  • MSc. or BSc. in Electrical Engineering
  • Deep knowledge of DC bus systems and frequency drives as that is the core of the electrical scope of work
  • Experience in E-Plan and MS Visio would be nice to have, but if you’re a seasoned user of other software, you will get a special training
  • Knowledge of offshore rules and regulations is a great asset, as this will define quite a few of your design choices, but this is also something you will learn on the go
  • A hands-on and proactive approach, as you are THE one person defining the Electrical system, and the main problem-solver
  • Excellent communication skills and fluent English, so you can communicate efficiently with your multicultural team
  • Available for occasional travels within Europe, and sometimes around the world
