Intero Integrity is a fast-growing global company offering inspection, industrial and environmental services to the energy industry. We develop our own high-tech equipment and software and use this technology to execute projects worldwide. We support the energy industry to use natural resources efficiently, safely and responsibly. Together we get the job done and contribute to a safer and more sustainable world.

About our Technology Center

The Technology Center designs and engineers Intero’s high-tech inspection robots, develops the software to operate them and trains our people to use the technology in the field. These compact, battery operated systems contain highly sensitive analog front-end electronics and high-speed digital signal processing, which need to operate for long duration in a harsh environment.

To support the growth of our Technology Center in the Netherlands, we are looking for an ambitious Embedded Systems Engineer with a focus on FPGA design. You will become part of a close, diverse and multi-disciplinary team that is hand-on, engaged and result driven. You will be involved in innovative projects from start to finish: defining requirements, conceptual design, technical feasibility, low-level design, component and module testing followed by integration and system-testing. Soon after completing the prototype, you will see the system taken into production and into the field!


  • Collaborate with engineers of other disciplines to find innovative solutions
  • Participate in the conceptual design phase
  • Create functional design and define sub-system architecture & specifications
  • Participate in the hardware design of onboard electronics
  • Create architecture & interfaces of functionality that will be implemented in FPGA, softcore or hardcore processor
  • Take responsibility for the low-level design of the embedded system (VHDL / C-code)
  • Create a test plan to verify the design and develop the test environment
  • Together with hardware and software engineers, bring up board(s), sub-systems and system to verify functionality and performance
  • Participate in the development and testing of software
  • After the prototype phase, assist in getting the systems production-ready
