Together, we keep everyday life moving to build a better tomorrow.


HIAB, a leading provider of motion technology solutions for loader cranes, is building a new team around motion technology and R&D to develop energy-efficient products for battery-operated vehicles, in alignment with Cargotec’s ambitious targets for CO2 reduction. We are in search of an experienced and versatile Engineer to fill a central role in the team and connect with our skilled team in Hudiksvall. The successful candidate will possess a strong background in motion mechanics and will focus on the design, development, and optimization of mechanical systems to contribute to the electrification of road transportation.

Purpose of position:

The team will have the mission to develop new technology and products ranging from electro-hydraulic power units, battery packs, and electromechanical actuators in line with what a developing business will require. While “power packs” and distributed hydraulic systems are fairly established, there needs to be technological advances in the field of electric actuators to make them viable in heavy applications at the very core of HIAB’s loader crane business.

The Senior Electromechanics Developer will play a key role in providing necessary competence and drive pre- development on actuators as well as designing “power packs” and other types of motion mechanics.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Design and develop mechanical systems and components for HIAB’s motion technology products
  • Conduct analysis and simulations to optimize performance and efficiency of mechanical systems, Development of necessary calculus and analytic tools
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to integrate mechanical systems into HIAB’s products and ensure they meet customer requirements
  • Investigate and troubleshoot technical issues related to mechanical systems and provide solutions
  • Stay up-to-date with the latest advances in motion mechanics and apply them to improve HIAB’s products
  • Test and verification of new solutions
  • Producing documentation
  • Main interfaces and stakeholders: Colleagues in R&D, sourcing, product management and production.


  • University degree in mechanical engineering
  • Several years of experience in the development and engineering of industrial products
  • Solid knowledge in electro-mechanics, motion mechanics, materials and structural strength, tribology, and standards and regulatory requirements
  • Experience with gears, transmissions, mechanisms, and acoustic design is a plus
  • Knowledge of European industry standards and regulations is a plus
  • Knowledge and experience in using CAD and simulation software, like Solidworks, ProE, Autodesk Inventor, ADAMS, MATLAB, SIMPACK, ANSYS, ABAQUS, COSMOS
  • Proven ability to work collaboratively in a cross-functional team environment
  • Strong problem-solving skills and attention to detail
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, fluency in English; Swedish and other languages are beneficial
  • Be a passionate, self-propelled engineer with a curious mindset, be well-versed in design tools and methods, be comfortable moving outside the zone of known paradigms, combine creativity with structure and discipline depending on the situation, and have great collaboration skills.


The position could be located either in Hudiksvall, Vallentuna or Kista: frequent traveling to Hudiksvall customer innovation center will be needed for face-to-face collaboration and access to the laboratory.

At HIAB, we value creativity, innovation, and a passion for motion technology. If you’re an experienced Engineer with a strong background in motion mechanics, we’d love to hear from you. Apply today and become part of our growing team of experts at HIAB.
