You will provide valuable guidance to the project team, employing system architecture frameworks to enable seamless integration from enterprise to system level.

As Interim System Modelling Specialist - Naval Shipbuilding your responsibilities will include supporting the development of a model-based system architecture for functional safety assessments and assisting in the requirements engineering process, encompassing traceability, analysis, decomposition, verification, and validation (V&V).

As System Modelling Specialist - Naval Shipbuilding (Project Based), you will be responsible for the following:

  • Defining and updating system modelling processes.
  • Evaluating and selecting suitable technologies, frameworks, and tools to facilitate system development, ensuring scalability, maintainability, and adherence to architectural principles.
  • Conducting comprehensive system analysis to comprehend functional and non-functional requirements, translating them into technical specifications and architectural designs.
  • Collaborating closely with software engineers and other stakeholders to define system components, interfaces, and integration points, ensuring alignment with the architectural vision.
  • Performing formal safety assessments and proposing mitigation strategies to ensure system reliability, performance, and security.
  • Providing technical guidance and mentoring to development teams, promoting architectural best practices, and ensuring consistency in design and implementation.
  • Continuously enhancing system architecture practices within the company, driving the adoption of innovative frameworks and models.
  • Engaging in effective communication with stakeholders such as architects, engineers, and clients.

  • Proficiency in advanced system modelling techniques, including SysML, system architecture frameworks, such as UAF, and familiarity with associated methodologies and best practices.
  • Strong problem-solving skills with the ability to analyse complex systems and technical challenges.
  • Exceptional communication and interpersonal abilities, enabling effective collaboration with cross-functional teams and the ability to present technical concepts to non-technical stakeholders.
  • Key competencies: teamwork, conscientiousness, strong communication skills, proactiveness, and planning focus.
  • Fluency in English, both verbal and written, is required. Proficiency in Dutch and German is advantageous.
  • Excellent references antecedents because a pre-employment security screening is a standard part of the recruitment procedure.
