• Vacancy: Embedded Software Engineer

    Vacancy – ’s-Hertogenbosch – Fulltime (32 – 40 hours per week) – Electronic Heating Controls

  • Your challenge as Medior/Senior Embedded Software Engineer

    Due to growth, we are searching for you! What makes your job interesting is your central role where you bring electronic controls for heating- and ventilation equipment to life. Because we work embedded, you will actually see a tangible product. We have standard controls that we tailor for our customers via configuration and parameters (projects between 2 months and 1 year), but also totally customized products (projects between 2 and 3 years). The average product lifetime is more than 15 years and during this period we provide support, therefore you will be able to follow your own projects.


    You will be responsible for the whole process (design until production) and you will work closely with your customers all around the world. You will provide customer support with integrating our products into their appliances. We work in small, multidisciplinary teams on projects to bring digital electronics to life with embedded software.

    Other tasks (to make the job more tangible)

    - Setting up technical detailed design-, implementation- and test documents

    - Execute tests based on specification and technical design

    - Integrate and build standard software modules and support validation- and certification processes.

    Your Engineering colleagues

    Our design department consists of 3 specialties who each have their own teams:

    - Customer Software/Application

    - Core Software Development

    - Hardware Design and Validation

    To keep everything organized, these teams are managed by our Project Management team.


    You are going to work in a department with 18 engineers (of which 13 software engineers) who are divided into small teams
    (2 – 4 engineers). Within a positive atmosphere and with the required responsibility you will work on a tangible, working product. You have direct influence on the result. Our team is involved, motivated and gets the opportunity to learn and take initiative, so we can expand our knowledge, build experience and simultaneously contribute to smart, efficient and sustainable solutions. We believe that our employees are the most important building blocks of our company.


    Our company in ’s-Hertogenbosch is relatively small (34 employees), but we are part of a large, international company. For us this is an ideal combination. You will have a lot of contact with colleagues and customers worldwide.

    Your future? Of course, this depends on your qualities and interests. For example, a promotion to Team leader is certainly possible.

    Practical: Salary is based on education and working experience. Some examples of our benefits: a bonus payment (depending on the company results) and permanent employment.

    Why do want to work with us?

    - Working embedded delivers a concrete end product. You are not just a small part of a big, abstract project.

    - We are involved: most of our colleagues go for a lunchtime walk, on Fridays we order pizza for lunch and we regularly meet for game nights (board - and online games)

    - Flexible working conditions

    - Career opportunities

    - A small company within a large, international company (best of both worlds)

    The ideal Embedded Software Engineer

    You have programming skills (at least C) and are able to set up software structures. We develop embedded controls who need to be safe and reliable. Therefore, you need to validate your own work by performing the required tests. Experience in a similar work environment (e.g., heating technology) or similar products is preferred. As a person you have technical interests, likes to work on making a tangible product. You do not only want to code, but also see an actual result. You are more than a programmer as you also like to explore and try.

    Your skills

    You think along with the customer, like to work together and can work in a structured way. You have a strong analytical and abstract thinking ability, which enables you to develop customised and standard solutions. You are resourceful, eager to learn and capable of working on several projects at the same time.
