Are you the senior 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 multidisciplinary teams of engineers are looking for a senior PLC software engineer to work together with. As a true senior, you are going to be responsible for system software engineering.
