  • Cost reduction projects

Specific work tasks

Some of the specific tasks could be:

  • Close collaboration with process and control engineers to design the electrolysis unit with the right control valves
  • Design and technology development of demanding valve applications, maintaining current design, materials, and components and development of new features and products
  • Qualification of new suppliers

Success criteria

First, it is vital to understand the system. Second, you will be a success as GHS’s Valve Expert if you contribute to the development of the existing solutions as well as drive the development of new ground-breaking products and solutions.


You hold a degree in mechanical, process, thermal engineering or similar.

You have solid experience with valves for controlling of gas systems or similar, both pneumatic and hydraulic controlled valves. You have previously worked with a valve component supplier or a system integrator, preferably within a production/manufacturing environment where the work involved valves control strategies: electrical and pneumatic, including specification, collection, and selection of the right valves as well as choosing the right materials.

You can demonstrate experience with design and technology development for demanding valve application or have hands on experience with the newest valve technology or valve manifold solutions.

You can communicate in English, verbally and in written.

As a person, you are self-driven, entrepreneurial and exercise initiative. You are result oriented but still hold a strong desire to break existing boundaries and explore new technologies. You have a structured approach to your work but 80/20 % is also accepted by you. You are responsible and can stay focused in a busy environment. You hold a product development mindset.
