Social Impact Project for Research & Development Engineer

How This Works

As part of the TRANSFORM Support Hub, you will learn how to advance your career while getting hands on experience on projects like this one.

Project Description and Impact

As our company scales up we need to continuously assess and improve our design and reliability to better meet the customers needs. This project will be based mostly in the field to find areas of improvement and to understand the needs of the customers. You will make regular recommendations for improving our processes and technology which will be implemented in a continuous innovation cycle. The project may include a trip to China to meet with our manufacturers to discuss possible improvements.

  • Assess needs of customers and what opportunities we are missing with our customer
  • Analyse our repair logs and determine a cost-effective strategy for reducing repairs and customer complaints
  • Test system improvements
  • Implement system improvements by training staff and modifying operating procedures
  • Check technical accuracy of staff work.

We can provide a small stipend for accommodation in the town a few meters walk from the office and very close to our biogas clients.
