Front-end Developer

Welcome to Wärtsilä! For our development teams in Drunen, we are looking for an (Senior) Front-end Developer who wants to co-create innovative products together with our customers.


Imagine, you are on a cruise ship enjoying your well-deserved holiday. You are drinking a cocktail while enjoying the nice weather on the sun deck near the pool. Everything is perfect.

Meanwhile, in the engine room, one of the chief mechanics is getting an alert. It seems that the temperature of one of the main fuel pumps is increasing unexpectedly. After a quick check-up, it seems that one of the valves is broken and needs to be repaired immediately. Due to our machine learning algorithms, unplanned downtime of the cruise ship was prevented.


Do you want to develop innovative services for the marine and energy industries? Do you want to improve safety, reliability and efficiency of vessels and power plants? If so this position at Wärtsilä might be the next step in your career. Wärtsilä is a global leader in smart technologies and complete lifecycle solutions for the marine and energy markets. By emphasizing sustainable innovation, total efficiency and data analytics, Wärtsilä maximizes the environmental and economic performance of the vessels and power plants of its customers. 

Together with one of our scrum teams of developers, testers and data scientists, you will work on the development of software which will be used for predictive maintenance and performance optimization of our customers’ assets. Your focus areas will be our asset efficiency optimization and predictive maintenance products that allow our equipment experts to effectively use the data of hundreds of ocean-going vessels and power plants to provide insights toward our customers. 

What are your main tasks and responsibilities?

  • You build and develop our new responsive web app that works well on a variety of screen resolutions and browsers.
  • You develop new features for our products and services which provide our customers with actionable information through multiple channels.
  • Participate in end to end development through prototyping, validation, implementation, launch, and further iterations.
  • You actively contribute to continuous integration efforts and improvements on our way of working.
  • You collaborate with UX designers to develop appealing and intuitive interfaces based on graphic designs or mock-ups.


What do we expect from you?

  • You have a Bachelor or master’s degree in Computer Science or at least 3 years of relevant experience with front-end-development. Specifically: JavaScript (including ES6 or TypeScript), HTML5, CSS and Sass.
  • Experience with technologies like React, Vue.js, Angular, Ember or equivalent (we use React).
  • Experience with automated testing on different levels.
  • You have experience with back-end development (e.g. Java, Python) or experience working with BaaS (e.g. Firebase) is a plus
  • You have experience working in a team and willingness to be an active member in a scrum team
  • Conceptual, analytical and creative thinker with a proactive attitude and ability to learn.
  • You are a team player, whilst being self-directing.
  • You can communicate effectively in written and spoken English.


Due to the international working environment and worldwide customers, you must be willing to travel occasionally for this position.
