The Position

As a Senior Equipment Supporter, you will be part of a tech support team that collaborates closely with the department’s craftsmen and precision mechanics’ workshop. We are participating in projects that ensure stable and efficient production when the line is approved by the authorities.

Once the line is fully implemented, your focus will be on:
•    Providing technical support to the line, including troubleshooting and problem-solving during stops and breakdowns.

•    Participating in ongoing evaluations of line maintenance and performance. 

There are great opportunities for growth in this role, and you can help shape the best framework for success.


To be considered for this position, you should have:
•    A bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, automation engineering, chief engineering, or in a similar field.
•    Solid experience with maintenance, troubleshooting and optimization of automatic production lines, preferably within the pharmaceutical industry.
•    Strong understanding of GMP, a systematic approach and a good understanding of quality.
•    Experience with implementation of new equipment, including change requests, validations, and requirement specifications, would be considered a plus.
•    Fluency in Danish and English.

On a personal level, you are highly responsible and independent in problem-solving and planning. Having a proactive service mindset, excellent collaboration, and organization skills are essential in this role. 

Being a team player, who is ready to help colleagues, while staying adaptable and flexible are key skills we like to build foundations of this team on. A detail-oriented person, with a natural curiosity for technical solutions and an ability to easily acquire new knowledge are traits we will welcome in our new colleague.
