What will you be doing?

As a consultant, you will act as the bridge between the researchers and the field of Smart Industry, and in the longer term also other fields like Health. You will work on the development of safe and robust solutions for data sharing between companies. The aim is to achieve interoperability between organisations. The current themes are flexible manufacturing and digital twinning.

What do we require of you?

  • A degree in Technical Business Administration (including an IT component) or Business Information Technology.
  • Experience in the field of Smart Industry would be an advantage.
  • Knowledge of technologies for controlled data sharing between companies, such as EDI, semantic web and linked data, cloud platforms or International Data Spaces.
  • An interest in the latest developments in the area of interoperability, especially a passion for making research practicable for customers.
  • A good command of both Dutch and English (spoken and written).

What can you expect of your work situation?

The Data Science team is a large team that works on a wide range of research topics. The projects are carried out in various fields such as Health, Industry and Security. The team comprises motivated professionals with a strong connection to the academic world. There are a lot of social activities organised around work too. TNO proactively encourages the personal growth and development of its employees because this is essential for an organisation that conducts applied research with market parties and government organisations.

What can TNO offer you?

Work enjoyment means something different for each employee. This is why we offer a-la-carte terms and conditions of employment that you can switch around on a monthly basis. Flexible working hours (like 4 days x 9 hours) and different leave schemes mean that you can create a package attuned to your specific wishes.
TNO attaches great value to both your personal and your professional development. Many opportunities exist for you to develop: conferences, courses, workshops, coaching, intervision, mentoring and job rotation. At TNO you can orchestrate your own career.
