Are you an experienced project engineer with an impressive track record in civil projects? Would you also love to be part of a rapidly growing, innovative, sustainable scale-up that is in full development? Then we are looking for you! Ocean Grazer has a challenging position for an experienced Project Engineer who will play a key role in shaping our civil disciplines within development. Seize this unique opportunity to leverage your expertise and elevate your career to new heights in a dynamic and progressive environment!


The Company:

Ocean Grazer is a young company developing energy storage systems for offshore wind farms. Our Ocean Battery, inspired by traditional Pumped Hydro Storage (PHS), has already received prestigious awards, including a Best-of-Innovation award from CES Las Vegas. In collaboration with RWE, we won the tender for the HKW-VII wind farm, and the industry eagerly awaits the results of our first demonstration projects. We are looking for a fun, enthusiastic colleague who is eager to join our team and lead the development of this product.


What will you do?

As a Project Engineer at Ocean Grazer, you will take the opportunity to play a crucial role in the design and development of the groundbreaking Ocean Battery system. With your in-depth technical knowledge of civil engineering, both on land and at sea, you go beyond traditional design aspects. You are responsible for design, construction, material selection, and structural analyses, with special attention to offshore constructions. You play a key role throughout the project's lifecycle, keeping execution risks manageable and making the design practically feasible.

You are not only a technical expert but also a team player who thrives on collaboration between different disciplines, such as structural design, geotechnics, and construction management. Your ability to come up with innovative and creative solutions is crucial as we work on projects that go beyond the standard. You effectively collaborate with external parties to benefit from existing knowledge while closely monitoring the quality and specifications of civil constructions.


Who are you?

You are a professional with an innovative outlook on civil engineering and a passion for sustainability. You understand the (international) standards and norms in this sector and know how to apply them in an innovative way, both technically and economically. You are aware of the latest technological developments and understand how they can benefit us in realizing the Ocean Battery.


With a focus on environmental impacts and sustainability principles, you integrate these into the design while maintaining a high safety awareness and complying with all relevant regulations. Your flexibility enables you to adapt to changing conditions and the dynamics of a rapidly growing organization. Additionally, you bring excellent project management skills, including planning, resource management, and risk management. As a communicative professional, you collaborate effectively with multidisciplinary teams, clients, and external stakeholders, taking ownership of the design of crucial system components. You act as the internal and external point of contact for civil engineering development, playing an essential role in the success of the Ocean Battery.


What do we offer?

You will be part of a small and passionate team. Within our company, there is plenty of room for initiative and personal development.

We offer a competitive package of employment conditions. The base salary ranges from €3,000 to €4,500 gross per month (indicative). Additionally, we provide a comprehensive set of secondary benefits, including the option for remote work, a pension scheme, and a daily well-catered lunch with your colleagues.
