Do you always have new ideas for ground-breaking hardware design, and would you like the chance to share them in a forum where they can be brought to life? Join GN Audio and become part of project teams where you can contribute with your creativity and grow your skills even further.

Welcome to GN Audio – home of Jabra
At GN Audio in Ballerup, we have cross-functional hardware engineering and product concepting teams. We are dedicated to developing and designing state-of-the-art Jabra headsets, speakerphones and other hands-free audio solutions that make life sound better.

Join our hardware engineering team…

Your tasks include:
- Developing new hardware design
- Carrying out early technical feasibility studies

- Performing value engineering on products
- Participating in on-site support for New Product Introductions at our global production sites up to 20 days per year

Collaborate with our cross-functional concept design team
Whilst working together with the Hardware Engineering team, you may also have a role in our Concept Design team comprised of 10 individuals from varying disciplines. Together, we work on concept exploration for headsets, speakerphones and other hands-free audio products, all representing exciting challenges due to size constraints and need for mobility.

Here, you will function as a hardware lead and contribute with your specialised knowledge to push the boundaries of hardware design.

Work in an environment with the newest technology – and room to play
At GN Audio, you will have access to world-class development tools, R&D laboratories, test facilities and the newest technologies whilst working closely with competent and high-performing colleagues in both Denmark and China.

You are highly self-driven and strive to follow projects all the way through from idea to production. You are furthermore collaborative and enjoy communicating with your colleagues, leaders and stakeholders in an intercultural environment, ensuring that everyone is well-informed on current and future projects.

You bring:
- A degree in electrical engineering or similar
- Solid knowledge of product development including concepting, design, modelling, simulation, verification, test methodologies, analysis and problem-solving of cross-functional issues
