To strengthen our team, we are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Data Processing Engineer.

As a data processing engineer you work in a team that designs, develops and validates advanced signal and data processing algorithms for our radar and electro-optical systems. The team that you will be part of specifically deals with the extraction .

About your future job

The extraction team is the chain-link in the radar system that connects signal processing (SP) and tracking (TRK). It gets as input hits from SP and returns plots to TRK. A plot is a package of information of a possible target. The information that is embedded in a plot is, among other things, estimates of the range, direction of arrival (DOA) i.e. elevation and azimuth, radial velocity, RCS. Hits come from the SP (signal processing). And we extract these quantities from the hits. Extraction is also involved in the radar parameter generation. This incorporates the generation of a set of parameters that is needed for the estimators and clustering

Activities include among others:

  • prototyping and analysis of algorithms;
  • modelling of sensors, objects and their environments;
  • validation and performance analysis of the extraction product and new algorithms;
  • requirement engineering and stakeholder discussions.

Keywords for this job description include:

  • dynamic state estimation;
  • Bayesian processing;
  • Stochastics;
  • model based system engineering (MBSE).

Why you'd be a good match

  • master’s degree in Mathematics, Physics, Electrical Engineering or similar;
  • affinity with algorithm development, statistics or MBSE;
  • knowledge of Matlab/Python and C;
  • you identify with a team player having good communication skills;
  • you are able to work with other teams (e.g. software and test engineers);
  • fluency in spoken and written Dutch and English.

What's in it for you

  • A challenging job in a great team within our high-tech, innovative work environment. Includes the freedom for initiative and good ideas.
  • Room for personal and professional growth within our organisation, for example in regards to technical, commercial or international skills.
  • Valuable international collaboration with coworkers from 68 different countries around the globe.
  • A comfortable work space in a modern environment, with a focus on flexibility and the right work/life balance.
  • You can usually work where and when you want, to be able to do your work as well and efficiently as possible. Within Thales we implement hybrid working, where you can, for example, work from home two days a week if your role allows it.
  • A good salary, fitting travel allowance, and the ability to personalise your employment conditions. For instance, you can trade days off for our bicycle plan or company fitness.
  • 40 days paid-time-off per year. Yes, really.

With 80.000 talents working in 68 countries, we are one of the biggest high-tech employers in the field of safety and security. In the Netherlands, where 2500 employees are based, we are located in four cities: Huizen, Delft, Eindhoven and Hengelo (HQ).
