+++Highlights – extremely varied work, company is an OEM that’s developing “first of their kind machines”, innovation driven, well-established department, international group+++

Samuel Frank is recruiting for an OEM based in North Yorkshire as they’re looking for a Software Engineer to join their service team on a staff basis. Good knowledge of PLCs is expected; the successful Software Engineer will have likely worked for an end-user and is a strong fault-finder on PLCs and can make PLC code changes where required.

Key aspects of the Software Engineer role include –

  • Need to have an appreciation of both Siemens & Rockwell PLCs (code interrogation, changes, upgrades etc.)
  • Software Engineer role would be roughly 80/20 in terms of factory/office vs field service based activities – factory located in between Leeds and York
  • Suit a Software Engineer working for an end user looking to get more involved with PLCs and ultimately have the opportunity to move into Engineering and learn how to program from scratch
  • You’d be allocated to a Principal Engineer who would help guide and mentor
  • Any knowledge of Siemens Simotion would be highly advantageous – not essential
  • UK & international travel – typical trips will be 1-2 weeks in duration and a rough estimate on international trips is 3-4 times per year
  • Ideally have knowledge of high speed packaging machinery
  • When not working on customer sites, the successful Field Service Engineer will finish work at lunchtimes on Fridays
  • Hours worked over 39 per week will be paid at x1.5 Monday to Saturday and x2.0 on Sundays
  • Minimal reactive work involved – most site work is pre-planned, especially international trips
  • Access to company vehicle when needed for site work (doesn’t include day to day commuting to work)

The company’s premises are commutable from the following locations Leeds, Selby, Wetherby, Harrogate, Ripon, York, Pontefract, Doncaster, Hull / East Yorkshire and Wakefield. Please apply today for an immediate response.
