Would you like to be the connecting link between various disciplines within our R&D department? Do you see it as a challenge to be the center for technology in the development of our (future) products? And would you like to work in the heart of the energy transition? Then we are looking for you!

Within our Research & Development (R&D) department, we work amongst others, with specialist teams in the disciplines of software, electrical, (power) electronics and mechanical engineering. The disciplines are brought together in development projects, where new unique products are realized and existing products are innovated.

As a Systems engineer, you will form a tandem with the project manager. Whereas the project manager focuses on controlling the overall project, the systems engineer focuses on the technology within a project. Here, the focus is on the overall product and requirement management. Furthermore, you will work closely with the product manager and be the connecting link between stakeholders and the R&D project manager, technology manager, principal architects and engineers.

Your duties will include:

  • Translating stakeholder requirements into high-level system requirements by consulting with various disciplines;
  • Realizing a high-level product architecture in cooperation with the technology manager, principal architects and (lead) engineers;
  • Translating the product architecture into subsystem requirements, together with the various disciplines;
  • Directing the engineers on a technical level to achieve an integrated and validated end solution;
  • Recognizing technical risks and come up with mitigation measures;
  • Together with the project manager, you are responsible for achieving technical objectives and possible mitigation measures, while keeping lead time, costs and quality manageable;
  • Responsible for the final completion of the construction file.

What we offer:

We present you with an intellectually stimulating and hands-on challenge right at the heart of the energy transition. You will have an independent and impactful role with room for personal input, innovation, and initiative. Alfen is a rapidly growing company that is dedicated to capturing the energy market and leading the way in the energy transition. All this is accompanied by a pleasant, open, and informal work atmosphere, where work-life balance is valued.

We provide a comprehensive benefits package, including a phone and a laptop, and you will enjoy 27 vacation days along with 13 additional ADV (Additional Days of Leave) per year. Moreover, you will join a team of motivated colleagues who are eager to share their expertise, and we will provide you with opportunities for continuous professional development.
