First things first! It is important that you are willing to move to Arnhem. Elestor is a renowned company and is willing to help you with a work visa. If you are not willing to move, we ask you not to apply.

As Software Engineer, you actively contribute to various industrial automation projects in which you will encounter challenges in a hands-on working and learning position. Your ultimate responsibility is maintaining and troubleshooting software modules with additional activities like designing software modules to automate tasks (e.g., PCBs and embedded circuits). Elestor's Software Engineer focuses on a range of small-scale (prototype) to large-scale (customer) projects in a company that's building a whole new class of assets for (long-duration) energy storage.

It's an opportunity for curious individuals with the desire (need!) to be in the middle of innovation and have an innate drive to contribute to the energy transition.

You will be part of the Electrical & Automation (E&A) team and report to the Team Leader of E&A.

  • Design of software modules in various languages (e.g., JavaScript, Python, TIA portal, and SQL)
  • Prepare and participate in the commissioning of automation systems
  • Schedule, maintain, and troubleshoot various automation software
  • Prepare Human Machine Interfaces and monitoring dashboards
  • Maintain and backup databases Challenge the status quo and contribute to 21st-century engineering ways of working

Elestor is looking for an all-round software engineer willing to learn, design and troubleshoot (a combination of thinking and doing). You are proactive and pragmatic in your behavior (and communication) and not afraid to challenge the status quo. Taking ownership of various assignments at once (while running multiple projects simultaneously) fits your ability to plan and execute accordingly. In addition, striving for ownership and slowly taking over responsibilities provides you with a lot of motivation (and energy)! Do you meet the profile below?
