Young Professional at Research & Development

Innovation challenge

I came in contact with Océ a few times while I was studying. A few years ago, I met some students doing a project on piëzo technology. That project gave me a good impression about Océ and I realized that Océ could be one of my future employers. After graduating with my master’s in chemical engineering, I came in contact with Océ again via the Océ Innovation Challenge. During the challenge, we had three days to design an innovative concept which could have potential on the market. It was a nice way to find out more about Océ.

Diversity, responsibility and a good work atmosphere

My education focused on the material behavior of polymers and composites on the chemical, physical and mechanical levels. I am putting my knowledge to good use as a Process & Product Developer at Océ Research & Development. My main responsibility is to industrialize a specific ink. This involves learning, designing and testing an ink production process. It includes planning and designing the delivery of sufficient amounts of ink with reliable quality. Different disciplines are involved in this project, such as purchasing, process engineering, quality assurance and equipment engineering.

There are many reasons I feel very good about working at Océ. Diversity in your work, a high tech environment with multidisciplinary teams, a certain degree of freedom in doing your work, helpful colleagues and a nice work atmosphere are the main reasons why I enjoy my work every day.

What makes Océ different?

The fact that Océ has a high tech environment with different levels of responsibilities allows you to grow your career in the same company. This enables continue growth of your competencies and allows you to deal with new challenges every day. Opportunities to increase your level of education are other important ingredients that Océ offers.

That is, if you would like to work in a high tech multidisciplinary environment with continuous growth opportunities, different projects and positions, a variety of work and challenges every day Océ is a perfect match for you.”
