About the job

At the coffee machine, you strike up a conversation with one of the construction managers. Usually your colleague can be found on a construction site, but today he is in the office for the day. Nice to meet again. You enthusiastically tell him that you have been working at GroenLeven for a year: "Time flies, doesn't it! I remember the feeling I had when I walked out the door after my first interview. This is what I'm going for, I thought. It's so nice to see how many people work here who are intrinsically motivated to make the world cleaner and better." Proudly you continue, talking about the development you've gone through in your work. As a technical designer you were already familiar with steel construction, but at GroenLeven you go the extra mile. As an Inventor engineer you design solar carports with 3D CAD software, thus making a direct contribution to energy transition. Yes, you will be at the right place for the time being. 

We will first introduce ourselves:
We are GroenLeven, since 2018 part of BayWa r.e., a global player in renewable energy. In recent years we have become the market leader in solar energy and, after majors Shell, RWE, Eneco and Vattenfall, the largest investor in the Dutch energy transition. In addition to solar energy, GroenLeven develops projects in wind energy, green hydrogen and energy storage. 
We have installed more than 2 million solar panels in the Netherlands in large-scale and highly innovative projects. These include solar energy on roofs, on carports, above fruit, on the ground in combination with nature development as well as floating on water. For example, more than half a million of GroenLeven's solar panels are currently floating on Dutch inland waterways. This makes GroenLeven the leader in Europe - and the rest of the world outside of China - when it comes to floating solar energy. With this huge track record, the breadth of energy solutions, the high level of quality and our passionate and knowledgeable people, GroenLeven is the ideal partner for the energy transition of companies as well as our society. 
And believe us: working towards a cleaner and better world every day, that feels good.


Who are we looking for?
To join our Engineering team, we are looking for a technical designer / Inventor engineer. An innovative tech person who designs and creates new carports and improves and develops existing designs. Someone who can translate customer requests into solid and sustainable solutions, who has a creative outlook, loves challenges, values personal and technical development and wants to be part of an organization that is at the forefront of energy transition.

As a technical designer:

  • You work on sustainable constructions with a dual function.  
  • You are a creative thinker who comes up with refreshing and feasible proposals. 
  • You ensure good communication with the various stakeholders. 
  • Do you have an eye for detail and a view of the big picture. 

Of course, we are primarily looking for a technical designer / Inventor engineer who fits us perfectly in terms of character, motivation and vision. In addition, our ideal candidate is in all likelihood:

  • A proactive engineer with a completed mbo and/or college education in mechanical or civil engineering and sufficient experience with Inventor software (or similar). In addition, work experience within steel construction is an advantage. 
  • A communicatively skilled colleague who easily interacts with different stakeholders and is able to prioritize. You have multiple projects simultaneously and in between there are frequent requests and changes. 
  • Someone with an eye for detail. For example, you study the IEC/NEN/ISO requirements for making standard carports, you double-check new components in a construction and do not overlook possible risks. 
  • Someone who continuously wants to improve his/her Inventor skills and get the most out of them. 

Do you recognize yourself in the above mentioned points? Then you just might be our Inventor engineer.

With whom and for whom do you work?
Our Engineering team consists of 8 colleagues and is managed by our manager Nikhil. We are a very diverse and international team and each has his or her own expertise, such as: roofs, carports, solar on land and solar on water.

  • You work on multiple projects simultaneously, both current and future projects.
