Function description

Who are we?
The Aa en Maas Water Board provides safe dikes, clean water and dry feet in the eastern part of the province of North Brabant. Climate change causes rising sea levels, higher peak river discharges and subsidence. These changes increase the risk of flooding in sensitive areas. And as a data expert, you can do something about that! As a digital transformer in water safety, you provide data on better risk assessments, accurate predictions and new possibilities to issue warnings, among other things.

This is wher
the Aa en Maas Water Board in the east of Brabant provides safe, sufficient, clean and natural water. We are an ambitious organisation that optimally serves the interests of society. We deliver a high level of reliability on a daily basis and at the same time, with a view to the future, we are constantly faced with new challenges.

Your team
You are part of the Flood risk management department from which the flood risk management projects are carried out. The team is a fun and special mix of approximately twenty employees with different disciplines, including digital experts, modelers, testers, environment managers and administrators and technical implementers. This composition forms a unique club of professional, open and informal colleagues. Together you share a love for data, technology, environment, soil and water. There is a great deal of commitment to water safety projects and all the risks associated with climate change.

What are you gonna do
All water safety projects and processes run on a data basis. Without careful data and calculations, we are unable to intervene in a timely manner in (threatening) situations. Think of floods or damage to agriculture, nature and the economy due to extreme drought. So you could say that your expertise saves lives and nature.
You make the digital transformation in our field visible through a range of actions, for example by initiating, tracking and implementing digital innovations such as digital twins and parametric dyke design. You will also contribute to the setting up and implementation of processes concerning information management of satellite data, soil data and measurements. In addition, you build, connect and maintain various databases for asset management applications.
In addition to being a technical specialist, you are also a knowledge broker and you share and advise on information about your specialism within the water board. You will indicate the development direction of projects or the field of digitisation and support the information management of Flood risk management projects. You are also innovative internally: the optimisation of working methods and processes is an important theme within Aa en Maas and you are actively involved in this by providing input and contributions to the information plan of the Flood risk management department.
