Your Profile

In the Defence & Security business unit we develop software and hardware components for measurement setups in varied application areas. Examples of those developed within the unit include unique GNSS signal quality monitoring systems, navigation system simulations and sensor integration software. Typical work/technologies involve hands on RF hardware integration, Software Defined Radio, signal theory research, signal processing technics application/implementation through software development, RF system analysis and system architecture design. Typical projects are ‘one-offs’ or proof-of-concepts, meaning you need to learn quickly about application domains and think with the customer about solutions.

Common application areas include Defence, Space and Critical Infrastructure. You will need to be able to work and think across domains. Ideally, you are someone who enjoys working in a dynamic, high-tech organization. You enjoy tackling complex engineering challenges together with your colleagues while keeping an overview of a multi-element technical system and looking for the best solution within the budget and time constraints of projects.

Furthermore, you have the following experience:

  • MSc or PhD in Electrical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Applied Physics or similar discipline

  • Excellent command of Python, experience in lower-level programming languages such as C/C++ is a big plus

  • Good understanding of the concepts of signal processing and digital communication

  • Experience with GNSS analysis and/or (satellite) radio communications

  • Comfortable working in Linux

And you recognize yourself in the following traits:

  • You have a strong analytical mind that enjoys coming up with novel and creative solutions
