We currently have four vacancies for exciting roles in vehicle modelling and software and content development, working across our sectors of motorsport, automotive, R&D and marine. All positions are based in our Ijburg, Amsterdam headquarters, where successful applicants will work alongside and be supported by leading experts in the simulator and simulator software industry. Please see below for more information on each position and contact with a covering letter and CV to apply.


Models & Systems Development Engineer

In this role, you will be responsible for developing vehicle models and integrated systems for simulators for the motorsports, automotive, R&D and naval markets. You will also develop the technology, software and products incorporated in Cruden simulators, working with Matlab Simulink software to develop these models. This team-based position requires someone who is flexible and pragmatic, able to learn on the job and work autonomously as well as contribute to our dynamic, skill-set varied team. Advanced Matlab Simulink skills are a prerequisite for this role.

C# Developer (Unity skills)

As a technical artist, you will be responsible for developing software solutions in C# for simulators for the automotive, motorsports, R&D and Marine markets. There is currently a gap between software scientists who develop the main software architecture with unity, and content developers who model the graphical representations of scenery. This position, therefore, requires liaising with both teams to both to stream the continued development of the main simulation software architecture, as well as developing Unity-based applications within the existing architecture. A prior professional experience with Unity in simulation is vital to this job.


Project Manager

Cruden is looking for a motivated project manager to join its team. The role will be responsible for leading and managing simulator installations and ongoing technical matters for customers in the professional motorsports, automotive, R&D and training markets. The project manager will be able to focus on achieving deadlines and assure solutions are realised to the highest standard, on time and within budget. The project manager will be responsible from the beginning of the project until the post-installation handover and commissioning at the customer’s site. This is not a largely desk-based job; the position involves active project implementation. There is a requirement to control and manage a portfolio of multiple projects simultaneously and a duty to report on progress through Cruden’s administrative system to the operations manager. The ideal candidate will be motivated, flexible and extremely pragmatic. The role will not suit those with a preference for a “9 to 5” job. The candidate must be willing to travel globally and work autonomously as well as in a team. A passion for cars or motorsport is an advantage. Good communication skills are essential, especially as the project manager is the key interface between the company and our diverse customer base. LinkedIn listing:


Mechanical Engineer

Cruden is looking for a Mechanical Engineer to join its team. Within this role you would be responsible for designing mechanical solutions. You are part of a project team and central to the mechanical design process, from concept to assembly. Design projects can vary from integrating simulator components in a standard tub, to the complete development of a new 6-DOF simulator including access and safety systems and projection.

Cruden is looking for a real team player; as a Mechanical Engineer you are an important part of a project team. You work together with the project manager, project engineers, software engineers and workshop technicians, but you also have direct contact with the customer in order to coordinate the design requirements and wishes.
