This is a full time position based in Sheffield which involves designing and developing new PLC-based automation control solutions, as well as optimising existing automation technologies, for process plant equipment. The role will also involve reviewing customer requirements, creating functional design specifications and maintaining technical files. The successful candidate will need to rapidly develop a firm understanding of system design and safety concepts, and be able to debug, troubleshoot and offer general technical support for ITM electrolyser systems.
