Job Description

We are looking for multi-skilled Software Engineers who are quick to pick up new skills, and have a 'knack' for making things work. The ideal candidates have industrial software experience in an automation setting, backed up with robust understanding of engineering concepts from a STEM degree.

Our products are varied in scope and field. From simple machines processing a dedicated task, to complex customisable cells with many robots, production steps and integrated technologies ranging from cameras, lasers, waterjet cutters and even chainsaws. Our bespoke machinery can be very complex, however it's vital that it remains easy to use and operate.

As our new Software Engineer, you will be responsible for developing software using a diverse codebase:

  • Backend software in C# .NET, collecting & processing data from sources such as: 2D/3D vision systems; mathematical modelling & simulation; hardware & software integration.

  • Human machine interfaces (HMI) based on the Blazor framework (C#, HTML & CSS), WPF, or more traditional platforms such as Siemens WinCC.

  • Machine controls on industrial PLCs, programmed using IEC 61131-3 languages. Utilising advanced functionality to achieve precise motion control, and integrating with the latest fieldbus networks for real-time data transfer.

  • Advanced motion control, using real-time C++ to synchronise hundreds of axes.

  • Industrial robots, and our own in-house devices, each require in-depth knowledge for commissioning and programming using proprietary languages (KRL, TP, KAREL, G-Code).

This is a role where no two days, or projects, are the same. The successful applicant will have a passion for robotics and automation, be curious & inquisitive, and a natural problem solver. They will work on their own initiative to learn new technologies, and have an eye for detail and design.

Essential skills and experience

  • 2+ years industrial programming experience (C# preferable)

  • STEM degree with a solid understanding of engineering concepts

  • Passion for learning new skills and solving problems

  • Ability to communicate at a technical level, in both written and verbal English

  • Able to work on own initiative and autonomously

  • Willing and able to travel

Desirable skills and experience

  • C# experience (.NET, ASP.NET)

  • Web design experience (HTML, CSS, JavaScript)

  • Experience in engineering environments

  • PLC programming (IEC61131-3)

  • Embedded programming (C/C++) e.g. ARM Cortex M/ESP32/Arduino

  • Experience developing and maintaining full stack web applications
