As a Development Engineer you translate market demands and technical challenges into successful products. You work according to DFSS (Design for Six Sigma) methodologies from definition phase through concept development to a final result in a multidisciplinary team. You also monitor the technical / functional status and progress through design reviews and risk reduction activities. We expect you to take the lead in the coordination between the Design Center, development partner, suppliers and Production Engineering.
During the concept phases of projects, the emphasis will be on concept determination and coordination / coordination with suppliers as well as with other departments within DAF (Styling, Vehicle Definition, Electrical Systems and Testing). In later phases, risk inventories and the actual releases and product take-offs will play a stronger role. Decisive and pro-active intervention in the event of threatening problems is part of your duties.
Part of the work consists of (co-) drafting measurement requirements, conducting tolerance studies, drawing up control plans, developing assembly strategies and tools as well as analyzing measurement data.
Given the increasing amount of electronics in a truck, knowledge or experience in the development of electronic / mechatronic components is an advantage.


  • You have graduated from a Bachelor degree in Industrial Product Design, Automotive Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Electrical Engineering.
  • You have a few years of work experience with the development of plastic dashboard products and electronic / mechatronic components, preferably in the automotive industry.
  • You have experience with CAD systems, preferably Unigraphics.
  • You have experience with constructing in plastic (casings) such as manufacturability, tooling, strength & stiffness and touch & feel.
  • You are able to turn technical challenges into realistic products.
  • You are decisive, independent and have a driven collegiate attitude and you can work well in a team.
  • You master the English and German language. Dutch is an absolute pré.


We will boost your career through personal and technical growth. We’ll support you by offering a personal coach and the possibility to follow courses and training via our highly recommended Yacht Academy. We’ll offer interesting benefits and a market conform salary. You’ll become member of the team of professionals who share your education, ambitions and your competencies. This will enable you to interact with your colleagues from Yacht in your own technology language! You’ll become a member of the yacht network, which stretches the high tech industry. You will be challenged by your peers. As a result you’ll be able to keep your knowledge and skills up-to-date!


The Cab Development Department consists of three construction groups: Body & Exterior, Dashboard and Interior & Trim. Together they are responsible within Product Development for the realization of (sub) projects for the entire cabin. The realization takes place largely in consultation with various suppliers and a number of large development partners, but always on the basis of their own final responsibility in the concept definition and development. The vacancy is located in the construction group dashboard.
