    You pay attention to the details but also don’t hesitate to quickly grab a toolbox, hop on a machine and change it. You enjoy seeing technology at work, a broad interest in science and engineering is natural to you. 
    You communicate clearly. You write and speak well and you like to explain any technical issues to anyone. You are also comfortable in communicating on an international level. You are motivated, driven and you take up new challenges without waiting to be asked. You take ownership of your own task and time you spend with us at TOMRA to make a difference.
