Project Engineer

BigLift Shipping is looking for you! We need you to prepare marine heavy lift operations and execute them worldwide. Does the following suit you?

• Execute projects from A-Z;
• Out-of-the-box transport solutions;
• Travel internationally;
• Use your brains and boots.

BigLift is the world leader in heavy cargo transport. With a fleet of 22 state of the art ships complex cargo operations are day-to-day business. BigLift offers you a unique combination of die-hard engineering and boots on deck project execution.

Projects vary from installation of large harbour cranes over 50m tall which have to be placed meticulously accurate on rails, to multiple shipments of refinery modules as tall as apartment buildings across rough oceans, to building wharf decks as wide as 8 lane highways and moving delicate luxurious yachts.

To achieve commercial success, the ships are often pushed to their limits. Think of crane capacities, space and cargo requirements, and structural integrity of the ship, the cargo and the seafastening. Every transport requires detailed preparations, calculations and analysis.

You will be heavily involved in project preparations as well as execution on site. You will have a lot of freedom to make the project a success. Need project specific lifting gear? Go ahead. Does the cargo require a specifically designed support system? Your job. Not only to design, but also to subcontract steel works, make sure that it’s delivered on time, and to use it on site. You will be constantly developing new tools and engineering methods, together with the engineering team and operational experts.

If you are specialist on hydrodynamics, willing to travel internationally, taking responsibility for the safe execution of projects and not afraid to dig in to engineering theories, then BigLift has the right job for you. You will qualify for the job with a Master’s or Bachelor’s degree in marine, mechanical or civil engineering and with 5-10 years of relevant work experience. Affinity with hydrodynamics and experience with DNVGL-ST-N001 is required.
