Product Assurance manager
QinetiQ Space, located in Kruibeke, develops scientific experiments for research in space focused on the International Space Station and other microgravity environments. QinetiQ Space is also active in the development of satellites. We wish to strengthen our team with a “Product Assurance Manager”.
At project start-up, your initial focus will be the translation of the customers’ product assurance, quality and safety requirements into a specific, pragmatic approach for the project.
You will then monitor the implementation of this approach during the different development phases, including design, manufacturing, integration, test and delivery. These activities are quite diverse and will include subcontractor monitoring, non-conformance handling, performance of dependability analyses, hardware inspections, participation in formal customer reviews, support to test campaigns etc.
As the projects’ product assurance manager, you will also interface with the customer and provide him with regular reporting on the performed activities.
In addition to the above responsibilities at project level, you could be assigned to company level improvement projects within our EN9100 Quality Management System.
We expect candidates to have a master degree in engineering, preferably electronics or mechatronics. The ideal candidate would be an enthusiastic result-oriented and fast-learning team player with good communication skills at all levels. Fluency in English and Dutch is an absolute must.
A first experience in a related field would obviously be an asset, although specific coaching with regards to aerospace quality/safety/dependability requirements is foreseen.
The leading edge technological aspects and variety of work makes working at QinetiQ Space an exciting challenge. QinetiQ Space offers you a unique opportunity to fully develop your talent/career and prove yourself in one of the top high technological companies in Flanders. A challenging and exciting opportunity in a team of enthusiastic and inspiring colleagues is waiting for you.
