Imagine: You look proudly from the balustrade over the fully automated warehouse of your client. The automated guided vehicles crisscross each other and bring the products to the right place. In the back of the hall, packing robots are busy preparing the transport. Recently, together with the client, you have resolved the latest malfunctions and implemented the improvement proposals you advised. Thanks to you, the processes are now even more efficient.

This is the future! Are you excited about this? Do you have the knowledge to completely unburden our clients? And do you help them to produce in a smarter, safer and more sustainable way? Then we need you as a new Service Software Engineer.

Tasks and responsibilities

You will be working with 230 enthusiastic colleagues from our offices in Zwolle and Heerenveen. Your team consists of 8 Service Software Engineers. This team specializes in both machine controls and process controls. Technical developments are moving fast as you know. That is why we invest heavily in the development of our employees. For example in the field of big data and robotics. Yes, we are technically up-to-date and can therefore always optimally advise our clients.

What do you usually do during a working day?

As a Service Software Engineer you are available 24 hours every 5 weeks for 7 days for malfunctions in operating systems and fieldbuses/networks at our clients.
You know how to solve these malfunctions from the office, at home or on location.
You support project teams with the commissioning of new construction and optimization projects.
You occasionally also work in-house with our clients on challenging projects; you analyze problems and come up with proposals for improvement.
No day is the same for you and you are therefore constantly challenged technically.

To further strengthen our team of engineers, we are looking for a Service Software Engineer: a solution-oriented technician who analyzes problems and can translate the needs of our clients into appropriate automation solutions.

  • You have experience with software development and commissioning operating systems.

We are of course mainly looking for a Service Software Engineer who suits us in terms of character, motivation and technical knowledge. In addition, our ideal candidate is most likely:

  • A technician with a completed HBO education in electrical engineering, mechatronics and/or software engineering.
  • Inquisitive, technically curious and someone who wants to continue to develop.
  • A Software Engineer for whom software from Siemens, Beckhoff, Rockwell and Wonderware knows no surprises.

Do you recognize yourself in the above points? Then you could just be our new Service Software Engineer.
