We are looking for people to help us change the future of mobility. To realize our mission, we need passionate software engineers who want to shape a new age of mobility. Software is driving this change – therefore we need you, and your vision, ideas, and technical solutions.
You will be working with our best engineers, so you should not be afraid to speak up. Your voice will be heard. We will encourage you to stand up and take the lead.
We expect you to bring your software expertise. In return, we will teach you the automotive specific technology and provide an environment to develop yourself in various disciplines. During your first year, you will learn about all aspects of our organization through our Embedded Engineering Academy program.
Working in a large company comes also with a lot of opportunities. One day you can be working as a software developer on the engine controller and the next day you could be the scrum master of the digital instrument panel team. You also can be part of the exchange program with our sister brands and working for a sprint in the scrum team of Kenworth in Renton, near Seattle or Peterbilt in Denton, near Dalles. If you stand-out, you will have to opportunity to visit and work in our PACCAR Innovation Center in Sunnyvale, the heart of Silicon Valley.
Although this vacancy text contains all the latest buzz words, the reality is more complex. The journey can sometimes be difficult, but in the end, you will be rewarded when you see the result of your hard work on the roads (DAF: this is who we are), or that your software developed in Eindhoven is used for the first Zero Emissions Kenworth (Zero Emissions Kenworth T680 FCEV on the Climb to 14,115-Foot Pikes Peak Summit).
We asked your future colleagues to describe their ideal team member. They came up with the following description:

Are you wondering in which languages we code? That’s mainly Simulink and Python. We are proud of our full Model-Driven Development strategy. Don’t be afraid if you haven’t mastered these languages yet. If you’ve mastered the concept of Object-Oriented Programming, you will be up and running in no time – just like all the engineers and internship students before you.
During the interview, we usually get enthusiastic if you can show us or talk about personal projects you have been working on. For example the app you created or your code on GitHub. We cannot wait to see what interests you most! We will show you how our unique Model-Driven Development strategy looks like, so you can get an impression of your future job.Afdeling
