We look upon each individual co-worker as a talent and work with an inclusive approach to create a better everyday life for the many people. At IKEA Components we apply innovation to make things better and automation to grow, and we constantly challenge ourselves to be proactive and develop our business. Design for environment is critical for us and we are on a journey to cater for a sustainable future – are you curious to join us?

My name is Frida and I work as a Range and Engineering Manager! As a Requirement & Design Engineer (RDE) in my team you will be working with a great team of engineers.

Come and join us!

Job description

Among other things, you will be responsible for the design of components or functions using CAD; secure quality by setting the relevant legal and functional requirements; and perform test and verification. An important part of your assignment is to maintain and secure that the information in our PLM system is up to date and accurate.

You will work with improvements of the existing range of components by proactively searching for opportunities to challenge known patterns. You will work in close collaboration with your team and different stakeholders across the organization.


To succeed and shine in this role we are looking for you who have studied mechanical engineering or equivalent and have experience in working with product development. It is meriting if you have knowledge in different materials such polymers and/or steel, and different production methods. You have skills in SolidWorks or other corresponding CAD software, and basic knowledge in PLM systems. Furthermore, you have elementary knowledge with strength calculations (FEA). 

As a person you are down to earth, solution oriented and self-driven. You can work with product documentation, even when it becomes repetitive, but you can also be practical and get things done. You hold a curiosity that will lead you and others forward in the unknown. You communicate in a clear and an open-minded way and you can build relations. In your mind, a failure is just another idea that did not work out and you are not afraid to try, again and again.

IKEA is a truly global environment with colleagues from all over the world and therefore you need to be able to speak and write in English.
