About the Challenge

Are you a pet lover looking for the purr-fect job, combining a love for cats and dogs with a talent for process optimization and a predisposition for working independently? Do you foster the ambition to, at a later stage in your career, take on a leadership role in a fast-growing international company? Then perhaps becoming a Process Engineer for United Petfood is the ideal starting point for you!

As a Process Engineer, you manage and improve our production process. Your job is to find opportunities to improve the safety, quality and reliability of both the process and the machines. You make sure new products have a successful start.

This position comes with a lot of responsibility. You’re not only in charge of the stability and continuity of our production process, you’ll also be coaching and guiding employees, involving colleagues in changes and make them enthusiastic about changes and improvements in their daily work.


Your skills

Do you love pets? Are you passionate about a healthy planet filled with healthy cats and dogs? Then you might just be the paw-some new employee we’ve been waiting for! Especially if you can check a few additional boxes:

  • You hold a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in a technical field (electrical engineering, chemical technology, technical business administration,…)
  • You speak English fluently
  • You can show that you’ve done well in school
  • You can work independently and have a great capacity for problem solving
  • You can work with people and know how to manage them as a natural leader

Apart from joining an international, passionate and driven team at the client, working only with the most innovative technology available, here’s what you can expect from us:

  • You’ll join an awesome community and enter one of our Smart Programs, based on where you are in your career and where you want to go. Did we mention you’ll get a personal coach as well?
  • Next to a generous monthly salary, you'll receive a company car or a flexible mobility budget and tons of other benefits (pension, daily compensations, etc.)
  • You’ll spend most of the time at (y)our client’s, except for regular Exellys trainings, fun events, tribe meet-ups, after works, knowledge sharing sessions, etc.
  • After two years of coaching and upskilling from Exellys, you’ll get the opportunity to join (y)our client’s organization as an internal employee. Or if you prefer to stay with us, you could explore our follow-up Smart Programs as well.
