What will you be doing?

In a project combining simulation models in the energy and financial domains, you will be developing a graphical user interface to create, edit and visualise simulation configurations and also display progress and results of a run. You have to:
  • Familiarise yourself with the various components and data models used in the project.
  • Collect requirements from the dashboard users and model developers.
  • Research and determine the suitable technology from available, open source software options.
  • Design a visualisation framework consisting of a containerised web server and scripts and motivate your choices.
  • Develop, test and deploy the framework following a suitable software development lifecycle.
  • Present your work internally and prepare a software documentation for TNO, encapsulating the various aspects of your work.

What do we require of you?

  • Is pursuing at least a bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering, Computer Science or similar.
  • Is proficient in using HTML, JavaScript, CSS, Python and NodeJS.
  • Is proficient in using a graphics editor software of your choice (Illustrator, Photoshop, Inkscape, Vectr or similar).
  • Has a good understanding of developing and deploying applications in a cloud-based environment.
  • Has good communication skills to interact with team members across technical and non-technical domains.
  • Is passionate about learning new technologies and working independently.
  • You do get brownie points if you can already show an example of your creativity with your CV/Application.

What can you expect of your work situation?

We, at Monitoring & Control Services (MCS) prove the feasibility as well as the added value of innovative applications of information technology for industry and government through an approach of first-time engineering of large scale monitoring & control systems. We view such systems from an Internet-of-Things perspective, where large amounts of heterogeneous data are generated by internet-connected infrastructures. These data need to be stored, processed and analysed to build useable information for decision-making or autonomous control. Our research group deals with the information technology challenges involved in:
  1. Automatic acquisition, storage and retrieval of large volumes of data across organizations.
  2. The continuous processing of large distributed sets of data into information using adaptive (machine-learning) algorithms from multiple parties involved in Big Data analysis.
  3. Predictive analytics and large scale simulation of complex model chains for decision support in different phases (from planning/design to maintenance) of the innovation cycle.
  4. Humans interacting with the processing of data into information within complex systems.
By developing future-proof, adaptable and scalable IT solutions, we cooperate with government bodies, enterprises, service providers and non-governmental organisations in three focus domains - Industry & Infrastructure, Sustainable Energy, and Defence to create a more efficient, greener and safer tomorrow. We are a fun and very social group of applied researchers, consultants in IT systems and processes, as well as a number of System Integration experts, located in Groningen and the Hague.
