(PLC) Software Engineer

Job description

Is setting machines in motion your passion? Then this position is definitely for you. You get to work with the control of our machines, so that as the last link in the project you ensure that our machines do what they were developed for; packaging products. If you also like to keep yourself busy with the latest developments in software, we would like to get in touch with you!





Your challenge as a (PLC) Software Engineer
As a Software Engineer you translate the customer's wishes into concrete software programs (PLCs, servo controls, visualization software, safety, etc.). In addition to the software for standard machines, you will also have to deal with customer-specific applications. Think, for example, of projects where the speed of the machine has to be adjusted, or where the dimensions of packaging materials differ. You then also adjust the software and you test the machine in the assembly and you solve any malfunctions. There is also a challenge in this role when it comes to the latest developments in the field of control. Setting up communication between different machines and projects in the field of IoT (Internet of Things) are examples of this. Do you see anything that could be done differently or better? Then we tackle this together so that our process becomes sharper every day.


What do we offer you as a (PLC) Software Engineer?
First of all, a pleasant working environment with an open culture in which you are valued. The informal, human atmosphere ensures that you quickly feel at home with us. Furthermore, we can proudly say that you will work in a healthy and growing organization with plenty of opportunities for development and growth. During our barbecue, Christmas celebration and other fun (team) events, you will also have the opportunity to get to know your colleagues outside of work. In addition to a competitive salary, we offer you an excellent package of benefits. Think about:

  • 27 vacation days; 
  • 13 adv days; 
  • Profit-dependent allowance; 
  • Pension scheme with +/- 50% employer's contribution; 
  • 8% holiday pay; 
  • Good travel allowance; 
  • Collective health insurance;
  • Interesting discounts on "weekend breaks" and household equipment, among other things.
