Project Engineer
Location: Lille, Nord, France

Picnic has a fully integrated just-in-time supply chain process. Orders are picked by our shoppers in one of our Fulfilment Centers (FCs) and are then shipped to one of our Hubs. From the Hubs, the groceries are delivered to our customers with our iconic electric Picnic vehicles.

As our operations continue to grow, we need to ensure that the processes within our FCs and Hubs run smoothly. Additionally, we have to develop new locations and equipment to take our service to the next level. We are looking for a Project Engineer who loves to take ownership of our challenging and innovative building & equipment projects.

Where you fit in

As our Project Engineer, you’re part of the team that’s responsible for Picnic’s physical world. The Building & Equipment team organizes the building of new FCs and Hubs and makes sure all the right equipment is there. You will work with our Facility Managers, Project Engineers, the Building & Equipment team lead and many other internal and external stakeholders. You will travel frequently between different Picnic locations in France.

With your experience and forward-thinking ideas, you will play a lead role in (re)building and launching highly optimized FCs, as well as coordinating (sub)contractors for Picnic’s innovative automated FC. Next to this, you will be working on optimization and maintenance projects for the manual FCs and Hubs. The result of your work will help us to improve our operations and ensure that all of our customers continuously experience our top of the bill Picnic service. Your efforts will help all of our (3000+) employees to work safely and comfortably. You can really make an impact!
