System Engineer

Tractebel Engineering

Brussels, Belgium

Your function

Within a project team (possibly a mixed Client-Engineering team), the system engineer is the guarantor of the integrity and coherence of the system and subsystems development necessary for the intensive exploitation of the infrastructure by meeting the requirements of high level performance, availability and safety that are expected.

Within the scope of the function, the system engineer ensures the development of this system activity (design and validation) according to the project development V-model principles.

The system engineer actively participates in the definition of WBS and registers in successive design reviews, as a key player in system coherence.

The system engineer is responsible and the guarantor for system development, particularly in project management procedures and in the monitoring of the interfaces matrix management (functional, performance and security).

The system engineer acts as permanent interface with the holders of those functions: Power Traction, Rail track, Signaling, Radio Communication, Real-Time Supervision.

The system engineer also defines the system allocation to the various subsystems and their expected performance level (RAMS).

Throughout the project engineering implementation cycle, the system engineer ensures that system allocation to each subsystem is processed in a consistent and coherent way, at least:

  • Requirements management
  • Configuration management
  • Interface management
  • RAM performances
  • Verification and Validation Plan
  • Tests and Trials management

As such, the system engineer is the internal referent in the project engineering organization regarding the control of the requirements specific to these allocation systems.

The system engineer is in interface with the business specialists in charge of development/specification/implementation and acceptance/commissioning of installations and/or equipment of the global system.


Your profile

  • Industrial or electromechanical engineer with a specialization in servo control/automated systems, or industrial systems engineering possibly developed beyond the initial studies.
  • At least 15 years of experience in industrial project management (from a system point of view) and whatever the industrial sector concerned. Those years of experience must include at least 5 years in system infrastructure projects, possibly declined on some sub-systems. The developed experience in system engineering within one or two relevant railway project (infrastructure and/or rolling stock) from design to commissioning is a real plus.
  • Value Engineering experience.
  • Proven experience in the field of guided transport or rail transport, and knowledge of standards and associated rules governing the sector: in particular EN 50124-50126-50128-50129.
  • Ability to analyze and understand all the issues resulting from the various levels of requirements and to ensure their consistency.
  • Ability to structure the formalized iterative design exchanges between the different technical functions of the system, as well as the verification and validation process prior to the structuring phase of commissioning tests and trials.
  • Ability to adopt a critical approach regarding the hypotheses and synthesis of RAMS studies conducted by a RAMS engineer and to challenge those in terms of reliability / availability and safety.
  • Ability to argue and challenge those hypotheses (not simply renew it).
  • Ability to calculate an analytical budget structure.
  • Ability to face challenges and meet deadlines.
  • Ability to work within a team, on a common methodology.
  • Ability to synthesize and analyze during the exchanges between the different actors in charge of the sub-systems.
  • Very good writing skills in French and English of the system approach.
