Sterile freeze-dried medicines are produced in our production department, Filling Freeze Dry. We are responsible for the aseptic filling, freeze-drying and sealing of the vials or AOVs. Manufacturing strives for the highest degree of operational excellence at all steps.
As a process engineer you monitor the efficiency, quality and uniformity of the production process within the department. You are responsible for the support, validation and implementation of new products on existing filling lines.
We strongly believe in teamwork! That is why the tasks below are typical for the Process Engineer, but the final result of the team is above all else.
Nice to have
