Automation Engineer

Location: Northampton area, UK.


This client does not need any introductions and are considered the elite within the industry they operate in. Due to ongoing commitment to adding more automation in to their world-class engineering facility, they are now looking to appoint 2-3 automation engineers who share their creative and winning mentality to join their assembly department.

As an Automation Engineer, you will be responsible for coming up with innovative ways of automating some of their existing manual processes which can then be adopted in the production phase. This could include robotics, vision systems, motion control, metrology, high precision inspection, sensors, actuators, and more, to perform a variety of tasks.

Ideally, and between the 2-3 engineers, you will offer a multi-functional skill set which could include: PLC/HMI programming (ideally structured text language), machinery design, control systems design, robot programming, NC programming etc. The more the merrier! If you have worked within a low-volume, high-precision environment, or have worked within an R&D laboratory setting, then that also might put you in a strong position.

About you:

* Ideally educated to degree level within an engineering or software discipline.
* A background of developing concepts for automated machinery from the ground-up.
* Proven ability in one or more of the following;

* PLC/HMI/NC/Robot Programming.
* Machine design (Mechanical).
* Control Systems Design (Panel/Layout/Schematic).
* Commissioning.
* Machine Vision systems.
* Motion Controllers.
* Sensors, Drives, Motors, Actuators.

* A strong communicator with buckets of self-drive/motivation.
