Process Performance Engineer

Hello potential future Oatly employee. It’s us, the original oat drink company that started in Sweden back 25 or so years ago.

In the last few years, we’ve become a popular and pioneering dairy-alt player in the market. We're continuing to establish our presence here, determined on being part of the discussion on the long-term future of the food and beverage industry. With this growth, we need more brilliant minds to come work with us to keep the momentum going and the oat drink flowing.

We exist to make it easy for people to eat better and live healthier lives without recklessly taxing the planet’s resources in the process. If this resonates with you, then maybe you’d like work for Oatly, too. So, let’s get to the formal stuff.

The Role

We're looking for a Process Performance Engineer. What you will do?
In this role you look into both the technical and operational aspects of the production setup. Using continuous improvement methods, you participate in root cause analyses and lead improvement projects in close collaboration with your colleagues.

Here is the main elements of the role..

  • Tracking and presenting process performance at daily meetings.
  • Take ownership for operational losses and lead the Root cause analysis or problem-solving process.
  • Identify opportunities for improvements and plan, facilitate or lead the execution.
  • Contribute to the site’s main objectives by coaching and educating colleagues in the use of CI methods and tools.
  • Permanently searches for best practices through internal and external benchmarking.
  • Lead CAPEX and/or Improvement projects relevant for his/her area.
  • Create, revise and maintain process documentation, manuals, instructions, P&ID’s and SOP’s

Who You Are

To be successful in this role you will have Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) or continuous improvement working experience. You have excellent problem-solving skills and have a good knowledge of production processes. What’s more, you like to work together with others and build sound relationships.

If we can be picky, we hope to see that you check the following boxes as well:

  • MSc or bachelor’s degree in relevant field.
  • 2 to 5 years of experience in a similar role, preferably within the food industry or industry within supply chain and production.
  • Improvement driven mindset and focused on delivering on goals.
  • Highly analytical, systematic and data driven way of working.
  • Technical knowledge of equipment in a production environment like decanters, heat exchangers, pumps and valves.
  • Excellent communication skills in English language. Dutch and Spanish are a plus.

Another bulleted list felt redundant, so we wrote this long sentence with all the ways we sweeten the deal to work with us: 30 days holiday (plus bank holidays), an awesome brand new office (with amazing cappoatccinos), RSUs (restricted stock units), cost free pension plan, bike plan, vitality allowance, tools to maintain mental and psychical wellbeing and many more.

[Phew! Well done if you’ve got this far. We’re glad we’ve still got your attention because we’ve got one last super important point to make.

As you can probably tell, we’re a norm-breaking company. For us, diversity and differences are an obvious asset. We know that amazing candidates can sometimes be put off applying for a job unless they can tick every box, and that makes us really sad. So please trust your gut and pop in your application if it’s feeling right. Good luck!]
