Software Engineer In-house Project Organisation

The function

As a Software Engineer for our in-house project organisation, you use your knowledge to realise innovative projects within the ALTEN Delivery Center (ADC). The ADC is part of ALTEN for the in-house execution of projects for our clients. You are part of a fixed core team of specialists that is set up in such a way that the expertise required is within reach; engineers and testers; analysts and architects; project managers and technical specialists. All these specialists are ALTEN consultants, who have all the qualities for the entire product/application lifecycle, from design and planning to realisation and management.

Together with a talented team you’ll adapt an existing software framework to the new standards in a demanding environment. Since the code base is large your main challenge will be to deduct how to fit the new features into the existing system and after aligning make changes or even extend the existing code base using the processes with learnings from the past. The time pressure will be tangible and the quality standards should be met.

You work on challenging projects within various sectors, from high tech to agriculture and automotive to the semiconductor industry. This gives you the opportunity to constantly develop yourself. As a specialist in the field of software development, your input is therefore indispensable for the successful completion of a project.

Je werkzaamheden zijn met name gericht op R&D, waarbij je betrokken wordt bij het opstellen en uitwerken van het design, de implementatie van de software op een kwalitatief hoogstaand niveau. Qua ontwikkel-methodiek wordt bij voorkeur gebruik gemaakt van Agile/Scrum. Binnen de R&D-omgevingen van de verschillende hightechindustrieën wordt er steeds meer gebruik gemaakt van hoogstaande softwareoplossingen. Het kwalificeren, ontwerpen en ontwikkelen van deze softwareoplossingen vraagt om een helder en abstract denkniveau en de capaciteiten dit te vertalen naar een praktische oplossing. De daadwerkelijke oplossingen kunnen in verschillende ontwikkelomgevingen gerealiseerd worden. Denk hierbij aan R&D voor de meest uiteenlopende toepassingen binnen bijvoorbeeld de medische, industriële of informatiesector.
