Why we need you as a PLC Software Engineer

A machine at Voortman Steel Machinery is so much more than some mechanical and electrical parts combined. In our areas of expertise we are known for our high end automatic production lines. The software that enabled these production lines makes us stand up from the crowd. Therefore we strive every day for newer, better and faster software solutions.

Your goal?
One of our objectives is to make sure that operators can do their work in the most efficient way possible. Due to our software solutions, their manual activities can be put to a minimum. This is where you come in to join our team of 20 Software Engineers!

What your day could look like
As a PLC Software Engineer you will be working in the team of PLC Engineers. For our newly developed machines you will be working closely with Voortman’s Mechanical and Electrical Engineers.
  • Together you will decide how to solve each problem.
  • With the team you will design and engineer the software in the office.
  • In our factory, which is located just across the hall, you will be able to test your software on the machine for immediate feedback.

Our PLC software is working with Beckhoff TwinCAT 2 and 3, which is based on Codesys. The software that makes our machines run is a combination of .NET and PLC. They are delivered as one package to the client.

What are we looking for?
We love to work with colleagues who are eager to learn, are team players and take their energy to work. Of course we do not have to tell you that you like to get your hands dirty and have a passion for engineering! Overall you match the following criteria:
  • Bachelor or Master level
  • Minimum of 1 year of work experience as a PLC Software Engineer
  • Knowledge of Beckhoff/Codesys, structured text and OO programming is preferred
  • You are independent and like to take initiative
  • Feel right in place with your Dutch and informal colleagues

Due to the current composition of the team we are specifically looking for new colleagues who have a (basic) understanding of the Dutch language and culture. International candidates are very welcome, but we do require a legit working permit.

Voortman Steel Machinery: your new employee?
At Voortman Steel Machinery we work with over 300 colleagues around the world. We invent and develop all type of solutions for our clients in the steel procession industry. We realize completely automated machinery for steel procession like drilling, drawing, plasma cutting etc. At our head office in Rijssen, the Netherlands departments like Engineering (R&D), Operations, Sales & Marketing and Project Management are all working on our machines.
