We are Loop 

We redefine what an earplug should sound, look and feel like. Whether it’s hearing protection or comfort for your ears, Loop enables you to live life at your volume. Our founders Maarten and Dimitri started Loop back with a big idea. And a chronic ringing in their ears. Since then, we’ve helped more than 1,000,000 customers around the world to find quiet, enjoy great experiences and keep unwanted noises at bay. Our team has grown to nearing 100+ staff and counting, with our Headquarters is based in Antwerp, with many employees dotted across Europe and the world. 

Not to brag about it, but we've recently been named the fastest-growing technology company in Belgium (according to Deloitte - October 2022 awards), and The New York Times named us ‘best earplugs for concerts and thousands of noise-sensitive customers call us ‘a life changer’. Pretty cool, right?

Hi – we’re Loop. And we make earplugs.

Now we know what you’re thinking – what’s so good about earplugs? But we’re not talking about the stereotypical dull, bland, squishy kind that barely drown out the sound of a fly. Nope – we’re talking about the iconic, sound-enhancing kind. Where people are free to lose themselves in every moment. At their own volume and in their own style.

Loop is growing. We’re getting bigger and better, bringing new products to the market, and consistently working on new product development projects. And as we grow and bring our product portfolio to the next level, we need more top-quality people like you to work alongside us and help push us closer to our full potential.

So what about you? We’ve got a picture-perfect, dream mechanical engineering lead in our minds – and we’re hoping you’re the reality. Someone who loves applying their creativity, mechanical intuition, and analytical skills to solve design challenges collaboratively. Someone who can build and work within a creative and diverse team. Someone who people look to for guidance and inspiration.

 

Your leadership and communication ring clear

Now we know that you don’t mean to brag, but you’re a damn good leader.

Since you started working with Loop, you’ve utilized your experience to build and manage a team of rock-star mechanical engineers.

You spend your days helping your team in their roles, making sure there aren't any bottlenecks in the projects, and coaching them to further develop their skills. And don’t forget helping to manage regular interaction with peers and senior management across operations and engineering.

If there’s one thing that people say about you, it’s that you know the right person for the right job, and you’re never caught empty-handed. You consistently have backup resources, your team has a quality and high output, and you’re constantly improving the product development process – thanks for that!

Your team loves you. You’re collaborative and inclusive, you’ve got top-notch communication skills, and you’re always inspiring excellence – because you lead from the front. And who doesn’t love a good front leader?!

 

Your experience is music to our ears

It’s clear to see that you’ve been around the block a few times. You’ve got a degree in mechanical engineering or a similar field, and you’ve got proven, tangible experience as a manager or technical lead of a mechanical design team. Not only that, but you also have a proven track record of supporting the most challenging of NPI projects.

Your experience includes working with consumer goods, electronic goods, injection molding, and proven experience using CAD software, ideally Creo. Plus, you’re a dab hand when it comes to analytics and engineering fundamentals in solid mechanics, mechanical systems design, and tolerance analysis.

Honestly, you’ve got it all.

There’s no problem or mechanical mystery that you can’t solve, or at least have a good ol’ crack at. That’s on top of your experience in DFMEA, failure analysis, and root-cause investigation of multidisciplinary problems. A Sherlock Homes mixed with MacGyver type if you will.

And don’t even get us started on your safety standards. Your excellent attention to detail and understanding of the environmental impact of a design meant that we managed to minimize risk, and ensure the safety of our team – and the planet.

 

We think this could be the start of something special. But before we shake hands, there are a couple of non-negotiable requirements that we have:

  • You’re confident, have strong presentation skills – both written and verbal – and you’re fluent in English. If you speak any other languages then that would be pretty cool too.
  • You’re able to work in our Antwerp office (Posthofbrug 6/8, 2600 Berchem). It’s where our product development team is based. And since you'll be working with a physical product, we’d want you to be there to work with the creative team.

Why join us? 

  • We’re Belgium’s fastest-growing technology company (according to Deloitte - awarded October 2022), and we want you to grow and improve alongside us.
  • Our culture? We’re all about enabling growth by giving our team full autonomy to manage their own projects, be a thought leader, and truly make an impact on the company. 
  • We take care of our people. So, we pay them what they’re worth. Expect a competitive pay in the top 20% of the market rate for your level of experience and potential.
  • Also: Senegal. The location of our last team building… just saying. Previous years spent in Iceland & Malta.
  • Flexibility: For us, hybrid and flexible working is all about trust. And we trust you to get on with your job, so there’ll be no micromanaging or peeking over your shoulder from us.
  • Benefits: Our benefits are all aimed towards looking after your health, and enabling you to live life to the fullest. So everything from health insurance and pension savings to lunch vouchers, cruising credits and the latest tools is covered.
