Simulation Software Engineer
(in combination with Vanderlande)
The System Emulation Department specializes in creating complex models which are used to test software and analyze the system performance and system behavior. The engineers of the integration department use our models to verify that the system works correctly and the system requirements are met. The models are created for the market segments Airports and Warehousing. You have a lot of interaction with the engineers of the other departments within Vanderlande.
As a simulation software engineer you are responsible for designing, programming, testing and maintaining simulation and emulation software and models. The, often complex, functionality of the software includes business logic, controls for mechanical transportation, sortation and storage equipment, communication with external computer systems, logging, reporting and data analysis.
As a software engineer in our team, you are responsible for all aspects of software engineering. You talk to colleagues to find out what to build. You also design, discuss, and implement the solution in the form of a simulation or emulation model.
The software you write in these models is highly complicated, it has to simulate/emulate all the relevant parts of the real system, while still maintaining performance. We want to be able to run our model on a standard laptop, which makes performance a challenge. This means your job isn't just to write working, readable code, but also to write performant code. The main challenge in your day-to-day job is finding the correct abstraction: "How can we leave out as much as possible without sacrificing the relevant details and still allowing users and developers to comprehend the logistic process and system behavior?".
All in all, we're looking for someone with an affinity for technology who's also a competent programmer, with experience in Object Oriented Programming, preferably Java, or otherwise C# or C++.
Your Qualifications and skills
- A Master or Bachelor Degree in a technical field, preferably Computer Science or Software Engineering.
- Preferably proficient with Java, but at least knowledgeable of Java, C# or C++;
- Interested in working with graphs (nodes and edges), complex software, in a challenging domain
- Enthusiastic result-driven professional
- Proactive, pragmatic and hands-on attitude
