Masterclass Technical Software Engineer

The function

As an upcoming junior software engineer at ALTEN you will start in a six to eight week Masterclass. This Masterclass will prepare you for the start of your career as a software engineer. The Masterclass consists of various trainings in which you learn object-oriented programming in C++, for example, but also get to work with essential working methods such as test-driven development, UML and Scrum. In addition to following trainings, you will work on a project allowing you to directly apply the knowledge gained from the trainings. During this project you will be involved in the development of a design, the implementation of the code and finally testing the end product. During the Masterclass you will have your own coach who will guide you during the project and provide you with feedback on the code you have written.

Once you have completed the Masterclass, you will start as a software engineer at ALTEN. You will work on software products within various high-tech sectors, such as healthcare, automotive and agriculture. You write code that is efficient, but also understandable for the rest of your team. Within your project, you keep a close eye on the bottlenecks in order to provide advice on how to achieve optimal results.

Your profile

Who are we looking for?

You know the basics of programming, so the terms "for loop", "function" and "class" don't sound strange to you. You have already come across them during your education or hobby project(s). You have a high analytical ability and want to immerse yourself enthusiastically in the world of technical software.

You can expect us to do everything in our power to prepare you optimally for your role as a software engineer at ALTEN. That's why we expect you to take some control over your learning curve and indicate when you run into a problem or need more guidance. In this way your career can start with a solid base!


Other than that, you have:

  • Obtained a technical degree on HBO or WO level (bachelor, master or PhD);
  • Knowledge of programming, but not more than a year of professional experience;
  • Good command of the Dutch and English languages, both spoken and written.

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!
