Product Design Engineer

Engineering Harderwijk, Netherlands


Trek Bicycle Corporation is the world leader in bicycle products and accessories with over 4000 employees worldwide. Trek is dedicated to building bikes for the riders who inspire us, from the world’s greatest cyclist to the kid next door. That drive for new ideas and passion for building and selling bikes made us expand rapidly. Currently we have several offices in the United States, Asia and Europe. A subsidiary of the Global City Product Development group is located within the Harderwijk office.  We value innovative ideas from anywhere, inspiring others with our positive energy, dealing with reality to make the tough calls, and getting things done fast – turning ideas into reality. We want to reflect society and are looking for people with a diversity of backgrounds and experiences to form a powerful team together.


Are you that kick-ass Product Design Engineer that our Trek is looking for? 

 Due to growth and career developments within the organization, we are currently looking for a new fulltime colleague. Are you insatiably curious?  Do you have mad mechanical / electrical / digital engineering skills? Are you the person friends go to when their stuff just will not work? Are you a vivid dreamer and do you love coming up with creative ways to solve problems? Are you also someone who understands that great ideas can come from any source and is able to set pride aside for a great solution? Can you ask “why?” without being embarrassed or self-conscious? When someone tells you that something is impossible, do you try to prove them wrong? The successful candidate will have to keep up with a group of highly motivated people and is highly determined on changing the world. 

If you were able to get through that list and answered “Yes!” to the questions and are still interested, perhaps we have a spot for you…
