Careers

Working at Zign Innovations means working on very diverse and innovative projects in a driven, creative and informal team. We are a young and fast-growing company with extensive expertise in electronics, embedded software and product development. Our engineering teams get to create a complete product from start to finish. We are no-nonsense, professional, creative, informal and always a tad stubborn!

Working at Zign Innovations

Zign Innovations was founded in 2015 with the mission to use technology to help customers transform their product ideas into actual products. We have grown very fast over the years, from 3 to around 25 people today.

As our organization grows, we are keen to nurture and maintain a work culture which we enjoy working in and which promotes our company’s success. We do not like hierarchy, even though a bit is needed when you grow. We want to maintain an open and psychologically safe culture where everyone dares to speak up and listen to each other and where differences are valued. This way we can thrive, have fun, learn and improve together. Every day.

We are working in an open office environment in Nieuwegein, just outside Utrecht. In our office, there is plenty of space to work together or to work concentrated on your own. To have a coffee together in the kitchen or on the terrace and to discuss solution for the challenges we face. Our office is easily reached by public transport, car or even by bike from Utrecht central station.

Our work

We carry out very diverse and challenging projects on behalf of our customers and partners. We focus on electronics engineering and embedded software development and the competence to manage a product development project. We work for customers from various sectors, but we have a clear focus on industrial and medical products.

For example, for the medical sector, we have developed a home breast cancer detection device. For the utility sector, we have developed a system for real-time insight to end the consumers energy consumption. We help customers create and build new products and/or services by realizing technological breakthroughs.

Max

Zign Innovations is a fresh and small company in which colleagues motivate and help each other. The flat organizational structure means that everyone is approachable and open to each other. That sometimes makes it a bit unclear who you should contact with your question, but in the end we will find the answer together!

Because we develop for different sectors and different products, a project always comes with a new technical challenge. This makes working at Zign challenging and helps us to constantly come up with new solutions. Everyone within the team is driven to achieve the best result, using everyone's expertise. Zign Innovations is a motivating and inspiring place to work!

Within sales & purchasing and quality control I work for Zign Manufacturing, the sister company of Zign Innovations. Despite the fact that I am an hour's drive from Nieuwegein, the ambitions of Zign Manufacturing immediately appealed to me. I am proud that due to the compact organization I have really made a significant contribution to the growth of the company. For example, we have implemented an ERP system and are now ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certified.

What I like about my work at Zign is that there is a lot of variety in my work. Within Zign you are heard, your ideas and comments are taken seriously and there is attention for you as an employee, but also as a person. Above all, I really enjoy my work and with my colleagues!

Zign Innovations is a compact company with a flat organization where we have short lines of communication. The great thing about this is that a decision you make yourself or with the team can have a major impact on the company. New processes or improvements can be rolled out faster because of this.

Within Zign we work with two development teams. Knowledge-sharing sessions are regularly held between these teams. We free up time at fixed times of the year to spar both within and between these teams. But we don't just do this at team level. Realizing personal goals and charting a career path is also at the core of Zign. In this way we as a company always try to improve quality and increase our knowledge.

The nice thing about working at Zign is that we receive assignments from various customers from all kinds of sectors. This makes every project a completely new challenge in which you also have to delve into the world of the customer.

After graduating from my master’s Embedded Systems in 2018, I started my career as Embedded Software Engineer at Zign innovations. What I like about us most is our drive to always improve and deliver high quality to our customers. We are not afraid of challenges and often work with cutting edge technology, pushing the limits of what’s possible. In software development we focus on good design and maintain our quality through reviews, white board sessions and continuous integration combined with hardware-in-the-loop testing. And in case you are stuck with a problem the team is always there to help you!

I started working for Zign in 2018. A typical working day at Zign is best described as a steep learning curve with a broad pallet of subjects. One day you're designing an LTE (4G) connected personal safety device with electrochemical sensors, the next you're in Paris for EMC testing on a class 2A medical device. Most of the stuff we bring to the market is designed by us from the ground up: from initial scratches on a white-board, to extensively documented and tested prototypes, to FCT and EOL tested box-build products manufactured by our partners in Europe or Asia. Working at Zign is always teamwork. It’s about combining every last bit of knowledge to complete the challenging projects we face. I am happy to be part of such a team!

A close-knit team of professionals with a can-do attitude makes for an awesome work experience. As an embedded software engineer you can work on both hardware and software related issues and learn from our in-house specialists. We support our customers from idea to mass production, so there is always something new and exciting to learn as we work on a new product design cycle.
