We have great opportunities for you in the following career lines:

Systems Engineers and Experimental Physicists

We are always looking for hands-on experimental physicists with experience desigining, building and testing high-tech systems in R&D environments. Our Systems Engineering roles range from spaceflight to semicon, but are always on the cutting edge!

Optical Engineers

Optics are the core of many sensing systems in R&D, whether you have experience at a nano or astronomical scale, we'd love to hear from you. If you have a background in optical engineering, please get in touch so that we can see if there's a good match for you!

Space Systems Project Engineers

Ensuring that one-off technology will work is key to spaceflight, and we regularly have openings in this sector - do you have a technical background and experience in space projects? If so, we'd love to get in touch! We cover roles for systems engineers, AIT and PA engineers, future technology development and testing, mission analysis and more!

Embedded Software Developers

Our sensing and control projects give you an opportunity to work in the most cutting-edge aspects of embedded systems. Whether with nanometre precision instrumentation or advanced control for large-scale industrial applications, we'll keep you on your toes!

Scientific Software Engineers

Our projects will put your software skillset to use on the latest scientific developments! Our team typically works in C++ and/or Python, but we have plenty of space for Django experts and a growing interest in Apache Cassandra experience! 

Defence Hardware Engineers

Defence systems are a growing part of our team's DNA. Do you have an interest and background in defence-related hardware like MMIC or radar systems? If so, we'd love to receive your CV.


Becoming an S[&]T'er

Are you thinking about joining us? Here's what that might look like:

At S[&]T, we enjoy a diverse range of positions, but there are a few things that are similar for all of us. We celebrate fun things with taart. We are client-driven and people-focused. We make use of a network of S[&]T'ers across different types of clients. We work on really cool projects that we are passionate about. We meet every quarter for a company status update, burgers and a 'borrel'. 

Being an S[&]T'er means knowing that you have a friendly group of colleagues just a phone call away. Whether you'd like to ask for a new development server for your project, or when the next group trip to the Efteling is, we'll make sure you're in the know. 

On top of valuing high-tech skillsets, we also value communication and team work, and we try to actively support genuine connections between S[&]T'ers with teambuilding trips and hosted events. We make sure that even our external events are available to S[&]T'ers - so if you have questions, come by and meet our team-members. They'd love to tell you what their day looks like!


Becoming an S[&]T'er is always a multi-step process, and commonly happens as a relationship builds over time. We often see that a candidate isn't quite the right person for whatever role we were initially in contact about, but we see that first contact as just that - the first introduction to who you are and what you are looking for. 

Over time, we keep track of different positions and options that go by, and we will be in touch to evaluate your best matches together. Once we've determined that there is a good match, we typically have a three step process, first you have a quick call with our recruitment team to ensure that everyone is on the same page, then you will speak with an account manager for the position, who will further evaluate the match. Once these two initial evaluations are completed, we involve the technical project team either internally or at our client, and then support the decision making process by yourself and that team as needed. 

After the decision has been made that you should become an S[&]T'er we plan in a final meeting to discuss and finalise your contract, start date, and other practical details leading up to joining our team. If you're needing to move from another country, we'll help you plan for that process, for instance.

The Netherlands is a beautiful country, and we love having our main office in Delft. If you have never lived in the Netherlands before, we certainly understand that you'll need help in your transition to a different culture, climate and way of life. 

Transitions are different for everyone, but what we try to do is support you with an open ear to your specific needs. We've seen it all, from helping choose which school your kids should attend to thinking about where to live in terms of social life versus practical location etc. 

It can be intimidating to tackle the first aspects of settling in a new country, including setting up a bank account, getting your residency paperwork taken care of, finding a good doctor and more. We try to proactively help in these processes for our colleagues who are new to living in the Netherlands.
