Alfen Almere




Meer dan 3 jaar

Do you enjoy developing software and do you like unravelling complex questions? Do you see it as a challenge to work on the developments of the energy transition of the future? Then we at Alfen have the challenge for you!


What will you be doing?

Our software team works (within the R&D department) on software for charge points. On the one hand to control the charging process, but also to automatically distribute power between charge points and to be able to monitor it remotely. Other software departments within Alfen are working on software for our Smart Grid Solutions and for The Battery (energy storage systems).

As an Embedded Software Engineer, your specialisation, drive and solution-orientation make you the person who enjoys taking on responsibility within development projects. Typical issues you will be faced with include: optimising energy storage, linking charging points to energy storage systems and the ability to remotely manage and control our systems. These issues require innovative solutions. You work within multidisciplinary project teams and your strong communication skills enable you to adapt well to changing situations.

What do we offer you technically?

For the enthusiasts, some more technical details: we have various projects in which a C/C++ application runs on a light-weight OS (FreeRTOS, MbedOS). The STM32/ARM microprocessors also run on our own hardware. We also develop C++/Python applications on (embedded) Linux using our own Yocto build.

We develop mostly in Eclipse or Visual Studio Code and use Git (Bitbucket) as version control system where code is always reviewed by team members. As a Scrum team we use Jira for our tickets. Design and documentation is mainly done in Confluence.

Furthermore, we maintain a mobile app (React Native) and a Windows application (C#) with which our charging stations can be set up and various tools (C#) that are used during assembly and testing of our charging stations.

Fast laptop included!

What do we ask from you?

You are passionate about your profession and know how to use your personality and knowledge to add value to the team. You also know how to communicate naturally with various levels within the organisation. For this position, we are looking for an independent, ambitious colleague with a no-nonsense mentality. Furthermore, you recognise yourself in the following profile:

You have at least 3 years experience with the development of Embedded software in C and/or C++
Knowledge of Python, C#, Git, Linux, FreeRTOS, MbedOS, STM32/ARM is an advantage
