Do you want to be part of a world-wide-operating team of innovators? And do you have what it takes to make an impact? We are looking for a Technical Documentation Engineer with a Bachelor/HBO degree in a technical area and a good command of the English language both in written and oral form. Experience in writing technical reports is a pre not a must. Yes? Please keep reading. We might have the job you are looking for.


First, let us briefly introduce ourselves.

Pleased to meet you, we are Huisman. We develop step changing technical solutions and translate these into the design and construction of the largest construction equipment. For decades, we have been working all over the world for offshore wind, geothermal, oil & gas, leisure and civil industries. We design and produce in-house and deliver our turn-key products to our clients worldwide. Clients choose us for our entrepreneurial spirit, skills, reliability and innovative solutions. Examples? What to think of the Universal Quick Connector we produced for Jan de Nul. So, if you join Huisman make sure you are equipped for impact. In other words, surprise us, our clients and … yourself!


‘Our impact? Always coming up with innovative solutions.’

Arnold van der Linde, Tender & Concepts Engineer

  • Delivering procedures for commissioning of the equipment, as well as procedures for the acceptance of client and classification society
