Mechanical Engineer (F/M/D)

Germany, Berlin, BerlinR&D

Job description

Climate change and biodiversity loss are accelerating and threatening the foundations of our lives. Food, especially meat, is a major cause of greenhouse gas emissions. We know it, yet all too often we give in to our cravings and choose meat instead of sustainable alternatives. And did you know: global meat consumption is growing massively!

We are convinced that irresistible pleasures, not compromise, are key to changing people’s ways. What the world needs is new food, so delicious that billions of people indulge in eating it, saving the planet as a beneficial side effect.
There’s no time to lose. Join us now and let’s build this positive future together!

As our Junior Mechanical Engineer you will work closely as part of the engineering team to build mechanical concepts for prototyping and preparing technical drawings.

Job requirements


  • Prepare, maintain and improve the lists of specification and requirements of the workshop machinery
  • Concept development of manufacturing processes from scratch until serial maturity

  • Hands-on manufacturing of components in metal (e.g., CNC machining), polymer and metals (e.g., additive manufacturing)

  • Generation and development of new intellectual property
  • Develop and implement functional components for production machines
  • Structural dimensioning of components through analytical and numerical calculations, using CAE-tools
  • Preparation of technical drawings and GD&T using CAD-tools
  • Conduction of feasibility studies on plant-based textile manufacturing techniques. Following evaluation, documentation, and presentation of test results
  • Take full responsibility to design, manufacture, tests, and eventually implement experimental test rigs for the validation of our patented fibre processing techniques
  • Taking responsibility to accomplish tasks of multiple project with external suppliers, research institutions, etc
  • Preparation presentations and workshops
  • Generation and development of new intellectual property


  • Completed university education as mechanical, production, mechatronics engineer, or similar (BSc, MSEng.) with <2 years of professional experience
  • Strong practical and theoretical knowledge in product development methodology
  • Experienced in CAD-modelling software (CATIA, Autodesk, SOLIDWORKS), including GD&T analysis
  • Strong knowledge and hands-on experience in machining and assembling techniques of metal components and test-rigs is necessary
  • Strong analytical and communication skills
  • Bring a creative and solution-oriented design thinking mindset into daily tasks
  • Solid knowledge in textile and composite manufacturing techniques is a plus
  • Knowledge and practical experience in fluid dynamics is a plus
  • Experienced in FEM-modeling is a plus
  • Experience in programming and hands-on handling CNC-machines is a plus
  • Solid organisational and planning skills, capable to work with minimal supervision and with a proactive attitude
  • A team player willing to innovate, constructively challenging the feasibility of state of the art production techniques


We’re about to build something massive – a gentle giant. In around two to three years’ time we’ll have an internationally distributed team, which is why everything has to work remotely. For starters, though, we strongly believe that our culture and team spirit will benefit from spending most of our time together at one workplace, our beautiful office and kitchen-laboratory.
