Working at Lightyear is a unique experience. You get the opportunity to work for a company with a pure and meaningful mission. A mission that will make a positive and lasting impact on future generations.
What will you do as Group Lead Testing Organization?
As Group Lead within Testing, part of the Technology Circle, you know how to keep your cool. Having an overview of all your daily tasks and meetings, therefore, comes naturally to you. With that in mind, you start your day wrapping your head around your agenda. Which meeting requires preparation? Which team member deserves some extra attention today? Who can I give time to work on the test facilities roadmap?
The rest of the day will be very different each day again: we never had a dull day at Lightyear yet and we hope this will not happen anytime soon. You are the person that will inspire, motivate and build a strong and healthy team. Your ambition is to put people in their strength and develop themselves accordingly.
What do we expect from a Group Lead Testing Organization at Lightyear?
To succeed in the dynamic world of Lightyear, pro-activity, professionalism, communication, and adaptability are crucial. In addition, we are looking for someone with an ambitious attitude who learns from the past (tried and tested) but who is especially open to transforming new developments or ideas into the "tried and tested" of the future! You are also someone with a high sense of responsibility and a cooperative attitude. Furthermore, you'll bring:
A pre would be in testing, simulation, in virtualization, in leadership training
You act as a leader with a bird’s eye view
CAE or simulation or correlation software knowledge is almost a must. Programming or data management skills are a pre
Excellent communication skills in English and Dutch (preferred)
What can you expect from Lightyear?
In addition to a challenging role we also offer:
Lightyear is an innovative and progressive scale-up with one mission: clean mobility for everyone, everywhere.

Officially established in 2016 by 5 visionaries with the dream to make this groundbreaking technology accessible to everyone, everywhere. In order to accelerate the transition towards a truly sustainable solution for mobility, we believe that it is necessary to completely rethink automotive design by starting from scratch, not limited by industry conventions.
At Lightyear, we all strive for the same goal. We have a team with diverse skill sets and backgrounds; all working tirelessly towards clean mobility for everyone, everywhere. We’re proud of our culture and live up to our core values: think independently, be bold, deliver the change, put people first and take responsibility. Our shared vision is what unites and drives us.
