Mechanical Engineers


Meerhout, VAN, BE

Company:  ExxonMobil

Who are we?



We are more than just one of the largest energy companies in the world. ExxonMobil is a place where we believe people should think independently, take initiative, grow to their full potential and help shape the future of energy. Diversity drives innovation and we are committed to providing an inclusive workplace where everyone can thrive, regardless of their background. The safety and wellbeing of our employees is at the heart of everything we do.



We are offering a position as Mechanical Engineer at our polymer plant in Meerhout Polymers Plant, which is a chemical site that produces a variety of (specialty) polyethylene copolymer grades.



The production process builds on proprietary ExxonMobil Technology, in which ethylene gas is compressed to >2500bar before reaction occurs into a reactor. The hot polymer is subsequently cut into pellets (and packaged) before transportation to the customers.



Due to the wide variety of equipment, the technical difficulties of working at high gas pressures and the production of specialty grades, this manufacturing site creates a challenging environment for engineers to learn and to develop themselves.



As a mechanical engineer you are the “technical” owner of part of the equipment at our manufacturing site. Since MPP is a medium size organization, you will have a large area of responsibility for a significant fleet of equipment as a mechanical engineer.



You are responsible to solve problems in close collaboration with engineering specialists, operations and maintenance colleagues to ensure safe, environmentally responsible, reliable and cost effective operation of the equipment. You will be responsible to drive improvements that may lead to new capital projects.



You will be part of a highly competent, diverse, young and international team in which different engineering disciplines are combined. In addition, you will participate in a network that combines engineers of the same discipline at ExxonMobil sites across the region.



We offer a wide range of benefits including competitive pay, colleagues who support and inspire you, the flexibility to explore multiple challenges and roles. Thrive in our company culture: open, with an international mindset and down to earth. Our hands-on approach, job rotation system and regular training will enable you to learn and develop your talents continuously. 



The philosophy at ExxonMobil is to hire people for a career and several career paths exist (e.g. technical specialist / managerial / business). Many opportunities await in the coming years as we adapt our facilities and business to the energy transition.
