Headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, we leverage superior engineering and state-of-the-art manufacturing technology to establish long-term partnerships with global contractors and oil companies.

For our material and testing department, we are hiring a Material Engineer with expertise in testing and characterization of polymeric materials. You will work with and run your own development projects targeting qualification of new polymer-based materials and components. Central in these qualifications is long-term ageing tests in relevant offshore and oil producing environments where mechanical testing and thermal analysis such as DSC or DMA are used for characterization. You will also be highly involved in defining technical scope and manage progress of such development projects. Finally, you will support the rest of the organization on technical issues related to your field of expertise within polymeric materials. You will have close contact to our internal qualification laboratories, manufacturing sites in Denmark and Brazil but also with 3rd validation party, suppliers and customers.

Most testing will be performed at our in-house state-of-the-art-material qualification laboratory. As part of your work you should expect some travel activity (up to 10 days/year) but will for the most part take place at our headquarter in Brøndby.

  • As an advantage, you also have a background and/or experience with composite materials.
  • You have a strong understanding and experience in mechanical testing as well as thermal analysis techniques.
  • Finally, you understand the long-term properties of polymers and their degradation mechanisms to design ageing tests and qualification programs.

The material and testing department in Flexibles is located at Brøndby where we act as a global competence and knowledge center for the organization supporting primary our Danish and Brazilian manufacturing facilities. Our product operate at extreme conditions and needs optimal technical solutions to obtain required performance. We are currently 70 engineers and technicians with broad competences within steel, polymers, material modelling and composite materials. The technical level and requirements are thus high, and we are proud of our professional approach .
