To Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions and division Stationary Crushing and Screening in Svedala, we’re looking for a Senior Automation Engineer – someone who’s passionate about development and has a drive and genuine interest for technology. Working with us means working in a decentralized organization with great opportunities to really impact our business. Welcome to our team!

Shortly about the job

In this position, you’re an important part in the creation of our new automation platform and you engage in solutions that truly make the difference for our customers. You’re responsible for development and maintenance of our systems, and you take lead in planning technical activities and managing the daily tasks of the team. As a valued and strategic expert, you work closely with the R&D department to establish a future roadmap – focusing on digitalization and automation and how we can implement this in our current production and processes.

Building strong networks with internal stakeholders, as well as with external suppliers and contractors is a vital part of your agenda, and this also means that international travel is included in the job. You carry out case studies, test automation and control systems, and contribute with your knowledge in solving complex issues together with our service engineers. On top of this, you represent our department in common technical development activities for Sandvik Rock Processing Solutions.

Your home office is in Svedala – a fast and easy commute from surrounding cities, such as Malmö, Lund and Copenhagen, and with our site located just across from the train station.

What we expect from you

You’re an innovative engineer with an in-depth technical understanding and a couple of years’ experience in the industry. Significant to the role is deep knowledge of PLC and HMI programming and you know how to analyze and develop the features in these applications. Your skills are backed by a degree in a relevant technical field, or the equivalent knowledge gained through a working career, and we consider experience of project management as a big advantage. Working with us, you’re based locally while collaborating in a global environment, which means you must have great skills in both English and Swedish.

You look at our business from a project manager's point of view – working goal oriented and proactively, and confidently leading people by inclusive communication and an inspiring manner. You establish networks that lead to successful collaborations, and you thrive in a setting where you get to share both knowledge and team spirit. Your passion for technology and innovation is something we take for granted, and we think that you enjoy both solving complex problems and explaining your findings to others.

At Sandvik, we’re tech driven, innovative and entrepreneurial. We believe that success is a team effort so we value diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive culture where people can be themselves and reach their full potential.
