About Wefabricate

Wefabricate's mission is to ignite a revolution in the manufacturing industry: create a fully automated factory. In doing so, we don't transform towards automation, but we take automation as ground zero, optimizing in the most excellent detail on efficiency, quality, and speed. We bring ideas – solutions and products – to life and ramp up mass production in no time!

We believe our people can be at their best when they can focus on the things they love to do. So, we avoid inefficiencies like recurring meetings and micromanagement. We want to see you grow and develop your talent and excel, because we strive for efficiency in everything we do. That's how we enable our people to go the extra mile and how we do not manage, but dare to rely on you!

Job description

We automate manufacturing processes to minimize manual intervention, cycle times, risks and costs for our unique Lights Out Factory. Automation is key in building the factory of the future. As an automation/mechatronic engineer, you are responsible for designing and building a fully automated factory by developing high-tech machinery and automation solutions—for example, tending machine solutions, injection molding automation, logistics automation, and automated test equipment.

Moreover, we focus on automated solutions for various manufacturing processes like assembling, dispensing, pick and place, laser-marking, ultrasonic welding, and heat-staking. You will become part of a multidisciplinary project team that is responsible for developing these solutions. You are involved from defining the requirements and performances to designing and prototyping to qualification and system integration of mechatronic solutions.

Since almost everything can be made in-house, we can build new solutions at unprecedented speed. This means you will also have in-depth discussions with, for example, our machining department about how to manufacture complex parts. Furthermore, a lab environment is available to analyse and perform measurements.


  • You cannot stop dreaming about solutions with mechatronics, such as mechanical design, electronics, drivetrains, sensors, dynamics, control hardware, pneumatics and robotics;
  • Mechanical/Mechatronics Engineering or related;
  • Familiar with 3D CAD Software;
  • You have an entrepreneurial mindset;
  • You dislike inefficiencies and figure out ways to eliminate them;
  • You go the extra mile to achieve next-level goals (both personally and for the team!);
  • You feel an unstoppable urge to learn and need to be surrounded by a talented group of people continuously challenging you!

What do we offer you?

  • Be part of a manufacturing revolution and join as one of the first 200 employees, a unique opportunity to help shape a fast-growing tech company's blueprint;
  • All Wefabricate pioneers are selected carefully, and therefore, we promise you you will work with the finest engineers able to challenge you on your innovation journey. You will outperform yourself day by day and help others around you to outdo themselves as well;
  • People should always be our limiting resource, not technology. Therefore, we will make sure you will have the best technologies/machines to work with;
  • You will receive a laptop and an iPhone. You can use it for personal use as well;
  • Working at Wefabricate is a joint venture, and therefore, we facilitate numerous team events and (free) daily lunch and dinner;
  • We believe everyone within Wefabricate is able to determine what conditions work best for them. Flexibility is key. For example, you can determine your working hours (evenings and weekends are also possible);
  • If you make overtime hours, these will be compensated either financially or as extra holidays – you decide;
  • We offer market-competitive benefits, including a yearly bonus
