Are you ready to handle great complexities as you develop technology that colleagues all over the world will use? And do you want to grow professionally from taking your software development skills with you in a suitcase for up to 80 days a year?

Then join us as we raise our level of automation, which is already among the highest in our industry. And it does not stop there – you will play a critical role in the development of new technologies for our “Factory of the Future”, where the sky is the limit.

This is who we are

You will join a team of 8 colleagues working with software development within the Operational Technology & Electrical Project Management section, consisting of 30 people. Here, we develop the standardised technologies that colleagues all over ROCKWOOL use as a basis for developing localised technologies.
Creating and delivering on everything from machines and production equipment to entire production lines, we are highly specialised within our fields – and great at using each other’s skill sets to overcome the technological challenges we face.

“Helpfulness is a fundamental part of our DNA, and we naturally share our knowledge when we learn something new,” your future Section Manager Karsten Madsen explains.

This is the role

You will be responsible for the development, maintenance and support of our software systems for automation, control and manufacturing execution. Your assignments can vary from small machine deliveries and support cases to participation in large factory construction projects on a global scale.
You will be responsible for your own deliveries in ad hoc project teams with a hardware engineer, a mechanical engineer and a project manager. Typically, you will be involved in 2-5 projects at a time. More specifically, you will:
• Use your programming skills in PLC and SCADA control systems
• Assist us in our ongoing development of the Siemens Total Integrated Automation (TIA) platform and become our in-house expert on the platform
• Coordinate specific projects with our local factories and the rest of the project team involved
• Train colleagues from all over ROCKWOOL in the solutions we develop
• Handle requests for third-line support from our factories

Because your competencies will be used all over the world, you can expect to travel – up to 80 days a year.

This is what you offer

Since you will be the only one responsible for your area of expertise within your project teams, it is important that you have confidence in your own abilities as an engineer. At the same time, you enjoy collaborating with others, and you are curious to work with people with different nationalities.
We furthermore imagine that you:
• Could be an electrical/electronics engineer, a mechanical engineer with programming skills or have an education within IT – if you have just finished your education, we would like to hear from you as well
• Have working experience with the Siemens TIA platform – but if you are a strong programmer who is willing to learn, we would still like to hear from you
• Preferably have SCADA programming experience.

This is what we offer

We prioritise the necessary resources – both when investing in our software development and in our own professional development. You can therefore look forward to continuous training that will keep your skills sharp and your knowledge new.
“You can also branch out into project management, if you have the skills and the wish to do so – one thing is for sure, your time at ROCKWOOL won’t be stagnant,” Karsten concludes.
Hopefully, you will be as proud as we are to work in a company that is also at the forefront when it comes to sustainability. For example, we are investing massively in clean sources of energy for our production sites – and in the Nordics, we have already reduced our CO2 emissions with 70% compared to 1990.
