About this vacancy

You will work within the Connected Care - Patient Engagement R&D department at Philips in Ede.

Your team is in the forming phase (starts in April), with around ten knowledgeable engineers from different teams within our department. The engineers have various expertise and different levels of seniority. It has a dedicated (technical) product owner and dedicated ScrumMaster.

Because of some non-Dutch members, all the formal sessions, documentation and communications are in English. The team is using Agile/Scrum to deliver software and align with other teams using SAFe.

We work in an open culture where everyone’s opinion counts and try to share knowledge and ownership.

Although we have a beautiful newly built office in the forest near Ede, where you are welcome, this position allows working from home. We do expect you to go to the office for creative team sessions, a small number of times a month.
