Apply now


As a control system engineer you are responsible for establishing the control architecture of our mechatronic system concepts. You work on projects ranging from high-tech to medical or robotic systems in different stages of the development process.


Each one of our companies differentiates itself in its own domain with unique expertise and skills. This way they help customers improve their performance and achieve more. On the basis of their passion for technology our companies are able to combine forces. By sharing knowledge and working together we increase our social impact. Demcon high-tech systems is a multidisciplinary development and engineering partner for mechatronic challenges, from concept to realization, in the field of high-tech systems.


One moment you are working on the architecture and the next moment you are thinking about the inputs/outputs that need to be controlled and with what performance/bandwidths, making dynamic analyses, building a test setup or standardizing a development process. In addition, you actively think about the system design, the desired dynamic behavior, location of resonances and eigenfrequencies and optimal placement of sensors and actuators.

In your role, you bring structured content coherence between the system requirements, system concept and system integration. You are the link between mechanics, electronics and software, among others. In addition to your technical work, you provide substantive support to the project manager, both in acquisition and in transferring the project result to the customer.


  • PhD in the field of systems & control
  • You are a team player and take responsibility inside and outside projects
  • You feel at home in the Demcon culture: creative, team player, realization-oriented, involved, customer-oriented
  • You are not only theoretically minded, but also have affinity with setting up and performing experiments


At Demcon we value a nice workplace. For example, we have good coffee and there is free fresh fruit waiting for you every week. There is also a lot of personal attention and we discourage overtime because we know how important home is.

Furthermore, you can count on, among other things:

  • A good, market-based salary 
  • 31 days off and 8% vacation allowance 
  • A good pension plan at Zwitserleven 
  • The opportunity to follow training and courses through the Demcon Academy so you can further develop your knowledge 
  • A laptop and telephone from work 
  • Bicycle plan 
  • Active personnel association (monthly activities such as drinks and an annual Demcon weekend) and annual sporting events
