Your mission

As our new PLC programmer (m/f/d) you will become a central member of our R&D team with expertise in the field of industrial automation technology. You are the go-to expert when it comes to customizing the control system of our systems and you are the link between our Hardware Team and IT. 

  • You create concepts for the control of our system;
  • In the Beckhoff TwinCAT 3 environment you program PLC controllers and further develop our existing software structure;
  • In case of changes you take the control system including HMI and periphery of our plants back into operation;
  • You develop new applications for the interaction of axes and industrial robots;
  • Independently you take over new projects and see where there is a need for optimization;
  • You version your code with Git;
  • You take over overall system responsibility - from safety engineering to programming the HMI and communication with an industrial robot.You see, your tasks are anything but monotonous and boring.

Your profile

  • You study electrical engineering, mechanical engineering or information technology;
  • You bring along knowledge in programming of SPS controls (if possible with Beckhoff TwinCAT 3);
  • You have good knowledge in developing .NET applications with C# (optional: GUI development with Krypton);
  • The following technologies are known to you: EtherCat / OPC / ADS / TCP / IP; TwinSafe; Programming languages IEC 61131-3 (LD, FBD, Structured Text);
  • You have already made first experiences with Git and agile working;
  • You are familiar with the operation and control of servo drive technology;
  • You are highly motivated to develop and program future machine applications;
  • You speak good English. German is desirable, but not a must.

Why us?

Every day we live a company culture based on humor, openness, freedom and team spirit. In short: "Truly be yourself, speak your mind, self-reflect, be self-determined and confident about our team and work."

  • Be part of an emerging robotics start-up;
  • Find your own challenges and develop your personal and professional skills;
  • Look forward to regular team events (e.g. skiing, bowling or Oktoberfest - as soon as the situation allows it);
  • Experience our office dog Anton, delicious espresso from a chrome-plated wonder machine and probably the biggest beanbag you have ever seen.
