As an Electrical Design Engineer you will be responsible for the execution of the functional design of electrical wiring interconnections, i.e. EWIS Functional Design. This involves analysing design requirements, performing trade-off studies, making design choices and designing wire harnesses constructions and interconnections (From-To definitions), processing of aircraft systems data packages (files), writing technical reports and support continuous functional improvements of our Engineering tooling environment, through integration and concurrent engineering with international and multi-disciplinary teams and together with system suppliers and our customers.

The Design Engineer will report to a Lead Engineer EFD, but will take guidance and direction on a day-to-day basis from a Senior Design Engineer or Work Package Manager within the applicable design and development project. The place of work will by default be at our client in the south of the Netherlands, in this case also on-site at the customer in Germany.
