Your challenge
In this new role, you’ll build and lead Fyron’s packaging engineering capabilities.

Package optimization, Sustainability and consumer experience are themes that spark your interest. Everything you know about packaging will prove to be valuable in this role and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to apply that to our wide range of products.  

The role

You’ll also work closely with the Quality Manager, the Customer Service teams and Sourcing team to find out challenges and discover new possibilities.

  • Bachelor’s degree in Packaging Engineering, Industrial Design, Mechanical Engineering, or a related field. Advanced degree preferred;

Who are we?
Fyron was born from a collaboration between 200° Fahrenheit and OFYR. A passion for outdoor cooking and innovative product design led to the creation of The Bastard, Grill Guru and Grizzly Grills brands, making us one of the biggest players in the European ceramic barbecue market. OFYR is at the heart of an entirely new wood-fired cooker, which allows people to cook plancha style on the plate, an extremely social and spectacular experience.

At Fyron, we want people to connect with each other. Our products are designed to bring people together, a value that we also uphold in our workplace. We are driven by passion, solidarity, genuine enthusiasm and a playful mindset, which we use to work towards a common goal. We have a winner's mentality and settle for nothing but the best. We believe in strong and sustainable partnerships with our colleagues, clients and our global network.

Working at Fyron means working as a team to realize the growth of our brands. We help each other through difficulties and make time to celebrate successes. We are a company that constantly evolves and grows. We invest in our people, equipment and systems. The atmosphere is informal, but everyone has a healthy ambition and common goal. We also make time for fun outings, after-work drinks and, of course, fun barbecue evenings.

Then we would like to receive your CV and motivation! You can send it via our online application form. Please tell us everything you think we should know about; projects you are proud of, successes, etc. For questions or more information about the position, please contact our R&D Manager Bobby Adriaansens via If you have any questions about the procedure please contact our HR Recruiter Willemijn via
