What are you going to do?

As an Electrical Design Engineer, you will be working within our Research and Development department. With various technical disciplines, the R&D department is responsible for development inquiries for our three business units: The Battery (Energy Storage Systems), Smart Grid Solutions (Transformer Stations) and Charging Equipment (Charging Stations). In your role, you will be responsible for the elaboration of the electrical concept to a detailed design. Furthermore, you will be working on the maintenance of the product portfolio. This includes selecting alternative components and entering them into EPLAN (P8). In addition, you will have contact with various disciplines in our Research and Development department, but also with production and purchasing.

Next to that, the following tasks belong to your functional profile:

  • Setting up functional specifications and translating them into concrete components;
  • Making the electrical design and electrical schematics in EPLAN (p8);
  • Design the panel layout for the control cabinets in Pro Panel;
  • Being involved in the standardization processes;
  • Investigate the design and safety guidelines, but also the product standards;

An independent and responsible job with room for personal input, new ideas, initiatives and entrepreneurship. Alfen is a fast-growing company that is busy conquering the market with a clear focus on the energy transition. All the above in a pleasant, open and informal working environment, where in addition to work, activities are also part of the Alfen culture. This includes an online escape room or fun quiz with snacks, and when possible: a bowling evening, a visit to the Almere City matches, mudflat hiking, and more.

Of course we offer you an appropriate benefits package including a phone and a laptop and you will be entitled to 27 vacation days + 13 ADV per year. We think it is important that you can relax regularly. In addition, you will work with motivated colleagues who are willing to share knowledge and we give you opportunities to develop as a professional.
