About us

OptiCept optimizes biological processes – Increased extraction from raw material, extended shelf life, reduced waste, and improved quality (taste, aroma, color, nutritional content) of the final product.   

    

The positive effects of technology increase efficiency for our customers, better products for the consumers, and minimal impact on our environment. Through patented technology in PEF (pulsed electric field) and VI (Vacuum Infusion), the technology opens up new business opportunities for the food and plant industry worldwide. OptiCept’s vision is to contribute to a sustainable world by offering efficient green cutting-edge technology that is easy to use in the areas of FoodTech and PlantTech.  

 

We work in a wide field of technology with expertise in electronics and biotech, working with new technology and development. At our heart, we are an innovative company that aims for a more sustainable planet. 

 

As a Process Engineer, you will be part of developing the various applications of CEPT and VI within the Food and Plant Segments. You will eventually be given responsibility for one or more applications areas. Since we are growing the potential for further promotions are very good. We are looking to fill more than one position since the department needs to grow significantly. 

 

Responsibilities 

  • Understanding our customer’s manufacturing process 
  • Come up with solutions to our customer’s problems 
  • Commissioning of installations (performance optimization and test) 
  • Training and supporting our installation partners and distributors 
  • Project Management of application development projects 
  • Drive equipment requirements towards R&D 
  • Test new designs of CEPT and VI equipment 
  • Specify and/or develop PLC software 
  • Support Business Development with customer process knowledge 
  • Negotiate with and manage suppliers for installations 

 

You will be traveling in Sweden and Europe (Mediterranean area) quite extensively (50-70 days per year). Trips to Asia, the US, Africa, and South America could eventually also be necessary. 

You report the directly to the Director of Process Engineering and will work closely with Sales, Supply Chain & R&D as well as with our Distributors. 

 

Qualifications                                        

We are working at the forefront with breakthroughs, introducing cutting-edge technology on the market. 

Not your typical 9-5 – quite the opposite. We have found that the most important qualifications are a good basic technical knowledge and a curious mind that is willing to learn and go the extra mile. 

We are looking for a person with a university degree, preferably a master’s degree, in food processing, microbiology, automation, or another relevant subject. 

We prefer that you have a few years of experience in food processing and are used to working directly with customers in the field, but recent graduates are also welcome to apply. Attitude is more important than experience. No previous experience of CEPT or VI treatment is expected, you will receive training in this. 

Our CEPT and VI are controlled by a Siemens PLC and is often integrated with the customer’s SCADA system. Experience with PLC control is important and you can specify to developers how control and integrations should be programmed. Even better if you can program in the Siemens TiA portal. 

You speak and write English at a near fluency level. Proficiency in other languages such as Italian, Spanish or Greek is meriting. Currently we have a need of a French speaking Process Engineer representing us towards France, Tunisia, and Morocco. 

As a person you are curious and passionate about technology, collaborative and very well organized. You should also like to and be able to lead others, internal or external resources. 

Part of the work is carried out at OptiCept Technologies AB’s customers or partners’ facilities, why a driving license is a requirement. 

 

Company Description and culture  

 

We are convinced that diversity is important for both well-being and efficiency. You become part of an international and supportive culture where everyone believes in the company’s development with a strong focus on creating benefits for the world.  

 

At OptiCept Technologies, all employees contribute with knowledge, experience, and dedication. As we cover a wide range of knowledge, including electronics, automation, process engineering, biochemistry, service, logistics, quality, etc. with relatively few people, it is important that you are interested in areas other than your own and that you want to develop as a person. By understanding each other and working together, OptiCept becomes better as a company.   

 

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a journey where we go from a small development company to a major product company. Our products, methods, knowledge, and organization are developing at a high pace and the future looks very bright. Do you want to be part of the journey?
