You are capable of working independently and can easily connect with clients and/or experts in and outside TNO. You cooperate well with various disciplines and are able to let people deliver their best in a team.

What else can you offer? 
  • You have extensive experience in construction and infrastructure digitalisation.
  • You have extensive experience in and knowledge of (open) BIM.
  • You are familiar with Semantic Linked Data or are keen to learn more about it fast.
  • You have a demonstrably relevant network of partners and stakeholders.
