What is Konligo

Are you tired of the same old boring events that leave a huge carbon footprint? Konligo is here to save the day!

Our start-up is on a mission to revolutionize the event industry and make it more sustainable. How do we do it? By creating innovative, reusable pop-up structures made of recycled aluminium and fully assembled in Belgium. These structures have some pretty amazing benefits. Not only can they be set up in a matter of minutes (depending on the size), but they also have a long lifespan, making them perfect for multi-use events. And the best part? They’re totally customizable, so you can give your events a unique and unforgettable look.

What is the job about

Konligo is seeking a highly skilled and motivated individual to join our R&D team as a Structural Engineer.

In this role, you will be responsible for developing new scissor shapes and optimizing and automating our engineering software and scripts. The goal is to provide tailor-made, sustainable shapes for our clients in a more sustainable, efficient and cost-effective manner.

As a Structural Engineer at Konligo, you will be working closely with a small team consisting of a Product Engineer, one to two R&D interns, and two part-time engineering professors (co-founders of Konligo). You will have the opportunity to make a real impact as we transition to a project-based business model focused on providing a full experience with our sustainable products. If you are passionate about sustainability and have the skills and experience to excel in this role, we encourage you to apply.

Your main tasks will be

  • Designing, Calculating and Analysing new shapes and materials
    • Design of new feasible scissor shapes by using Rhinoceros 3D and Grasshopper
    • Structural Analysis of new designed shapes or different materials using SCIA Engineering
    • Structural Size & Shape Optimisation using MATLAB and Python
    • Building of wooden models to test the feasibility of the designs
    • Close collaboration with our Product Engineer for the prototyping.
  • Preparing the future “R-evolution” back-end software of Konligo
    • Understanding and improving the different design scripts we have.
    • Linking the different scripts we have between Grasshopper, Rhino & SCIA to automate the design process of new scissor structures.
    • Adding a new part about 3D components and technical drawings for production.
  • Helping the sales & marketing team with beautiful renders
    • Creating efficient and fast renders for customers with their own visuals.
    • Creating visuals to show the endless creativity of Konligo products.
  • Searching for sustainable alternative for our cover materials
    • We are currently mainly using PVC and PES banners and membranes, but we want to have a more sustainable approach where only circular can be used. You will take the lead to look for test these alternatives.
  • Supporting the team with your expertise and willingness to help changing the event sector
    • You’re brain, hands and energy will be needed for all kind of other stuff like for the production of our products, the installations for customers, brainstorming about new business idea’s, etc.

What we look for

It is always better to come to the office and see your colleagues smiling!

So we look for someone optimistic and enthusiastic but also with the following competences:

  • You have an engineering background (architecture, civil or mechanical engineer), and/or work experience in that domain
  • You know how Grasshopper works and did already some programming (visual programming, phython, etc.)
  • You are not afraid to switch between intellectual and manual work.
  • You have a good English level
  • You are fascinated by our vision and mission and are willing to work in a start-up with a family spirit.
  • You like working in a team and you dare to speak your own mind.
  • You are independent, proactive and confident.
  • You like challenges, which is why you do not choose a traditional job and prefer to work for a start-up with all its advantages and disadvantages.
  • You are flexible. If necessary, you can work long hours to achieve your goals (this is certainly not a habit with us).
  • Status is not so important to you, but the impact we have with our product is. You therefore integrate a team where everyone is equal and respects each other. We don’t have a classical hierarchy 😉
  • You realise that sustainability is important, and that it is more and more about the positive impact one can achieve, and less about money.
  • If possible: you have experience with scissor structures.

What we offer

  • A permanent contract
  • A professional experience in a small, friendly team in Brussels
  • A stimulating environment (start-up and event industry) and a rewarding position with immediate impact in the company development
  • A company that actively lives through its core values and focuses on the professional but also personal growth of its team members
  • An ambitious project with lots of opportunities
  • Flexible working schedule (working from home when possible, flexible hours, etc.), according to a start-up mindset 😊

Office & workshop location : Bergensesteenweg 95, 1070 Anderlecht
