Job opportunity: Naval Architect (English)

The vacancy

Our policy is to involve all employees as much as possible in all activities. This ultimately means a varied job, with activities in the field of software development, design consultancy, hull shape design, naval architectural calculations, as well as performing inclining tests and software installations on board ships and providing software support and courses. Additionally, non-technical work is also part of this job, e.g. exhibition presentations, development of documentation, maintaining customer contacts and drawing up quotations.

However, in general it may take some time to master the skills in all areas, so the initial focus will be on performing naval architectural calculations and contributing to the design work.

Desired education and experience:

  • Bachelor or master level in naval architecture or maritime technology.
  • Preferably some years of relevant experience.
  • Good communication skills, both oral and written, in English (and preferably also working knowledge of Dutch).
  • Independence and a customer-oriented, flexible attitude.
  • Accuracy and feeling for numbers.
  • Experience with PIAS is an advantage.
  • Experience with software development is an advantage, but not required.
