Technical Designer

You’re a dedicated techie with a mission. As a designer it’s your job to understand and translate (the most crazy) show ideas into crystal clear technical sketches and 3D designs that together with your team, you bring to life in our warehouse in Heist-op-den-Berg.

About the job

You’re a dedicated techie with a mission. As a designer it’s your job to understand and translate (the most crazy) show ideas into crystal clear technical sketches and 3D designs that together with your team, you bring to life in our warehouse.

Welcome into our engineering team, the R&D department in our WI01 building in Heist-op-den-Berg. 

As a new bird you start up with supporting sketches for 3D designs safely flying under the wings of a senior. After a warm up period depending on your entry level you gradually fly more independently. Together with your colleagues you investigate the technical requirements necessary to realize an effect or a special construction and you translate designs and sketches into implementable execution designs.

You integrate plannings and pre-calculation flows. You screen options and possible flaws with the project designer. Production follow up is done in first instance by the engineering team but the faster your learning journey, the more active your role will become in this aspect of the job too.

Adaptation and optimizing designs is a further step. And from day 1 you’ll be involved in fabrication and assembly in our warehouse. Great opportunity for a reality check when abstract designs are turned into tangible show realities.

In our business no frustration, no years before a concept gets finally realized. Instant rewarding is guaranteed. Count on a couple of months on average. You design, create and deliver ready sharp for the testing kick off of a show. Always a memorable moment.
