Hardware tester (Student job)

Prime Vision / Location Delft / Technical Master

At Prime Vision, we pride ourselves on our people, and accordingly, are always looking for new talented individuals to join us. Of course, professional qualifications count, but more importantly, we want smart people that share our passion for technology.

It’s exciting, when talking to our clients, while our technology impresses, it’s our people, approach and attitude that excels. And that is the way we want it to stay.

The job

Within our innovations department we are in the last phases of our robot design for the parcel logistics market. The project “autonomous sorting” focusses on delivering a high quality but flexible option for the parcel sorting market (think of PostNL). The solution consists of an arena in which a multitude of robots drive around to sort parcels from input to output sorting direction.

We are looking for a hardware tester who is responsible for testing different aspects of our robotic and robotic system against the requirements for compliance of the Machinery Directive.

As part of our innovation hardware team, you will perform a wide variety of tests, ranging from endurance tests to safety-related aspects of the robot. An important aspect of testing is the design of a test protocol that you must follow during the test. If testing equipment is required, you must build a test setup. So some level of DIY skill is required. At the end of each test, a report should be prepared using a standard template. All reports must be in English, therefore a thorough knowledge of the language is required, especially in writing.


Your tasks may include testing:

  • The impact of the robot at various speeds during a collision
  • The braking distance at various speeds/loads
  • Endurance/load of electrical components
  • Static and dynamic load effects

Your background

You are currently in the final years of your master of a technical study and have affinity with testing the limits of machinery. You are precise in documentation en setting up experiments/test plans.

You are hands-on and ambitious, self-starting with a responsible and flexible attitude, you love to be challenged and you are a team player. You are available for a minimum of 2 days a week.

What you can expect from us

You will be properly supervised during your work placement and be given the scope to get the best out of yourself.

Naturally, we provide a suitable work placement compensation.
