Commercial Engineer Customization
Plaxis designs and offers software and services for geotechnical engineers. The Plaxis team is involved in applied research, product definition, software development, customization, documentation and high-end services related to the PLAXIS software for geo-engineering applications. Our Competence Centre Geo-engineering contributes directly and indirectly to the development of the advanced PLAXIS software products and the fulfilment of client needs.
The PLAXIS software is known for its user-friendly and intuitive work flow. Standard PLAXIS versions are released on a yearly basis. In addition to the standard PLAXIS software, more and more customers are asking for specific functionality or to adapt the software to their specific work flow. In order to accommodate such requirements, we recently started Customization as a new line of business.
You will offer customization projects to clients who approach us with a specific question and you will acquire new assignments yourself. Typical clients are (semi-) governmental agencies and the bigger contractor companies, responsible for infrastructural projects (harbours, airports, dykes, roads, bridges) and energy production (offshore wind, nuclear, conventional).
It is your task to translate the customer needs into specific proposals. You will work closely together with the Research Engineers and Software Engineers to complete your proposal into a full offer. When the offer has been approved you hand over the customization project to the Project Manager who will be responsible to complete the project.
