Do you want to contribute to a green planet for a better world? Electricity is increasingly generated by renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and bio energy. Alfen offers various solutions for the transformation, storage and distribution of sustainable electrical energy.

What are you going to do?

Creative Senior Front-end developer / UX designer

Do you see it as a challenge to work on the developments of the energy transition for the future? Then we, at Alfen, have the challenge for you. As a Senior Font-End Developer you design and implement thoughtful designs to optimize the user experience of our SCADA Platform. You know how to translate customer wishes into requirements. Based on this, you design the User Interface for the HMI on our installations and SCADA Platform. If necessary, you can make wireframes or a proof of concept.

As a Front-end Developer you are - within our multidisciplinary R&D department - in the scrum team involved in the design, development and maintenance of our SCADA Platform. You do this for our various innovative and smart products (including energy storage systems, transformer stations and charging points for electric cars). The SCADA Platform system is used to control, monitor and test our various products via an extensive user interface.

Your knowledge and expertise allow us to manage real-time and gain insight into critical infrastructure (end-to-end), including configuration management, object management, real-time measurements and integration of external solutions. Together with your colleagues and with the application of the latest technologies (such as "Smart grids" and "Internet of Things"), you ensure that our development takes shape.

Some of your duties are:
• Designing, developing and maintaining Front-End software that communicates with technical systems (energy storage systems and charging stations);
• Testing the extent to which the functional and graphic needs fit within the available or intended front-end architecture;
• Translating graphic designs into a well thought-out combination of HTML, CSS and JavaScript;
• Support in the execution of system tests and user acceptance tests
• Drawing up and maintaining necessary (functional) documentation, such as manuals.

What do we offer you?

An independent and responsible job with room for personal input, new ideas and initiatives and entrepreneurship. Alfen is a fast-growing company that is conquering the market with a clear focus and is focused on the energy transition. And all this in a pleasant, open and informal working atmosphere, where, in addition to work, activities are part of the Alfen culture. You can think of a bowling evening, visit to the Almere City matches, mudflat hiking, etc.
It goes without saying that we offer you a suitable package of employment conditions and we give you opportunities to develop as a professional, and you also have passionate colleagues who are willing to share knowledge so that you can develop further.

What do we ask of you?

You are passionate about your profession and know how to add value to the team with your personality and knowledge. For this challenging position we are looking for a quality-oriented team player who is solution-oriented, driven and communicative. Furthermore, you recognize yourself in the following profile:

• You have completed a relevant HBO or WO education;
• You have at least 5 years of experience with Front-End / HMI / SCADA development;
• You have excellent knowledge of HTML, SASS / CSS, JavaScript and Ember.js, Angular or React;

• You have experience / affinity with (power) electronics and industrial automation;
• You have a good command of the Dutch and English language, both orally and in writing;

Because you will be working in our R&D department, a background check and a VOG for this role could be part of the procedure.
