Sandvik Coromant is a frontrunner in metal cutting and our industry leading position is based on decades of experience, core technical knowledge and passionate people. As innovators and change makers, we always push boundaries and test limits - rethinking, redefining and redesigning to figure out what’s possible to achieve. We consider R&D as the heart and soul of our business and we are proud of our large, and constantly increasing, product portfolio.

The Grade Development Department in Västberga, Stockholm is responsible for development of new cutting tool materials. Our team is part of the R&D function for Cutting Tool Materials – an agile and curious crew that stay up to date regarding our customers’ needs and requirements, to always be one step ahead and exceed expectations. We’re now looking for a R&D Engineer to engage in one of our core grade areas within milling, turning and drilling grade development. A great opportunity for someone who wants to influence and develop, together with world-leading experts in a truly competitive and global environment. Your days are both varied and exciting, and you never know where new technology and the power of fulfilling customer needs may take you. Join us and shape the future of manufacturing!

About the job
In this position, you develop our next generation of outstanding cutting tool materials, and with your application knowledge and curiousness in applying digital solutions, you’re constantly improving our understanding of customer demands. You analyze worn cutting tools and the feedback we get from our customers to draw conclusions on how to continually improve our products, and you translate and simplify complex matters into actions to ensure that the R&D departments are developing appropriate solutions. An important responsibility of yours is to develop testing strategies for the grade area, based on technical customer specification of demands. You’re comfortable working in laboratory environments, as well as at our customers where new products are tested, and you investigate what material characteristics are most important to influence the development of innovative cutting tool materials.

In this position, you report to the R&D Manager of Grades, and some travel is included in your job.

About you
We’re looking for someone with a master’s or PhD, preferably in Materials or Mechanical Engineering. Experience from working with material research or product development combined with customer interaction is advantageous. Practical or theoretical experience of metal cutting is also valuable in this position, as is experience in writing reports and analyzing results of projects and tests and presenting these. As we operate in a truly global environment, you’re fluent in English, while knowledge in Swedish is advantageous.

We’re sincerely interested in your personality. You’re curious, systematic and patient, and we appreciate that you know what is good enough, yet eager to keep activities moving forward to ensure on-time delivery. You combine a networking mindset with technical skills, and you enjoy a setting where sharing knowledge and supporting your team members are crucial. Your personal drive and 360 approach to solving problems also come in very handy. Finally, with your clear and communicative way of working, you set the foundation for good collaborations, both with co-workers and customers.

About us
