R&D Test Systems is looking for a Senior Systems Engineer

Do you want to apply your broad mechatronic experience to our technically challenging test system projects? Are you motivated by developing new solutions for groundbreaking or one-of-a-kind projects? Then it might be you we’re looking for!

R&D Test Systems are experiencing a growing demand for our competences globally. For this reason, we are looking for a Senior Systems Engineer with at least five years of experience with system design and control within combined electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical systems. R&D Test Systems delivers turnkey, heavy-duty test systems for primarily wind-, aerospace- and oil & gas industries. Our competencies span across most engineering fields, and you will take on a key role in successfully integrating systems and aligning across different disciplines.

You will be a part of our skilled Systems Engineering team, made up of 20 engineers with a mechatronic background. We have high ambitions, and we help each other succeed and get better.

You will spend most of your time in test bench projects for our customers. You will be a part of the projects from sales or concept phase, and all the way to customer handover. We expect you to take ownership of the test bench by ensuring it meets customer requirements, using the right solutions in terms of quality, cost, and time. The test benches are by nature one-of-a-kind and therefore we often have to create new and progressive solutions to meet our customer’s needs. This gives rise to exciting and technically challenging projects, along with a steep learning curve.

What we expect of you

  • Master's degree in Mechatronic Engineering or similar
  • At least 5 years’ experience within systems design and model based control of mechatronic systems
  • Experience with MATLAB/Simulink, preferably also Hardware-in-the-Loop simulation

  • Strong analytical and numerical skills, combined with a practical approach that enables you to bring the solutions to reality
  • A structured approach, capable of keeping overview while tracking time, cost, and quality
  • An ambitious team player that seek out better ways of doing things and help your peers by sharing your knowledge
  • Full proficiency in English and an ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment


  • You will act as a technical lead on complex projects, ensuring that the design meets the performance requirements, keeping a sharp eye on cost and quality, while guiding the design team in the right direction
  • Supporting sales on quotations and selling the right concept / solution
  • Systems design, by breaking customer requirements down into functionalities and subsystem requirements
  • Design, specification, and procurement of hydraulic, cooling and lubrication systems
  • Functional specification of the test bench control, and integrating the mechanical-, hydraulic-, electrical- and control systems to function as one high-performing machine
  • Strengthening the Systems Engineering team by knowledge sharing and encouraging skills and tools development
  • Reviewing and mentoring
  • The job can also include travels for on-site inspection and commissioning. Annual travel days up to 40 days are expected

We offer

  • A performance-driven and innovative culture, focused on developing and delivering world-class engineering
  • An encouraging and open-minded work environment
  • Exciting career development opportunities
  • The opportunity to make a difference for our customers while working in our leading teams of talented and committed people across fields and geographics
