Structural Engineer - Doetinchem NL

Involved in international projects from idea to execution

As a Structural Engineer, the world is literally at your feet. Because you are involved from start to finish in designing steel structures for automated storage systems for distribution centers around the world.

A challenging and diverse job, because you work on various projects simultaneously. You design complex and high structures, where - in addition to the static design - you also assess the dynamic effects of robotization on these structures.

Will you be this new colleague? Read on quickly!

This is NEDCON

NEDCON is a global player in the field of storage systems. From manual warehouse racking and semi-automatic systems to an integrated approach for complex and automated warehouse equipment. We design, manufacture, supervise, assemble and install these systems all over the world. And we have been doing so since 1969. 

With a team of more than 500 colleagues, spread over three locations in the Netherlands, the United States and the Czech Republic, we install impressive projects around the world that are getting bigger and therefore more complex. We are committed to delivering the (mostly) fully automated systems to our international customers on schedule, on budget and to the highest quality.

With us you play in the Champions League, work-wise that is. Because the atmosphere within our company feels more like a team of friends. Many colleagues built NEDCON themselves and are still working there. That creates a family feeling, in which new colleagues are welcomed with open arms. 

Our head office is located in Doetinchem. So expect us to have a down-to-earth, no-nonsense mentality. Making beautiful things together, that's what we do at NEDCON!

Your job

As a Structural Engineer, you design steel structures for storage systems according to various European and North American standards. You will design complex and big structures, analyze various types of systems and work with different materials and stabilization methods.

You work on several projects simultaneously and stay involved throughout the duration. So your work is very varied. You are not only busy making calculations, but also coordinate your work with the draftsmen, interact with colleagues and external parties and maintain contact with clients.

  • You can justify the choices you make in the design phase to both clients and controlling authorities.
  • During the project phase, we check the choices made during the proposal phase at a detailed level.

Your department
You will work in the System Integrators department, which is responsible for the realization of automated storage systems. We develop these systems together with a logistics partner. They focus on robotization and automation, while we take care of the steel construction part.

You work in a team of 6 colleagues, in which everyone works on his or her own projects. So you work independently, but of course there is always room to brainstorm with each other.
