Career opportunities

Our culture and your career We enjoy thinking so far outside the box that we’ve put the entire thing aside: YOU decide in which direction you want to grow! Equal opportunities, inclusiveness and an informal culture are an essential part of our success. That’s why we offer you a great amount of flexibility. Whether that means working part-time, working from home, or the option to choose your own start and end times: just let us know. You’re also getting 40 days off per year… Go to for all of our job openings!

Together with our knowledge partners, customers and suppliers, we work on radars for naval vessels, cybersecurity solutions, transport systems, communication equipment for the army, cryogenic cooling solutions and research & development for radar technology (in collaboration with TU Delft). This means we play a leading role in digital transformation, focusing on artificial intelligence, big data & data analytics, connectivity, mobility plus the internet of things and cybersecurity.

Our culture is very open. From enjoying a coffee at the Starbucks in our HQ to a ski trip with our international Young Employee Society and from interesting lunch lectures to a Friday afternoon drink with new employees: there’s something here for everyone. And because you are so involved and committed to our Thales goals, you not only get a (very) good salary, but also 40 days off a year. Yes, really. So, what’s stopping you?
