HydroLogic – ‘Anticipatory Water Management’

Climate change and a fast-growing population in cities forces water professionals to deal more often with excessive rainfall, (flash)floods, water quality issues, longer periods of drought and rising sea levels. Easy access to the right information is essential to reduce impacts and risks before, during and after events.

We are market leader in the field of precipitation information for water management in the Netherlands and abroad. More than 2500 water professionals worldwide use our HydroNET web-portal to make well-informed and transparent decisions for the analysis and sustainable management of their water resources.

We are a high-tech company, with offices in Amersfoort and Delft. We make a difference by working on the most complex water-model and ICT systems.

We like to spend time on supervising excellent students of hydrology, physical geography, geo-informatics or ICT, who like to do their internships or final studies with us. Got your MSc or PhD and looking for a job? Send an open application to
