For their location in Vlissingen we are looking for a Requirements Engineer ILS for a permanent position.

The role
As Requirements Engineer you will identify and document the wishes of the customer with regards to a naval shipbuilding project (Engineering-to-Order). You will capture the customer’s wishes and requirements within the Requirements Management tool and support further grouping and decomposition of these requirements to support the establishment of clear and functional specifications for processes and products to be developed that can be used by their engineering teams and/or used to specify subcontracted work packages to suppliers of Engineering hardware and/or software. As Requirements Engineer you functionally and hierarchically report to the Manager Systems Engineering and operationally report to the Project Manager Engineering / Team Leader Engineering on the assigned project.

  • Actively keeping an eye on the follow up of the development process in the role of Requirement Engineer

  • Bachelor or master’s degree preferably in Systems Engineering, Marine Engineering or an equivalent relevant technical field
  • Common sense, logical thinking and agility with digital tools
  • Knowledge of Systems Engineering principles, especially for the Requirements Management process (capture, analysis, validation, specification, and verification); experience with DOORS is a plus
