Oatly is a company built on the idea of change. Our mission is to help people upgrade their everyday lives and the health of the planet by making tasteful oat-based food products accessible to a wider audience in a world-class manner. It's why we come to work every day. And because health and sustainability are so close to our heart, we are more than just another food company – we are a lifestyle company.


Our growth is fast - and accelerating. More and more people choose to switch to a plant-based diet for the sake of their health and the planet. That’s why we are looking for a Maintenance Manager to provide hands-on technical and professional leadership in establishing, refining and administration of equipment reliability and preventive maintenance programs for all equipment and building systems. 



Here are the things we want to hire you to do:  

  • Lead and develop Maintenance Technicians across all shifts to maintain building and equipment to ensure optimal performance and reduction of planned and unplanned downtime 
  • Daily communications with Production, QA and all other departments to resolve technical and/or operational issues, assign resources to address various performance problems and coordinate the planning and scheduling of support activities 
  • Continuous improvement and administration of PM/PPM programs for all equipment and building systems 
  • Establish, refine and administer parts room inventory programs for adherence to budgets while maintaining availability of necessary parts and optimization of stocking levels of parts for all equipment and building systems 
  • Continuous improvement and administration of training programs to develop skills and abilities of assigned staff 
  • Coordination and supervision of outside contractors for projects and maintenance support activities 
  • Participating in engineering improvement projects to current and future processes, including cost-reduction, manufacturability, functionality, and quality 
  • Ensure Maintenance Department compliance with all company policies and procedures 


You are a self-starter who doesn’t need direct supervision to motivate you for success – we believe strongly in building a culture of individual accountability and ownership and need partners that can embrace that mentality. 

  • Minimum of 5-7 years’ experience as a Maintenance Supervisor.
  • Technical/Engineering Degree or equivalent experience.
  • 5+ years’ experience in production facility, preferably in food manufacturing. 
  • Knowledge of and experience working with automated control systems.
  • Experience with automated packaging and palletizing systems.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in both Dutch and English. You are able to interact effectively with people in all departments and at all levels.



We welcome people from all backgrounds who see sustainability and health as important values. If you have the curiosity, passion and collaborative spirit, work with us and let’s do this together! It will be fun!
