We want to come up with smarter ways to make the best use of agricultural resources, and to help eliminate food waste.

We are looking for an experienced Test Solutions Developer to join our R&D test team at our fast growing innovation center in Denmark, and take on an exciting and technically challenging position. If that sounds like something you would like to get out of bed for every Monday morning, then read on.

In this position, you will be part of our R&D test team that in close co-operation with our product programs analyze, define, design, implement and test the next generations of components and instruments.  

We are looking for a strong product owner, that can interface to and collaborate with our R&D product programs.

Our ideal candidate holds a relevant degree, for example as Electronic Engineer, Software Engineer or similar, with minimum 3 year’s experience within agile development and production test solutions.
