Bring the ideas to life that make people smile.


As a Functionality Laboratory Engineer for the Washing Technology Laboratory, you will take part in the development of new washing machines at global level for the R&D department. 

A typical day at work 

You approach your responsibilities proactively and innovatively, with practical sense and operative attitude, you aim to define the washing and drying cycles through performance testing at product level. As an independent professional, you are in charge of implementation and optimization of washing and drying cycles, supporting the development of new projects and ensuring the achievement of technical targets and compliance with appropriate standards. You use statistics to draw conclusions and work on required documentation.

Your focus will be to: 
• Understand standards and customize testing procedures, timelines and deliverables related to assigned activities
