My client is looking for talented PLC Engineers to join their team!

Do you have a passion for automation and a broad skillset encompassing mechanical, software, and electrical disciplines? Are you fluent in German and eager to collaborate on building innovative, highly automated machines? If so, we want to hear from you!

About the Role:

  • Develop and implement automation solutions for custom-built machines (OEM/SPMs)
  • Collaborate across disciplines (mechanical, software, electrical) to design and build entire machines
  • Translate engineering concepts into clear and concise instructions for software engineers
  • Extensive experience with automation technologies is a must
  • Proficiency in PLC programming and a strong understanding of automation principles are required

You are a perfect fit if you:

  • Have a broad engineering background with experience in multiple disciplines (mechanical, software, electrical) - being an expert in all is not necessary
  • Possess a strong understanding of automation systems and their application
  • Are a clear communicator, able to effectively relay technical details to both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Are fluent in German (minimum B2 level) and can confidently communicate with customers
  • Are eager to learn and adapt to new technologies

The Perks:

  • Work on challenging and rewarding projects, building innovative machines
  • Opportunity to collaborate with a talented and passionate team
  • Work-life balance with home office options (not a fully remote role)
  • Competitive salary and benefits package
  • Be part of a growing company at the forefront of automation technology

Please note that this is a local position in Switzerland and fluency in German is essential.
