R&D Robotics Test Engineer

The Robotics and Discrete Automation division supplies products, solutions and services to increase productivity and ergonomics. ABB Robotics is a pioneer and one of the leading global industrial robotics companies and has the widest global footprint of any robotics company with presence in 53 countries.

As part of the 2020 strategy, ABB Robotics ventured in to a new area of robotics, outside the traditional manufacturing segments. We call this Service Robotics and within this business, our vision is to become the global leader in robotic products and solutions
for the non-manufacturing markets such as intralogistics, healthcare and retail.

The European Application Center for Service Robotics is located in Huizingen, Belgium and specializes in robot-centric automation solutions for e-commerce, retail, fresh food, non-food and express parcel segments. Our portfolio ranges from robotic products to modular cells and function packs, engineered turnkey solutions (like high-bay warehouses or goods to man picking) and lifecycle management services.

To support our R&D team with the development of standard/modular robot cells, we’re looking for a Robotics Engineer for supporting and executing tests and demos for our customers, by using their own specific products.

Job description

  • Perform commissioning and testing of the set-up in our workshop;
  • Demonstrate the result to the customer;
  • Provide detailed reporting and test plans;
  • Execute commissioning for modular cells and function packs that are tested at the customer’s site.


  • Solution, pragmatic and hands-on mindset;
  • An Engineering degree in electromechanics, electronics or automation (or equivalent by experience);
  • Willing to follow a training program within our Training Academy (adapted to your experience) regarding our Robotics standard before starting to work on projects with the guidance of our Technical Coach;
  • Detail oriented with good analytical and problem-solving skills;
  • Team player;
  • Able to take framework constraints into account and build creative solutions;
  • Willing to work on-site in Belgium or abroad during short periods of time;
  • Commercial skills;
