of the plastic processing team, you will be part of a group of 17 technical experts in the Component Device Manufacturing Development Department in Hillerød. Together we drive manufacturing development for all new medical device components in Plastic covering tool development, process development, process monitoring, Injection moulding machines, moulding robots and plastic raw material specifications.


The combination of a large group of technical experts and versatile tasks covering moulds from low volume to extremely high volume gives a unique opportunity for professional growth.  We enjoy sharing our knowledge, and we are eager to get to know you and learn from you. If you appreciate collaboration in a creative and ambitious environment, you will feel at home with us.
