Functie omschrijving

As a Radar System Engineer, you work in a multidisciplinary team on the specification, design, development and validation of radar systems. The project teams consist, in general, of a radar architect, system, hardware, software and test engineers and specific domain/field specialists (e.g. radar functional design, signal processing, safety and cybersecurity). The system engineer, in cooperation with the rest of the team, is responsible for the global design of the radar, thereby taking into account the functional performance, quality and costs to find the optimal design.

The system engineering work comprises of, for example, abstract/functional work like radar design (defining new capabilities/functionalities), but also solving issues, which requires detailed knowledge of for example specific components and/or analysing field data.

Our team is looking for ambitious colleagues who are willing to learn ‘the essentials of radar engineering’.


  • Master degree in Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, or Applied Mathematics;
  • Good communication skills, and ability to work in multidisciplinary teams;
  • Willingness to learn;
  • Fluency in English and Dutch;
  • Preferably knowledge of Matlab/Simulink and C++;
  • You have to pass a Dutch Security check in order to get a clearance (we are a Defence Company) to work for us.


  • 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.
