As a Commissioning & Service Engineer, Bogdan has a very diverse job, with activities ranging from commissioning to maintenance. The technology keeps advancing, so you have to keep up-to-date. Bogdan explains why he chose Alewijnse.

Previously Bogdan worked in Romania as a 20-year-old service coordinator. His first introduction to the Netherlands was a three-week training course at a company in Drachten. He immediately fell in love with the Netherlands. He made it his goal to move there, but Bogdan first wanted to finish his studies. “After I had completed my bachelor's degree, I started applying for jobs. After several interviews, I got the opportunity to join Alewijnse. I was invited to come to the Netherlands for a day to meet the team. They showed me exactly what the job entailed. I immediately recognised that Alewijnse is a professional company that I really wanted to be a part of.”

Bogdan moved from Romania to the Netherlands. He now feels completely at home here. “The communications between colleagues is always very smooth. We speak English most of the time, but I am also learning Dutch. The people I work with help me, so it's improving more and more. I also regularly meet up with Romanian colleagues, so of course we speak Romanian now and then.”

At Alewijnse, I immediately got the chance to expand my technical knowledge and further develop my skills. As a result, I'm getting better and better at my job.

"The Netherlands is well-known worldwide for its shipbuilding expertise. I always wanted to be the crème de la crème in my profession and, in my opinion, that meant working for Alewijnse. Alewijnse has a rich history of many great projects. It is a company driven by people who are passionate about technology and love new challenges. It delivers state-of-the-art solutions and that attracted me immediately. The cooperation with top brands in the field of navigation and communication completes its attraction for me. It all adds up to making Alewijnse a unique company in the market."

"At Alewijnse, I immediately got the chance to expand my technical knowledge and further develop my skills. As a result, I'm getting better and better at my job. I like the colleagues around me and the flexibility. There is a good team spirit and we all have a professional attitude. I love working with people who are highly motivated by technology."

The satisfaction of a customer when we have installed our solutions is a great motivator for me to keep improving and to perform at a better level, project after project.

“I am proud of the fact that I have been able to develop myself over the years. Now I am more specialised in the field of NavCom. Our projects are truly unique! Together with my colleagues, I get to go to the most extraordinary places. That is where the vessels are that need our attention. The best feeling is to leave a satisfied customer at the end of a project, then you know: we did it together!” says Bogdan smiling.

"In addition to working as part of a great team, I like the fact that we have projects all over the world and that as a Commissioning & Service Engineer you often work on-site. This way, you always see new countries and places. The satisfaction of a customer when we have installed our solutions is a great motivator for me to keep improving and to perform at a better level, project after project."
