Your role at Donkervoort

In order to meet the demand and to reduce lead times, production output needs to increase. As a consequence, the production process needs to be analysed and where possible to be improved and optimised. Part of this optimisation process is the industrialisation of components (make-or-buy decisions) that to date are fabricated by hand. Tooling, templates and moulds need to be developed in order to standardize certain processes and parts. In addition to this, new parts and subassemblies need to be invented and developed that will simplify the assembly process as a whole.

what are you going to do

The intern will work within the Production Engineering group. The needs and problems of the assembly team need to be inventoried and looked for, after which technical solutions are proposed by the intern. The scope of work is positioned right between the engineering and production functions and has a portal function for the supply chain.

Next to setting up and maintaining the assembly manual up to date, the intern helps implement improvements that make the assembly process more efficient. The intern takes note of the (quality) problems the assembly team faces, reports these problems to the suppliers, investigates the root cause, and works with the supplier and assembly team to achieve a solution or improvement. Elaborating solutions into mechanical constructions is performed on SolidWorks CAD software. The intern remains closely involved in the final implementation process of the new solution.

the ideal candidate

The ideal intern is a pragmatic do-er, has a passion for and experience with hands-on mechanical work, can analyse problems and come up with solutions. A pragmatic approach and a practical skill set are essential to do this job properly. The intern has good software skills (SolidWorks, Word, Excel) and can read and write English at a good level. The intern feels comfortable in a compact team, can take on responsibility, is eager to learn and is very motivated to turn this internship into a mutually successful experience.
