Commissioning Engineer

Are you a commissioning engineer looking for a challenge? Does a technical scale up environment makes you smile? Do you believe that buildings can become your personal assistant?  Are you keen to apply your talents for bringing international project to life with our smart buildings technology?  Are you punctual, disciplined, cost conscious and resistant to pressure? Then read on!


bGrid is a fast-growing technology and innovation company based in Amsterdam. The company was founded in 2015 based on the conviction that working becomes more efficient and enjoyable by designing smart buildings that are good for the environment, the occupants of the building and the building owners. bGrid has achieved this through a smart sensor network that can be integrated with the known building management systems and lighting on one hand, and interact with individual users on the other. To support the delivery of these products and services, bGrid develops mobile devices and sensor units, data management systems, data processing algorithms and data interfaces aka “Internet of Things (IoT)” solutions. bGrid works in cooperation with international technology partners and integrators, and executes projects for commercial real estate.

Your role

In this role you will work in a multi-disciplinary team on the implementation of our Smart Building Solution, starting in the engineering stage and up to testing, delivery and operations.
