We are presently a group of 14 process engineers with a passion for technical solutions, who need a new colleague. The ideal candidate is able to challenge us with new ideas as well as quickly learn from Haldor Topsoe’s vast experience.

Haldor Topsøe is an international company in rapid development.

If you join our company, you will be responsible for a wide variety of tasks within the field of process engineering and will be involved in interdisciplinary project groups. In your daily work you will be in regular contact with our Refinery Business Unit, catalyst group, R&D as well as our regional offices. We have colleagues and customers on most continents, and travelling abroad is one of many dynamic parts of the role as process engineer in Haldor Topsøe.

Your responsibilities
