The position
Do you have geospatial smarts, do you have a preference for Open Source software and are you also a pioneer? Then being a GIS engineer at Van Oord is the job for you. From deep under the water to high up in the air, our projects are often unique and are without exception brimming with technical, financial and organizational challenges. Would you like to make sure your clients are always topographically up to date? Then apply for the job of GIS engineer at Van Oord!

Your responsibilities

From wind farms, harbours and dykes to deepwater shipping channels, if we are to do our job properly we need up-to-date and accurate geo-information. We consider that so important that we are setting up a specific GIS team within our Survey Department. As a GIS engineer for this new team, you will visit the business units of Van Oord to gather specific client questions. You will make GIS analyses based on these questions and you will manage the associated data within the GIS portal. Thanks to you, our tender specialists and project managers will always have up-to-date spatial information, the basis for safe and achievable projects. As such, you will have a unique opportunity to make a concrete contribution towards developing the use of GIS within Van Oord, and to do so in an international environment. Which is why you will sometimes be working abroad. This is an innovative role that will call on your knowledge and ingenuity worldwide.

Job requirements
Thanks to your communication skills, you are always able to establish the real question your clients need answering, and to advise them properly. You do so independently and with a sense of responsibility, because you will be given a lot of freedom. You are inquisitive and have deep knowledge of GIS software such as: ArcGis, Qgis, Map3D and PostGres/PostGIS. You have no problem travelling every now and then to visit our projects abroad. In addition, you bring the following to the table:
• a qualification in geodesy or geo-informatics at intermediate vocational (MBO) level at least;
• 3 to 5 years experience in the field;
• Excellent command of English, spoken and written;

We offer

Together with your colleagues in the new team at our offices in Rotterdam and Gorinchem, you will be given plenty of room to give GIS a full place within Van Oord. Your knowledge and input will be valued. We work in a friendly, open atmosphere and are always willing to help each other. Alongside an attractive package, you will be given plenty of opportunity (and a training budget) to develop professionally and personally, internationally too, so that you can continue to grow within your role.
