Are you passionate about the green transition and making renewable energy solutions happen? Do you want to participate in cutting-edge offshore wind projects in a global team and make your mark in building a foundation for a sustainable future? Here is your chance to convert aspirations into actions!

s Wind Energy business is growing, and we are looking for new colleagues to meet the growing demand for our services.

We are looking for a dedicated senior geotechnical engineer to design our offshore wind foundation projects - from conceptual design to detailed design. You will play a crucial role in managing great projects and great people, ensuring operational and technical excellence, and making our customers’ needs come true.


The Wind Energy and Renewables organization consist of 125 dedicated colleagues working from Denmark, Germany, Norway and Taiwan, while collaborating closely with energy and marine colleagues in the United Kingdom and North America. You will join a dynamic team that delivers both onshore and offshore wind energy solutions and offers full lifecycle services to our customers. We have a track record in making wind energy solutions possible even under the most demanding conditions – deep waters, on challenging soil, and in regions with high seismic activity. When offshore, we design both floating and bottom fixes structures. Since 1980, we have been involved in more than 1,000 wind power projects in 70 countries.

Our offshore wind organisation consists of dedicated specialists and project managers, covering all main design services.

Together with the rest of the geoscience team, you will strengthen your site characterization and geotechnical design skills. You will be part of the internal drive in challenging status quo design, a prerequisite to a transformative restructuring that is in line with the market need. Your skills will influence the end result and thus benefit the client. COWI's Geoscience team paves the way for some of the best practice approaches adopted across the department, and you will be working together with the rest of the team to achieve this. The team consists of engineers located in different offices who bring skills, passion and enjoy team working.

On a day-to-day basis, you will:

  • As a Design lead, provide leadership and expertise to the project team and manage the internal competence development.
  • Work as a geotechnical site assessment lead for a project from an early development phase through to construction and will be responsible for approval of designs, assessments and calculations in accordance with quality procedures and coordination of work.
  • Take part and assist in business development activities for projects varying from concept design to detailed design. Plan and scope phased geotechnical site investigation campaigns, where you will handle the technical management of such campaigns.
  • Be responsible for managing project from feasibility to detailed design, including all technical, programme and cost monitoring. Checking and ensuring that design and assessments are in accordance with the current Standards, Codes of Practice, and Best Practice.
  • Manage soil mechanics and foundation design, rock mechanics and rock mass behaviour and look into detailed design and analysis related to the project.
  • COWI is a leader within our field, because our employees are leaders within theirs. We invite you to learn from the best and expand your potential in an outstanding environment, where we collaborate on shaping tomorrow's societies. Alongside your manager, you outline the path for your development and build your expertise on a day-to-day basis, working on global and local assignments.


    Your skills are the key to our success. Working across borders and disciplines, we share knowledge and build strong relationships with colleagues and customers. You contribute your expertise and get to learn from the best.

    To succeed in this position, we believe that you should have good interpersonal skills with the ability to build effective working relationships with people at all levels across the project organisation and externally. You are structured, result oriented and are proactive in taking your own decisions.

    Furthermore, you have:

  • Experience related to offshore wind or transferrable/similar underground structures and working experience in a design environment would be an added advantage.
  • Knowledge or experience in Matlab and/or Plaxis 3D and you have used Plaxis 2D and ideally 3D modelling (or similar geotechnical modelling software)
