Automation Engineer (Senior or Intermediate)


Job Description:

Technical Recruitment Solutions

The Company

This is a small team of technical experts who engineer Industrial Automation solutions for their clients.

With Directors who own and work in the business, the company culture here is one of ownership, passion for their people, clients, industry, and technology. This is a real tight-knit team that are adaptable to clients’ needs and deliver custom automation solutions that are both in-step with current technology and push the boundaries.

Mid to large sized manufacturers are their typical clients, but they are generalist, flexible and open-minded in terms of the client industry sectors they will tackle. Reflecting this, the industry sector someone comes from is not important to them specifically when hiring.

This company is well-setup, has both existing clients and projects, and new projects bursting onto the horizon. They are stable and growing, an ideal situation for hiring. This leads me to my next point…

Does this sound like you?

Right now, the focus is on hiring Senior or Intermediate Automation Engineers in South Auckland. Though if Hamilton is where you want to be let me know too.

Ideally, we want someone who can jump on board and quickly take the lead on a project. PLC, HMI, & SCADA based projects will be your bread & butter and you will be involved in design, developing, commissioning, and on-going support.

Other interesting and specialised projects will use technology like robotics, machine vision, data reporting & analytics, and machine learning.

If you come from a more software leaning, machine automation, type background and on projects that require more data, and number crunching, this is an environment you will thrive.

Attitude is important, the team here are diligent people who take ownership for their work (methodical “do-ers”). To fit with the DNA here you will be flexible, adaptable, not set in your ways, and comfortable learning new control system platforms.
