Your department

The Vlaardingen office offers an ambitious and growing working environment, where a young team works together and helps each other out where needed. Colleagues often socialise and have fun with each other, even after work – from having a games evening, going for a run, or heading to the pub, to taking part in an engineering challenge.

There is plenty of room for initiative and personal development, plus you can help shape how our office develops. You can also meet new colleagues at fairs and other events through the Promo Team, and expand your own network so that Vlaardingen can grow.

As a Structural Design Engineer, you can work in either the ME or EA departments.
Mechanical Engineering focuses on various projects including mechanical engineering itself, but also product engineering and offshore industries.
The Engineering Analysis department specialises in simulations and analyses based on FEM (Finite Element Method), in the chemical, offshore, food, and speciality engineering market segments.
