Do you enjoy developing software? Do you want to be responsible for large energy projects? Do you want to deal with innovative issues within the energy transition? Then we have the challenge for you!

As a senior software engineer, you will help us build the operating system for our battery storage systems. This system connects the batteries to the electricity grid, to solar farms, wind turbines and anywhere else where diesel generators can't really be used. The demand for these systems is growing rapidly and the technical developments are going very fast. So the focus within this role is not only on existing products, but also on making designs for new products.

The operating system is now written in C, python and linux, speaks many network protocols, covers an extensive codebase and is secure. These issues require innovative software-driven solutions. For the role of senior software engineer, we are looking for a passionate professional who can meet these challenges. Someone who enjoys sharing knowledge with other engineers so that the team's craftsmanship can be further improved.

With the R&D department we are making a transition to a renewed architecture. As a software engineer, you have an important role in this process. You work within multidisciplinary project teams and your strong communication skills enable you to quickly switch with other professionals. In this role you will work in our research and development department, focusing on the energy storage systems business unit (TheBattery). You will work in an enthusiastic team consisting of about 5 different developers.

What do we offer you?

An independent and responsible job with room for personal input, new ideas, initiatives and entrepreneurship.

All this takes place in a pleasant, open and informal working atmosphere where, in addition to work, activities are also part of Alfen's culture. This could include an online escaperoom or fun quiz with accompanying snacks, and if the weather permits: a bowling night, a visit to Almere City games, mudflat hiking, and more.

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