PLC Software Engineer

Let's make impact together!

Are you the PLC software engineer we’re looking for?

To face the challenges in the current, ever-changing world, for example in the fields of health, sustainability, digitization and mobility, creativity is exactly the characteristic making all the difference. After all, the solution to develop and to take ourselves further in life, is not always the one expected. And, keep in mind, the only way to level us up, is by ensuring you grow yourself.

As one of our PLC talents, we consider your skill set to be very unique: a logical and methodological way of thinking, extensive and up to date knowledge of machinery related fields and, more than anything, doses of creativity and empathy. After all, to get a machine working with the absolute goal to maximize our customers’ production performance, the perspective of the user has to be taken as jumping-off point. To complete successfully, a meticulous start is essential. Therefore, you, in the role of PLC programmer, are part of Tegema’s multidisciplinary team from the very beginning onwards.

Currently, our wonderful PLC team is looking for two new members: one junior programmer and as well an experienced software engineer who is going to set the architecture of our machine platform. You will be working on our high tech machinery equipment ranging from gantry axes, robots and cobots, hexapods, HMI’s Industry 4.0 data communication and –logging technologies. Together with you, we will build Tegema 2.0 and take it to the next level – that is why you, as a software engineer, have substantial impact.

Are you ready for the next step in your career? Are you eager to learn and to contribute to the development of solutions never built before?
