Senior Sensor Development Engineer


Senior Sensor Development Engineer



Amersfoort, Netherlands

Sensor Developer to design our high-end sensors for our European Head Office in Amersfoort (The Netherlands).

Do you have knowledge and experience with fine mechanical development? And material knowledge of glass, metal and (filling) plastics? Are you creative in using this material in developing a high-end design? Then we would like to get in touch with you.

What are you going to do as Sensor Developer at Yokogawa?

As a Sensor Developer at Yokogawa you design the high-quality sensors that are used for measurements of process parameters of liquids such as pH and conductivity. You’ll develop a sensor based upon new customer requirements or feedback from our own production. Yokogawa’s customers who purchase your sensors need to rely on the quality and reliability of this product in their processes to process scarce raw materials into useful products for your energy needs. Therefore, you are responsible to develop and test a qualitative design according to prescribed standards, such as PED, ATEX, EMC.

From the product manager you get the request for a sensor that’s able to i.e. withstand a certain temperature. During the design phase you involve our production line and research laboratory in the possibilities for the use of material and its effect on the current production line. Producing sensors is micro-precise work. The used materials each have their specifications and qualities when they come into contact with temperature or acidity. This must be tested before a designed sensor can be taken into production. You are proud of a new design or if problems with an existing sensor are solved by your redesign.

At Yokogawa you get the chance to educate yourself further in new measurement principles for pH and other process parameters such as Free Chlorine (FC) and Turbidity (TB). With a focus on quality, safety and manufacturability.
