Your Impact

As a Production Engineer within Life Sciences, you have a strong interest in pharmaceutical production processes and aseptic techniques. You love to learn (and keep learning) about the manufacturing process and want to become an equipment or process specialist.

With a focus on production equipment, your main tasks are to implement and validate the production equipment and production lines to be used, all the way from the design phase to final release and use in commercial production. Taking into account a detailed risk analysis, you work out a project planning, including the feasible timelines and budget planning. Furthermore, you are responsible for executing the project plan in a GMP compliant way. You have technical know-how and offer support in analyzing and solving technical problems.

You ensure that these activities are performed according to the current quality requirements and you reach out to all involved stakeholders (QA, Production, Laboratory...) in a timely manner. Moreover, you are also the point of contact for the implementation of process improvements and for follow-up actions arising from deviations and CAPAs.
