You will be implementing the battery systems in various applications depending on the specified requirements of our clients—working closely with them to ensure that their needs are being met.


As our savvy Mechanical Engineer, you will be: 

  • 3D designing and prototyping battery packs based on client requirements
  • Keeping an eye on the assembly process
  • Revising & iterating for series production
  • Working on your own assignments as collaborating with other engineering teams
  • Giving input for process & design standardization
  • Checking in with the production team
  • Occasionally working directly with clients to manage logistics
  • Working closely with R&D and production
  • A day in the life of a Mechanical Engineer (applications):

A day in the life of a Mechanical Engineer:

Your day kicks off with a cup of coffee, giving you the caffeine fix you need to get started. You check your email/messages for any updates and then check in with the project leaders Bas Rijs and Luuk van Ravenstein. You delve into 3D-designing your project, and follow up with the R&D team and the client to make sure you're on the same page and all the specifications are met.


Next, it's time for lunch. If it's a nice, sunny day you head outside to catch some rays with your teammates on a lunch walk. 


Then it's back to production, where you check up on assembly. You need to check whether the battery system communicates correctly with the excavator it will be used in, so you ask our embedded software engineer Sebastiaan Verhoek to check this with you. You are not sure about the delivery of components, so you Chris Sampson to check on the purchasing process. Finally you want to make sure that the ELEO branding is put correctly on the shiny final product, so you ask Luan Andrade for his creative eye. 


You wrap up your work and it's time to go home! You had an awesome, productive day and got a ton of great work done with your team. Enjoy your evening, and see you tomorrow!

Example case
We work on a wide variety of electrical applications, such as motorcycles, excavators, and mini loaders. In the video below two ELEO-colleagues and our client talk about implementing our battery systems into a tractor. As a Mechanical Engineer, you design the battery pack in 3D CAD software (Siemens NX or SolidWorks) with all the given requirements, assemble it, and test it. Depending on the client you even install the battery pack into the application.
