The position

As a Dredging Data Support Engineer, you will be responsible for enriching and analysing data generated by the many sensors on board our ships. The data from our dredgers worldwide find their way by satellite to the Van Oord head office in Rotterdam, where you will analyse it and put it into an accessible form in order to chart the performance of our dredging equipment together with your colleagues.

Your responsibilities
Your primary internal customers will be the Production Engineers within the Engineering & Estimation department who are responsible for production volume in the field. In order to be able to actively make adjustments during dredging, the Production Engineers use dashboards that you will build. To that end, you will use data related to the drive characteristics of all the mechanical systems on board, such as pumps, winches, motors, hydraulic systems, etc. and data with feedback on the production process itself, for example from density and speed sensors. While supporting operations in the field from our head office, as a data scientist you will simultaneously be constantly looking for relationships in data, which means we will be looking to you when it comes to modifications and optimisation of existing equipment.

Job requirements
• A completed MSc in Mechanical Engineering;
• At least 2 years experience with data enrichment and analysis;
• Analytical skills, creativity and the ability to understand the needs of your internal customer;
• Comfortable using Autocad, Python, Matlab and MS Office;
• Good command of written and spoken English;
• You are able to put yourself in the shoes of your internal customers at the head office and on the ships and adjust your communication accordingly;
• Willingness to visit projects abroad on an incidental basis.

We offer

A job as a data scientist with a strong application-oriented slant in which you will be directly involved in the execution of dredging projects but which will also call on your analytical skills. You will be based at our head office in Rotterdam and will occasionally visit projects abroad. You can expect an excellent package and plenty of scope to develop, internationally too, both personally and professionally.
