  • You guarantee standardized working methods within the department and ensure that subcontractors work in accordance with department standards;
  • You supervise and document acceptance tests at subcontractors. You are also involved in commissioning automation systems on board of our ships;
  • You are innovative and open to exploring and implementing new technologies and methods.

Job requirements

You are a driven person who can function independently within your own field. You are open to input and can collaborate effectively with other disciplines thanks to your communication skills. You are able to convey complex technical information in an understandable way to non-technical stakeholders and provide reports for management. Do you also meet the requirements below? Then apply by completing the form below!

  • You have at least HBO working and thinking level;
