At RH Marine, we realise the system integration of electrical and automation systems on board naval vessels, submarines and luxury superyachts.

So it remains ‘our baby’ throughout the life cycle. You will work in our engineering department where we work on luxury superyachts. They handle system integration, electrical design and automation for both new-build projects and upgrades of systems on board these luxury superyachts. For the electrical engineering and system integration projects, we are looking for a Junior Electrical Engineer for our Schiedam office. This is a full-time position.

  • You will draw up specifications for the materials and components to be used;
  • You will elaborate designs in drawings and technical specifications;
  • You will provide technical support during production, installation and handover of completed equipment and systems to customers.
