This position will perform duties in planning, designing and debugging of schematics and software for machines, and other mechanically functioning equipment.

They will be working on anywhere from 1-3 projects at a time, one would be the main project they are working on and the others would be smaller.

Programming from scratch is the most critical part of this role because 85% of this job will be making the machines/equipment work, and the other 15% of the job will be making it better (troubleshooting/debugging)

When a project is won, they will have a kick off meeting with the hardware controls team, mechanical team and applications team and they will execute from there. Once the programs have been written they will still have see the project through debugging, run off, and installation at the customer sites.

This company has been picking up quite a bit of business from current and new clients who are requiring Siemens so they need to add a strong controls engineer to the team.

They will provide relocation allowance that will be negotiable depending on area they are relocating from.
