Our client are a rapidly expanding manufacturer of water treatment equipment in the Scottish Borders and working on projects Worldwide.

As part of their drive to embed IoT technologies throughout their range, they are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and eager Electrical Controls Engineer to develop PLC (Codesys / Beijer HMI) and electronic (Raspberry Pi / Windows 10 IoT) control systems for a range of water treatment applications. The work will involve integration of a range of equipment including electro-mechanical systems, pumps, valves and electronic sensor technologies

Working with an established range of hardware designs and an existing codebase, you will work to further integrate leading edge software control solutions. You will work alongside a multidisciplinary team of chemists, engineers and technicians in a DevOps environment in order to quickly respond to client demands. Although primarily office based, you may be asked to deploy on a short term basis to sites worldwide in order to assist with commissioning and troubleshooting.

The role will also involve liaison with process engineers in order to develop i/o lists and software design specifications, coding the solution and documenting accordingly, working with CAD specialists to produce electrical design drawings. Thereafter, you will work with commissioning engineers to fully test and accredit the solution.

They would expect you to be HNC Qualified or above in an Electrical Engineering discipline, with the ability to code a Codesys PLC from scratch. Competence with the latest IoT Technologies including C# and XAML on the UWP platform would be a distinct advantage, although all relevant training will be provided for the correct candidate. It is vital to note that the suitable candidate will be more of a programmer than an engineer
