Mechanical engineer for development of injection moulding tools

Do you enjoy developing new equipment and processes – with all the collaboration and discoveries that go with it? Are you ready to take on the responsibility for driving a development project all the way to production? Would you enjoy going to work every day knowing that your results make a difference? Then join us and be part of something unique – this position will provide you with excellent opportunities for personal and professional development.


About the department 

You will be joining 40 dedicated colleagues in the Device Manufacturing Development Department in Hillerød. We develop the equipment and processes that transform great designs into actual products for our patients, bridging the gap between development departments and the production lines. 

The dosage pen systems that are a big part of the success we enjoy are always under further development. We strive to ensure they meet and exceed the expectations of a growing and demanding market. We design all the equipment necessary to perform all the processes involved in the manufacturing of the dosage system components - and this is where we need you. 

You will be working with experts in the field of plastics manufacturing processes and raw materials, and you will be in close collaboration with a broad range of stakeholders. We enjoy sharing our knowledge, and we are eager to get to know you and learn from you. If you appreciate collaboration in a creative and ambitious environment, you will feel at home with us.


The position 

As our new colleague, you will be responsible for developing robust and cost-effective injection molding tools. You will review the design of new plastic components and challenge specifications based on manufacturing capabilities. In collaboration with mould makers and with your colleagues in production support, you develop the right technical solutions based on a well-documented set of requirements. You take the mould through an extensive period of testing and process optimization to ensure proper functionality, resulting in the targeted output of plastic components that fulfill all specifications. 

To ensure the safety of the patients using our dosage systems, everything we do must adhere to a well-defined set of regulations and quality standards. New processes and equipment must be qualified and validated to ensure that they comply with these standards. You play an important role in supporting the validation of newly developed moulds based on the requirements that are critical to the quality of the produced components. 

This position offers a high level of collaboration across the organization and with external suppliers. As such it is crucial to maintain excellent relationships with your key stakeholders. You will collaborate with strategic sourcing managers to select suppliers and reach out to production operators to understand their value drivers. Product developers provide crucial input to the future manufacturing needs for new dosage systems and you will align with quality assurance professionals to ensure compliance with regulatory standards – just to name a few of the many places where your face will quickly become familiar. 

You will also be part of the global support of Novo Nordisk manufacturing lines. This means that your experience and knowledge will benefit colleagues in our sites all over the world, and that you can count on a large support network of experienced experts when solving the challenges of your new job. Together, you will be identifying root causes to unexpected events or deviations from specifications, provide solutions to the issues and implement relevant preventive measures



You hold a Mechanical Engineering degree, and you have at least 5 years of experience with the development of injection moulding tools. We hope that you already know your way around the many requirements within regulated production setups, but if not, you will receive relevant training. Perhaps you have been employed at a mould maker for some time, as a mechanical designer or supporting customers like Novo Nordisk with application and process development. Or maybe your background is relevant in other ways. 

Your outgoing personality and your communication style make it easy for you to establish and maintain trustful relations across a diverse organization, where many people have backgrounds very different from yours. You are great at engaging and managing stakeholders, and your direction-setting initiative is rivaled only by your ability to follow through and your keen appreciation of quality. You enjoy sharing your knowledge, providing support for your colleagues when they need it. 

Because you will be working with international business partners, it is a requirement that you are technically proficient in English, in speech as well as in writing. If you understand Danish, your job will probably be easier, but it is not a requirement.

You will be investing your unique skills in an environment focused around the exchange of knowledge, where your talent and experience is valued.
