About the job


As a Draftsman, you are responsible for construction drawings and 3D modeling in projects.  You will be working closely together with our naval architects and - engineers to deliver solutions to (complex) challenges that our clients are facing. Depending on your level of experience your role could also include engineering and design in various projects.


Based on the specifications you will deliver 2D drawings and 3D models using AutoCAD, BricsCAD and Rhinoceros. Your attention to detail is key in making sure our designs and solutions meet the specified requirements.


You will be working in a team but you are required to take ownership of your work and manage deliverables. Your ability to operate independently is highly valued but we make sure that there is always an experienced colleague you can turn to if needed.


We provide challenging and rewarding career opportunities and foster a culture where every employee experience respect and has the opportunity for continued professional growth. Our team is diverse, highly skilled, and international (both Dutch and English are spoken at the office).
