Then we might have an opportunity for you - Travel / work from home!!

New York - Thursday at 15:00: happy faces with the commissioning of the fast charge station for 40 electric buses. Satisfied, you pack up your kit and you board a plane home; you just helped another city to get purer air!

We also deploy fast charging infrastructure for electric trucks, port equipment and marine transport as a turn-key solution.

Our company is unique, with lots of freedom and room for creativity. But with stiff goals and ambitions, too. We need to perform and we are looking for the best.

Because you make (y)our ambitions happen!

You are responsible for installation, testing, maintenance and repair of our cutting edge, fast charging solutions for electric buses, trucks and other heavy duty transport solutions. Heliox is currently market leader and is always innovating, so you will work with the newest technologies for fast chargers.

As our newest Senior Service Engineer, you pioneer our service organization, you perform preventive & corrective maintenance, plus you drive and support commissioning activities for Heliox Automotive products - across the United States (focus on eastern North America). 

Main job tasks and responsibilities:

  • Provide on-site commissioning activities, including Site Acceptance Testing (SAT).

  • Provide on-site training to customers and colleagues.
  • Diagnostics of failures in case of abnormal product performance.
  • Update and enhance service documentation.
  • Assist with coordination of necessary service activities.

We are looking for an experienced Field Service Engineer who has worked with medium to high voltages. You like to share your knowledge and experience with customers, installation parties and with colleagues.

You are an ambitious professional who likes to initiate, deploy and work in a broad perspective.

You always strive for the desired result by finishing your tasks and by standing for a high level of quality.
