Are you a Fire Protection engineer looking for a wide range of tasks in a growing, solid industry? Do you want to work for a mission-driven, global company which makes the world a safer place? You describe yourself as organized and well structured, are familiar with project work and can quickly find alternative solutions?

If the answer is “yes”, then read on!

We are a global certifier for all UL brands, EN and CE certifications. UL Solutions has extensive business units ranging from fire protection, medical technology and safety to materials science. We thus make a significant contribution to global product safety in every conceivable industry.

Depending on the product category, many manufacturers can or must provide proof of certain tests or certifications for their products in order to be able to sell them on the global market. And this is precisely where we support our customers by allowing them to certify their products with us. The certification processes are very complex and require the expertise of our engineers and their ability to adapt to various technical, organizational and human-generated situations in order to offer our customers the best possible service.

As our global footprint continues to spread across the world, we are looking for a Certification Engineer Fire Suppression Products (m/f/d) to join our Built Environment team in Neu-Isenburg, Germany or Barcelona, Spain (both hybrid roles)


In this role you will operate in the scope of UL certifications with the specific, additional option of EN standards. In more detail:

Questioning: It is important to us that our engineers objectively scrutinize and check the relevance of all requests and steps throughout the project.

Provide support in the preparation of quotations: As an expert, you determine the necessary steps so that Sales can offer these to our customers.

Creating project plans, including reporting: As a project engineer, you know that good and precise planning is the key to success. Regular, condensed reporting to management is part of this.

Planning of tests in internal/ external laboratories: Coordination with our worldwide laboratories is required for the necessary tests.

Regular review and adherence to planned time frames: Projects are always time-bound for us. Of course, who likes to wait for their results to be completed! That’s why each of our engineers is fully responsible for their deadlines. You could say that structure and order are the be-all and end-all in this job.

Plan and carry out tests with customers (witness test): Some tests cannot be carried out in our own laboratories. Our engineers travel to customers or external laboratories to carry out the tests on site. Therefore, business trips are also part of the job.

Creating the necessary documentation: For us, no project is complete without the necessary documentation! Especially as a certifier, our documents must be complete, up-to-date and correct. You’ve come to the right place if that’s your thing!

Supporting the Team and the Management: Helping with audits in the form off data revision etc., identifying potential for improvement, drawing up training plans, later mentoring new colleagues.

Expand customer contact and network with customers: In order to offer our customers the best possible service, “networking” is part of the job. As an expert, this is a matter of course for you.

This could be your profile:

  • A technical Engineering degree (at least a Bachelor’s degree), specializing in Safety Engineering/Fire Protection Engineering or similar is an advantage
  • Experience in certification processes is an advantage
  • Experience in project work and Project Management (time management, Gantt etc.), as well as process-optimization skills
  • Quick-learning ability
  • Meticulosity and analytical thinking
  • Broad technical interdisciplinary knowledge 
  • Customer centric approach
  • Excellent communication skills working in a global environment, paired with confidence towards internal and external stakeholders
  • Written and spoken English is absolutely essential
  • Willingness to travel, up to approx. 25%
