As an Automation Engineer, you are the subject-matter expert for all control systems and sensors within a building. You actively monitor, find faults and repair systems in order to provide a high level of equipment availability.

What you typically do:

  • You work within the EU Controls network to enhance the capability to monitor Material Handling Equipment metrics and provide visualisation and data to internal customers by troubleshooting and prioritising.
  • You actively participate in projects or work on your own continuous improvement projects coordinated by the EU Controls network.
  • You collaborate with IT, EU Controls Engineering and Operations Engineering to ensure that all systems are correctly documented and accurate backup libraries are maintained.
  • You train technicians in the basics of control-systems fault finding in order to raise the level of knowledge within the site.
