Join our team: 3D Visual Designer

Are you interested in working with leading technology in a challenging position and in an international environment? We are looking for a full-time 3D Visual Designer for our office in Lahti, Finland, to create technical visualisations and animations of our products.

Galvatek is one of the world’s leading suppliers of surface treatment plants, having delivered over 600 plants over the past 40 years. Galvatek offers a comprehensive customer-based service, from the initial design to a turnkey delivery, plus maintenance and spare parts services. The latest technology and our long experience ensure the quality and reliability of Galvatek plants.

Job description

You will support sales by creating plant layout drawings, 3D models and renderings of our equipment. The tools you will be using include Autodesk Autocad, Inventor and 3ds Max. You should have at least a basic understanding of Autocad, which we use for planning factory layouts. Your primary tool, however, will be 3ds Max, so you should be fluent in the use of this software. We use 3ds Max to pre-design and implement our offer modelling, rendering and animations. In addition, Photoshop/Illustrator is often required for post-production.

In addition to 3D modelling, your job may require other graphic artist skills, such as graphic design, illustrations, image processing and creating various sales materials. Experience in producing visual contents and publishing them online will be considered an advantage.

What we expect from you

We expect you to have an uncompromising attitude and the ambition to keep raising the bar a little higher. You are never satisfied with the easiest or most familiar solution but instead are keen to improve your work and develop your own skills. You will become the leading expert in your field within Galvatek, so we expect you to be proactive and independent. At the same time, you will be a team player and willing to offer your expertise for use by our sales team, engineers and customers.

The majority of our customers are in the aviation industry, so they demand the highest quality and utmost punctuality. Responding to the needs of our customers is always the priority and may require an extra effort from our employees at times.

Most of us at Galvatek are engineers, but we expect you to bring to Galvatek also your creative thinking and visual eye. Your job will be to present the surface treatment plants we design in the most appealing and illustrative way.

We expect you to have the following software skills:

  • 3ds Max, modelling and rendering – very good skills
  • Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator – previous experience
  • Inventor /Autocad or Solidworks/Vertex – previous experience
  • MS Office tools – fluent

Work experience: We appreciate any experience in modelling and visualising technical equipment. If you have experience in other kinds of creative design work, we expect you to have an understanding and interest in mechanics. Extensive work experience is not mandatory, and the job may be suitable also for recent graduates if you have the expected skills and attitude.

Education: A polytechnic/university of applied sciences-level education in engineering, technical visualisations, product design or similar is expected.

Language skills: This job requires fluent English language skills, as many of our customers, colleagues and partners communicate in English.

What we offer you

We offer you a full-time employment relationship and the opportunity of a long career. You will get to work in the aviation industry and an international business environment.
You will be given an independent and responsible position in which you can develop. We always use the latest tools. We offer you a nice work environment, flexibility to manage both your professional and private lives, and excellent work colleagues.
