Type: Full-Time Position
Start: Early 2024

We're in search of a Senior Mechanical Design Engineer to join the Saia Agrobotics team. We're not your run-of-the-mill company – we're all about shaking up the fresh food scene with a touch of robotics. Imagine this: we pull plants out of the greenhouse one by one and process them centrally. It's a game-changer for growing tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers, all while giving greenhouse labor a break and saving on energy, land, and water.

Are you a seasoned Mechanical Design Engineer looking to join our a dynamic and growing team? As a new key player in our organization, you will be responsible for overseeing and executing the crucial task of translating prototyped and proven designs into market-ready blueprints, ready for construction. This will play an integral part of our innovation and success. You will be supported by our engineering team and also external machine builder companies to speed up development.

In this role, you'll be working with a mix of AI enthusiasts, plant lovers, and mechanical and electrical engineers. Our crew is young, motivated, and passionate about robots, tech, plants, and good food. We work efficiently, and there's always room for a good laugh.

We need someone who sees the bigger picture, spots potential roadblocks, and isn't afraid to seek advice when needed. We're into critical thinkers who can easily chat with anyone in the company. At Saia, we're big on owning your work and taking the lead. Your go-to person? Bart van Tuijl, our CTO and founder, who's got two decades of mechanical design experience.
