As Thule Group continues to grow we offer you the opportunity to join our Engineering team at our Global Product Development Center in Hillerstorp, within our different product categories; Sports & Cargo, Packs, Bags And Luggage and Active with Kids.
In this position you will support our product development projects and R&D-engineers with results and analysis from tests and measurements to make sure that our products always meet the level of safety and quality that we expect from them.
In your daily work you will perform tests of components and complete products according the highest standards and demands from a local legislation perspective. You will work in close collaboration with our test team and manager for testing as well as other team members by planning and following up test results through the development process. You will also play a key role when it comes to creating test plans, translating standards into best practice test methods as well as developing new test methods.
As our new Test Engineer you are a curious seeker of new knowledge and comfortable in challenging set ways of working and old truths. You easily switch between deep analysis of regulation- and standard texts and the hands on approach of testing our products.

We believe in strong team work both within your own team but also across teams. We strive to be an open and curious organization, sharing our knowledge and inspiring one another.
