Control Systems Integrator


Job Description:

Technical Recruitment Solutions

– Auckland based Control Systems Integrator role

– Varied sector work with large clients

– Very Minimal Travel, local clients

The Company

Our Auckland based client is a well-established Industrial Control Systems Integrator in New Zealand. They are a tight knit team who work on design, install, and service projects that are primarily in or near Auckland. You will get to work on automation systems across a wide range of different industries and interesting projects, a great place to learn and remain at the pointy end of being a technically savvy systems integrator at the intersection of industrial automation, systems integration, and database / MES type work.

Due to continuing growth in the Auckland region this company needs another experienced Systems Integrator to work with their well-known and reputable clients.

The Role

You will need to have a strong existing skillset as a Systems Integrator with the ability to think as an engineer, look at the process and equipment to be automated, convert this process to a well thought out and well-structured code for PLC, HMI & SCADA systems, and be able to work capably and independently on client sites.

As a Systems Integrator you will likely be able to demonstrate experience across a range of automation platforms. For this role we do need specific experience with Rockwell PLC’s, SCADA, and HMI. Experience with Wonderware and/or Citect SCADA packages would be ideal too.

We do need someone who understands process automation as opposed to standalone machinery automation, someone who can develop and program to functional descriptions and integrate control systems with PLC and plant wide SCADA systems, an experienced ‘jack of all automation’ type of person.

You will be given independence to run your own jobs, talk to clients directly, and will need to be someone comfortable and happy with going to a client site to do project work, troubleshoot and work on existing systems. Systems Integrators are continuously working in different environments, on different processes, and working on code written by different people, so you need to be someone who can adapt and work with this level of variety and complexity, work your way through it, and make the relevant programming design decisions and modifications.

You will be joining a small team of capable, mature, and friendly engineers. This is a place you will be given the tools to thrive and work independently on your own projects. Due to the nature of the job you may work between the office, client sites, and at home.

What Travel? As the majority of the company’s clients are based in or near Auckland, the level of travel for this role is very minimal in comparison to roles like this at many other companies. They do have some work in Fiji (a good time to tack on some annual leave I hear you thinking) and I am told the average level of travel annually is only about 2 trips away at 1 to 2 weeks in trip length.
