Process technologist / operator

Netherlands, Gelderland, OchtenOperations

Job description

Are you the process technologist / operator who loves variety, enjoys working at different locations in Europe, and wants to help our high-tech machines get up and running in different countries over the next few years? Then you are the one we are looking for!

Who are we?

Over the past 10 years, In Ovo has been developing and implementing our high-tech Ella machine, which can determine the gender of eggs. This prevents the culling of millions of chicks per sold machine and has a massive impact on animal welfare and efficiency, saves resources, and creates a more ethically acceptable egg production channel. With new legislation and interest from retailers coming up in multiple countries, we see more and more hatcheries requesting the In Ovo solution to support their business. We will grow considerably as a company, continue to improve our machines and will put many machines in the market, in order to end the culling of chicks completely. This way, we will make a significant, positive impact on animal welfare and sustainability in the global poultry sector over the coming years.

You will be joining a young and ambitious team that likes to have fun. With the whole team we work very hard to realize the success of the company. This creates many challenges and therefore also many victories, and successes are there to be celebrated. In short: a pleasant and informal atmosphere! Catching up with colleagues is extremely valuable to us to maintain our connection.

What will you do?

As a process technologist / operator, you are the one who runs our high-tech machine during production. Together with the technical team, you ensure that the production process runs smoothly. You identify problems and assist in implementing technical improvements.

Because you are actively involved in the start-up of new machines at various locations in Europe, you will also regularly spend time abroad during the week. With the growth we foresee, no day will be the same in the coming period!
You are a real hands-on person, who proactively takes responsibility to ensure that we can process as many eggs as possible. We strive to save billions of chicks and that may be thanks to you. You are an approach worker, who always takes responsibility to ensure that we can successfully sex as many eggs as possible.
