Once a project starts, you are the responsible person, from analyzing the client’s wishes to delivering the product. You manage a team of highly qualified engineers and you maintain the pace of the development process by taking typical risk-based decisions.

In the team, you play a leading, inspiring and coaching role. You show decisiveness from a technical perspective to help the team and the project move on. You also radiate seniority towards the client. As a multidisciplinary leader in various phases, you ensure the best solution for the client. In your work, you have a great deal of independence and freedom to organize your work.


Are you a Lead System Engineer with:

  • An entrepreneurial spirit?
  • Leadership qualities?
  • Broad technical insight?
  • Good analytical and conceptual abilities?


And do you have?

  • A technical university degree?
  • Affinity with hardware development, from drawing board to delivery?

If so, as Lead System Engineer at DEMCON Singapore, you will:

  • Discuss the project with potential clients to ensure that you provide the right input for the quotation.
  • Be involved in setting up the functional architecture and join in design reviews.
  • Set priorities for the activities in the planning and be responsible for the budgets.
  • Coach and supervise engineers during the entire process and design process.
  • Put a test assembly or prototype through its paces so that you can assess the main risks of the chosen technical solution.



Demcon develops and produces mechatronic products and systems. We do this for various markets divided into five business units: high-tech systems, medical systems, industrial systems, robotic systems and optomechatronic systems. Over the course of 26 years, Demcon has grown from a start-up into a leading design house with 700 engineers, including a production facility. A business that started in a small room at the UT now has six sites. As well as Enschede, Best, Delft, Groningen (NL) and Munster (D), we have decided to open a base in Singapore. We want to expand the Singapore office into an independent design house with local engineers.
