Additionally, our company culture is one that values not only technology, but also fun and social events.



  • Lead the design and analysis of steel structures for offshore wind projects, including foundations, towers, and support structures;
  • Collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of engineers and designers to develop optimal structural solutions;
  • Prepare detailed design calculations and drawings, and ensure that designs comply with relevant codes and standards;
  • Perform structural analysis using finite element method and software;
  • Monitor and report on the progress of design and analysis work, and ensure that project timelines are met;
  • Participate in site visits and inspections to ensure that constructed structures conform to design specifications.


  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in Civil or Structural Engineering;
  • Minimum of 1 year of experience in structural design, with a focus on steel structures and offshore structures;
  • Strong knowledge of relevant codes and standards, including Eurocodes and AISC;
  • Proficient in using analysis and design software, such as STAAD Pro, SACS, RISA, or similar;
  • Experience with offshore wind projects is highly desirable;
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, and the ability to work effectively in a team environment.

Our firm offers a competitive salary and benefits package, as well as opportunities for professional development and growth. If you are a highly motivated engineer with a passion for designing innovative steel structures for offshore wind projects, we want to hear from you.
