Embedded Software Engineer

The function

As an Embedded Software Engineer at ALTEN you use your knowledge to work on innovative projects. You know how to develop software in a structured way, work together in a (multidisciplinary) team and are able to communicate clearly about the progress of the project and possible obstacles. With your background you have learned to extract the required information from datasheets and to write high-quality software based on that information.

An interesting aspect of this position is that as an Engineer you get the opportunity to learn from your senior colleagues and participate in various projects within the high-tech sector. As a result, you will continue to develop, challenge and gain a lot of experience. 

Your profile

Who are we looking for?

There is a good balance between the knowledge you carry, and the knowledge you gain. You already have experience with various programming languages in the field of embedded software. With this base you will challenge yourself to deepen your knowledge of these languages and to expand this knowledge with other programming languages. In this way you will learn to think from different angles and you will be able to assess and advise in which programming language the proper software for the project can be written.

In addition to programming, you are interested in the aspects related to it. You can think of, for example, automatic testing and the use of tooling. Performance issues on embedded hardware (platforms) keep you focused and you know how to deal with the limitations of a hardware platform.


Other than that, you have:

  • Obtained a technical degree at HBO or WO level (bachelor, master or PhD);
  • Experience with programming in C and C++;
  • Experience with embedded systems;
  • Basic knowledge of (embedded) Linux.

ALTEN offers

What can you expect from us?

ALTEN offers a technically challenging environment where your growth is central through the diversity of projects. In addition, we believe that as an engineer you never stop learning, which is why we offer you the opportunity to further develop yourself both personally and professionally. Within our ALTEN Academy we offer trainings that match your ambitions. Our consultants also regularly organise knowledge evenings about new technologies, in which you can take part. Or maybe you would like to organise a knowledge evening yourself with your colleagues?

If, after the interviews, it turns out that you and ALTEN are a good match, we will immediately offer you a permanent contract. As we expect our consultants to be mobile, we offer you the choice between a lease car or a mobility allowance. In addition, we offer a good salary and a standard net expense allowance. We think it is important that you also have time to relax, that is why we give you 27 days off. Not enough? Then you can buy 10 more. You don't have to worry about your pension; we arrange that for you with a non-contributory pension scheme.

To give shape to your ambitions, you will be linked to both a Business Manager and a Technical Manager. Together you decide which trainings you need and which projects will help you achieve your ambitions. 


ALTEN works as a consultancy and engineering organization in various (niche) markets of the high-tech sector and IT. Knowledge in the field of technology plays an important role, which is the central pillar within ALTEN.

Your work is mainly focused on R&D, in which you are involved in setting up and working out the design and the implementation of the software at a high quality level. This can take place at the client's location, but can also be performed at the ALTEN Delivery Center in Eindhoven, Capelle a/d IJssel or Apeldoorn.

ALTEN offers plenty of challenges. For example, you can grow from the role of a Software Engineer to a Project Leader or the ultimate specialist. Apply now to strengthen our team!
