Over deze vacature

Do you possess technical leadership and can you influence your stakeholders to deploy software architecture changes and development methods? Do you want contribute to the highly advanced and extremely complex systems and push boundaries, set new standards and make the impossible, possible – every day? Keep reading!


The software orchestrates the behaviour of powerful mechatronic modules, so that together they achieve an extraordinary combination of speed and accuracy. For example, one such module, accelerates faster than a fighter jet to enable the machine to position the product in less than a second, with nanometer accuracy!

As well as using systems to position the product, they also use systems to measure and compensate for sub-nanometer inaccuracies that inevitably creep in due to material imperfections, temperature fluctuations, and/or atmospheric pressure changes. To achieve such challenging results, the best systems ever imagined are required.

Solutions of the Functional Group are implemented in software by the Software Department. Your role is to design, realize and integrate high-quality software engineering solutions, allowing fast and efficient delivery of complex functions. The main tasks & responsibilities are:

- Breakdown complex software problems into implementable chunks
- Manage, collect and challenge software requirements
- Ensure and improve software quality
- Establish a long-term software vision and a short-term roadmap to reach it
- (Technically) lead a team of engineers and/or sub-function architects
- Look beyond the scope of your own software (cluster) and align on external interfaces and company-wide software concerns
- At a high-level, understand the machine and its concepts, at a detailed level, understand the role your software plays in the machine and the impact it has on the customer.
- Speak the language of the engineers as well as the language of 'functional people', system engineering, marketing and customer support. Bridge the gap between them.
