JUNIOR BLOCKCHAIN ENGINEER

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

One of the major problems in supply chains is a lack of transparency. It is often impossible to determine where exactly products come from and who has come into contact with them. This gives the possibility of fraud and makes it possible to trace specific products in the event of incidents (for example in the case of food safety). Blockchains can play a role in increasing transparency in these chains. At TNO we investigate how blockchain can be used for this and we are working on solutions using this technology. And we are looking for you to develop these blockchain solutions!

Challenges that have not yet been solved when designing blockchain solutions and that you can work with include:

  • Where do we store the data that is exchanged, in the blockchain or outside?
  • How can we make different blockchains (automated) work together?
  • How, what and where are you going to archive what is happening on the blockchain?
  • How do we validate the integrity of data on the blockchain?
  • How can we support organizations in quickly and easily configuring a blockchain?

We are therefore looking for a junior engineer who would like to work with blockchain. Do you look beyond technology and do you want to help companies solve their practical problems with new IT solutions? When you come to work at TNO, you can work every day to create future-proof solutions for customers with new technology. Within the Data Science department we work for various sectors, including logistics, industry, agriculture and horticulture and the government. As a junior engineer, you can use blockchain to, for example, work on a fair food chain, fighting fraud in trade and logistics and reliable cooperation between suppliers and customers in the industry. 

WHAT DO WE ASK OF YOU?

You are interested in specific blockchain and in other new technologies in general and you are particularly keen to investigate their practical applicability. You are motivated to find better solutions to existing problems, not only from a theoretical perspective, but also from a practical point of view. You see the development and implementation of solutions in various contexts and domains as a challenge.

For the position of junior blockchain engineer, we are looking for someone with:

  • A completed IT training, such as computer science or artificial intelligence
  • Programming experience, preferably with techniques such as Java, Python, Go, Typescript, Git and Docker
  • Experience with blockchain concepts is an advantage
  • Knowledge of techniques for controlled data sharing between companies, such as EDI and web services and knowledge of semantic technologies such as semantic web, linked data, RDF and OWL is an advantage
  • Affinity with working with companies in the logistics and agri industry
  • Good command of the Dutch language and English language

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM YOUR WORKING ENVIRONMENT?

At TNO you can work every day to create future-proof solutions for customers with new technology. Within the Data Science department we work for various sectors, including logistics, industry, agriculture and horticulture and the government. As a junior engineer, you can use blockchain to, for example, work on a fair food chain, fighting fraud in trade and logistics and reliable cooperation between suppliers and customers in the industry. 

WHAT CAN TNO OFFER YOU?

Working with pleasure means something different for every employee. That is why we offer, for example, a-la-carte terms of employment, whereby you can exchange various terms of employment against each other every month. Thanks to flexible working hours (for example 4×9) and various leave arrangements, you can create a package that best suits your needs. 
TNO attaches great importance to both your personal and your professional development. There are many possibilities to get started with your development: conferences, training courses, workshops, coaching, peer review, mentoring and job rotation. At TNO, you are largely in control of your own career. 

WHAT DOES THE PROCESS LOOK LIKE?

Applying is possible until April 28. This application procedure has two rounds of interviews. This is followed by a selection assessment. And finally we discuss the employment conditions in an interview. We aim to complete this within 4 weeks.

For this vacancy it is necessary for GISS to issue a VGB after conducting a security investigation. For more information, visit the AIVD website .
