Functie omschrijving

As a system engineer infrastructure, you work in an international multidisciplinary team on the specification, design and validation of the infrastructure platform for the combat management command & control system. In the team you are responsible for the technical design and definition of infrastructure work packages, that will be implemented by scrum teams. Activities include amongst others: 

  • Discuss operational needs together with internal project and product development teams;
  • Perform requirements decomposition towards combat system infrastructure building blocks;
  • Define the detailed functional behavior of infrastructure building blocks;
  • Support scrum teams that implement the new functionality of infrastructure building blocks;
  • Work in close collaboration with system architects and colleague system engineers.

When you join our group you will have a varied working week. One moment you discuss your solution with architects, the other you spend defining the interaction between our command & control system and other systems on board of the ship. You frequently meet with your team to learn from each other and to discuss progress.  


Do you have a passion for technology, do you enjoy constantly developing your skills and are you interested in working on Naval Command & Control systems? Then you are the person we are looking for.

  • You hold a bachelor or master degree in computer science, electrical engineering, system engineering or comparable;
  • You have a demonstrable experience with system engineering of complex systems comparable to naval combat systems;
  • You’ve got good knowledge of IT infrastructure technology (networking, operating systems, cyber security) and real-time distributed systems. Relevant technologies include Linux, Cisco networking equipment, Java and Python. Knowledge of container virtualization is preferred;
  • You are a strong communicator capable of discussing with all types of stakeholders;
  • You have a high level of creativity, initiative, pragmatism and persuasiveness;
  • Language proficiency: English European language level: C1, and preferable Dutch language skills at C1 level.;
  • Certifications such as CISSP, RHCA or CCIE are a big plus;
  • Location: Hengelo in the Netherlands.


  • A challenging job in a great team within our high-tech, innovative work environment. Includes the freedom for initiative and good ideas;
  • Room for personal and professional growth within our organisation, for example in regards to technical, commercial or international skills;
  • Valuable international collaboration with coworkers from 68 different countries around the globe;
  • A comfortable work space in a modern environment, with a focus on flexibility and the right work life balance;
  • You can usually work where and when you want to be able to do your work as well and efficiently as possible. Within Thales we implement hybrid working, where you can, for example, work from home two days a week if your role allows it;
  • A good salary, fitting travel allowance, and the ability to personalise your employment conditions: for instance, you can trade days off for internet costs, our bicycle plan, company fitness and relocation costs;
  • 40 days off per year (PTO). Yes, really.
