What is your challenge

As a Service & Commissioning Engineer you independently carry out commissioning and service and maintenance work on electrical installations on board ships.

You resolve malfunctions in sensors, cabling, system cabinets and other installation parts by replacing parts, adjusting settings, repairing parts, etc. You actively think along with problems that have arisen. Afterwards you prepare the service reports.

You will also commission new installations to be delivered, such as battery systems, hybrid installations, hoisting and propulsion installations. You test the cabling, sensors and systems for proper functioning. You detect sources of interference and, of course, you also remedy them.

Ships can be anywhere in the world at the time of a failure. You are therefore prepared to board the plane at any time to help the client get back on track as quickly as possible.

You will work for a growing and dynamic family business. The working atmosphere is good and informal. We have an active staff association and a monthly Friday afternoon drink.

You will receive a competitive salary between € 2,900 and € 3,600 gross per month based on a full-time employment contract, depending on knowledge and experience. You will receive good compensation for working abroad. You are entitled to a travel allowance and 25 vacation days and 13 ADV days (based on a full-time employment).

You will also be registered with the Pension Fund Foundation for Metal and Technology (PMT) and you will have the opportunity to participate in the collective health insurance. You get a laptop and a mobile phone.
