Cevotec is known for manufacturing innovations in composites. Based on Fiber Patch Placement (FPP) technology, the automation specialist enables multi-material lay-up of aerospace composite parts as well as improving storage efficiency of composite tanks with FPP dome reinforcement. To handle the high demand for these applications, Cevotec is now looking for motivated C++ software developers, expert robotics & control developers, experienced automation engineers, creative composite engineers and skilled mechatronics.

“As technology leader at the intersection of composites, mechanical engineering and software development, we offer one of the world’s most modern production systems with its dedicated CAD-CAM software: SAMBA and ARTIST STUDIO”, says Thorsten Groene, CEO and Co-founder of Cevotec. The young and dynamic company cultivates a collegial atmosphere based on strong joint values. In addition, it can also count on the support and experience of their partner and shareholder GFM GmbH, an Austrian-based high-tech machinery manufacturer.

On the way to establishing FPP as a standard in composites manufacturing, important projects are now on the agenda. Dr. Florian Lenz, Technical Director at Cevotec, explains: “Besides further enhancement of multi-material lay-up capabilities and serving ongoing customer projects, our technical teams focus in 2022 mainly on the realization of a SAMBA system specially dedicated to the production of H2 tank dome reinforcement”. Cevotec’s approach using FPP technology to reinforce the dome areas of composite tanks significantly saves weight and cost and receives a lot of interest from the industry. “In addition to commissioning several of these SAMBA PV systems in 2023, one of them will be available in our cevoLab to work with interested H2 tank manufacturers on further R&D projects”, says Lenz.

In order to make the new SAMBA systems “dance”, Cevotec is now looking for new colleagues who are willing to take on exciting challenges and who want to advance the technology together with the established team. The following five positions are vacant:

Cevotec’s technical team is looking for a Robotics & Control System Developer (m/f/x) whose tasks include the design and development of new machine functional designs, control architecture and process automation solutions in close communication with customers. The position Senior Automation Mechanical Engineer (m/f/x) requires experience in automation components as well as machinery construction and combines the design, planning and realization of industrial production systems and customer projects. The main tasks of the position Engineer Application Development Composites (m/f/x) are the conceptual design and development of customer components, demonstrators, and the associated manufacturing equipment as well as the planning and execution of fiber composites manufacturing. The team is furthermore looking for a Mechatronics Technician (m/f/x) who will be responsible for assembling machine components and automation systems and will support the team in optimizing the manufacturing processes.

Software development takes an important role at Cevotec, which is why this team is enlarging as well. The vacancy as C++ software developer (m/f/x) includes the development, improvement and testing of Cevotec’s CAD-CAM software ARTIST STUDIO.

“Our ideal candidates are analytical as well as results-driven and have learned to handle also difficult requirements in a pragmatic way”, concludes Lenz. “As the technology leader in FPP, we offer in return exciting technical challenges, innovative technologies, and a dynamic environment. Our customer base is very international and comprises world-leading companies from aerospace, hydrogen and other industries – we are at the forefront of technical innovation in our field!” Flat hierarchies, fast decision-making and individual responsibility paired with flexible working hours, mobile work options and incentives like lunch and gym support underline the great working atmosphere at Cevotec. Following the motto “Let’s jointly set milestones in composites”, the international team is looking forward to motivated new colleagues.

All open positions at Cevotec are based in Unterhaching, near Munich, Germany. Interested candidates are invited to check out details and apply: https://www.cevotec.com/en/careers/
