Huygens Engineers

Our promise is useful technical innovations, calculations and realizations. Our customers market systems in the high tech industry, renewables, marine, and components for internal transport systems. 

Customers subcontract R&D to Huygens Engineers to give technical functions a (new) embodiment or to contribute to the result in a larger customer team. We develop and validate systems, products, machines, special tools where mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, control and physics are involved, and require a professional approach. We work for a number of industry-leading customers.

We now employ 20 engineers including a number of PhDs, are growing substantially, and aim to keep to a size where technical discussion dominates over process management, and where we all know each other well. We expect to grow to 30 engineers fairly rapidly.

Our dominant business model is work for hire, where work happens at our facilities, mostly in teams, and IP is for the customer. We do not rent out engineers at customer-locations except for service or commissioning. Budget predictability for the customer is provided through adequate staging and prior estimation of work for stages that start. We have few fixed price contracts.

We offer an exciting combination of breadth and depth to engineers with a curious, open, disciplined and practical mind.

Acquisition in response to this job offer is not appreciated.
