Universitair (WO)

The activities take place within an international environment in dynamic programs. The HW Architect supports the Systems discipline in making concept design choices. You are constantly improving our current products and developing new products. Reducing integral costs is important here.

You take your views convincingly, motivate them and adjust them if necessary. In doing so, you work intensively together with Solution- and Systems Engineering on the requirements and the (lead) engineers within the MEE department on the execution of the assignment; you also typically interact with Test & Integration, Final Assembly and our Supply Chain: from hardware requirements spec’s (HRS) to FAI, covering a substantial part of the end-to-end responsibility of the multidisciplinary team.

Another part of your job involves the fulfilment of Knowledge & Technology activities in which you will have contact with various departments within the development departments such as RF design, Processing and Systems Engineering. You also have contacts with other Thales branches, suppliers, universities, colleges and (internal) customers. You keep close contact with knowledge institutes outside Thales, follow the trends in the field and look for potential new technologies for your field.
