About the position of Trainee System Engineer

Do you have ambition; but you are still not sure in which direction you want to go?
Do you want to learn, discover, travel, innovate and combine all of that with your passion for technology? Then Huisman is offering a unique opportunity for you. You will start by working as Installation, Commissioning & Testing Engineer to get a good feel for both theory and practice. You will also get the opportunity to operate Huisman’s systems, working with our Engineers to explore innovative ways to improve and optimise our techniques. From there, you will have the chance to develop into System Engineer in robotics, computer architecture, electrical power, measurement technology, geo-energy and more.

One day you are at the office, laptop in front of you, or at a meeting. The next, you are working on an installation equipped with complex drive systems, secondary hydraulics, large-scale robotics, or a heave system. The aim of this process is to help you get a clear picture of our various departments, so that we can provide further training/education that helps you get where you want to go.

There are countless opportunities at Huisman and our goal is to 'Make it Happen' We will work with you to map out your career path and find out where your natural abilities lie. Naturally, we expect you to be able to handle strict project aims, just as we expect you to be available for travel or weekend work. All these efforts should ultimately lead to the delivery of an excellent, high-quality product,
produced as a team!

We would also like to point out the other advantages of working at Huisman, such as the opportunity to contribute to groundbreaking innovations, an excellent employment conditions package and regular drinks in our own bar.

Wondering if you are 'equipped for impact'?

You have:

  • A Bachelor and Master degree, preferably in a technical area (Complex Systems Engineering and Management; Systems & Control; Embedded Systems; Offshore & Dredging; Electrical Power; Energy Technology; Aerospace Engineering);
  • A broad technical interest in Control Technology (PLCs and inverters);
  • The ability to adapt quickly to new requirements;
  • Experience with Step7/Tia as a plus;
  • The knowledge on how to prioritize;
  • The flexibility to travel, if necessary internationally;

Some practical things we need you to have:

  • An EU passport/valid work permit for the Netherlands;
  • A good command of the English language verbally and in writing.
