REIN4CED produces impact-resistant and lightweight bicycle frames for bicycle brands that want to offer their cyclists maximum performance with improved safety and durability.
Carbon fiber composites, known from Formula 1 and sports bicycles, are light and strong but can cause sudden, brittle and dramatic fracture behavior. As a solution, REIN4CED has developed and patented a new composite material and a new fully automated production process. In this way, REIN4CED wants to create impact-resistant and lightweight bicycle frames that offer riders maximum safety and durability. The focus is initially on the bicycle market, followed by the car industry and the aviation industry.
To strengthen our team REIN4CED is looking for a Senior Industrial Designer with extended knowledge and experience in the field of CAD including surface, freeform and mold design, preferably in Siemens NX. Experience and knowledge of composite materials and FEA is a plus. Experience in setting up and maintaining a PLM system is a plus.
As a Senior Industrial Designer, you will be responsible for 3D CAD design within REIN4CED. Based on existing CAD geometries from clients, you will create well-designed 3D parts, assemblies, part families and molds. You will also maintain the structure in which the drawings are kept, shared, saved and updated.
You will be responsible for the complete process: from visualization of concepts till final production drawing of parts. We will draw heavily on your conceptual skills as well as on your ability to learn from the process and materials engineers. You will work on a project basis at several projects simultaneously. You make your own schedule in consultation with your environment and adjust priorities and expectations.
