“I get my satisfaction from leading projects and going through fire for a customer so everything is completed to everyone’s satisfaction.” 


As Project Leader, Machine Construction / Industrial Automation at RoboPharma in Waalwijk, you are responsible from A to Z for various projects. You independently lead a number of projects and also are responsible for the planning and management of several project teams.

You are the driving force!



As a Machine Construction Project Leader, you are at home in all markets. You are technically well-versed, customer-oriented and experienced in project-based work. Of course you don’t do everything yourself, but you do keep an overview. You oversee possible risks and have a nose for commercial opportunities. And you like to keep all the balls in the air.

With us you can indulge yourself in the field of technically creative solutions. You transfer your drive and involvement to the people you work with, so that together we ensure satisfied customers. You use your creativity and positive attitude to get people moving and you pay attention to the atmosphere in the project teams.
