Company profile
For over 100 years DSM has dedicated resources to research, development, and production techniques, leading to create some of the world’s finest coatings, fibers and plastics. An important innovation area is the solar PV market. DSM is developing innovative breakthrough technologies to boost the cost/performance ratio of solar energy systems. DSM Advanced Solar (DAS) is a leading solar photovoltaic (PV) materials supplier, delivering anti-reflective and anti-soiling coatings, and advanced back sheets to PV module makers. DAS is building on this strong position to develop and deliver additional materials and technologies to module makers as well as downstream players in the value chain. DAS has technical support teams and application development hubs in both Europe and China that can offer module producers direct – and personal – design and process support around the world.

Job description
Are you excited by innovation and new developments for the Solar market? Are you an energetic development engineer who likes to develop and improve new processes for new materials to increase the efficiency of the use of Solar Energy via solid, durable and sustainable solutions? If so, then this might be a perfect opportunity for you.

As Process Development Engineer you will work in a multi-disciplinary team to improve DSM solar materials and their processing. The goal of these developments is to strengthen the position of DSM materials in the market. For these developments DSM recently opened the Solar Technology Lab which is based in Geleen, the Netherlands. Together with a team, you will support the development and implementation of a novel anti-reflective coating for solar modules for the aftermarket.
As a Process Development Engineer, your main task is to develop reliable and affordable processes to coat already installed modules on location with DSM’s AR coating in co-operation with the current project team.

Your responsibilities will be:
  • Test the feasibility of the coating processes with DSM solar materials with regard to process-ability and material properties. Report and advise about the findings;
  • Investigate process windows of the processes and translate this into operating procedures and technical packages;
  • Use product and process tools such as risk analysis (FMEA), statistical design, analysis techniques and testing protocols;
  • Support outdoor coating trials on customer location;
  • Collaborate with the project team, equipment suppliers and service providers to set up joint R&D activities to solve technical issues;
  • Deliver input to specify the coating tool. Transfer the knowledge to the project team.

Who we're looking for
The ideal candidate has a technical B.Sc. background (Physics, Applied Science, Chemical or comparable) and at least 5 years of experience in process development, preferably in (spray) coating technologies. You have a hand-on mentality and you are eager to improve processes and products by analysing, experimenting and reporting of the results.
Can you work with engineering partners and contractors to organise basic engineering of processes? Do you have knowledge of quality systems and process requirements in correlation to the product? Are you an inspiring teamplayer and do you like to travel? We are looking for you!
