Technical IT Talents at Data Ecosystems | Eindhoven

Contribute to the secure and carefree exchange of data in the world of tomorrow. Envision it. Become a developer, architect, consultant, or project leader at TNO in Eindhoven.

What will be your role?

As part of the relatively new expertise group, Data Ecosystems, you’ll work with smart and committed colleagues on challenging projects for industry, logistics, and the domains of defence and security, among others. Your role herein depends on your expertise and interests. As a developer, you’ll dive into the code; as an architect, you’ll design the contours of complex IT landscapes. Everything you do is supported by sound research and the latest scientific insights. This gives you the chance to be a true pioneer and innovator in your field.

Do you have a technical background? Would you like to be the link between TNO and the outside world or do you prefer managing projects? Then opt for a role as consultant or project leader. Diversity is guaranteed. Whatever role you step into (we can help with this!), you’re guaranteed to have an impact on the future of data sharing. Curious to know what TNO is already doing in this area? For an example, have a look at our contribution to the Netherlands AI Coalition for responsible data sharing, or the Smart Connected Supplier Network, which manufacturing companies can use to share data.


"You can see that TNO considers learning and development important in the way TNO employees interact with each other. You can always go to your colleagues for feedback, and they will support you in planning your personal development. Having the freedom to follow your own path has two benefits. Firstly, employees enjoy doing work that they’re good at. Secondly, because each individual enjoys something different, TNO has a huge amount of in-house diversity and expertise."
