Position Summary We are looking for Functional Leads! In our line of work (industrial software engineering), Functional Leads are the keystone of successful project delivery. They are the interface between two worlds that need to understand each other:
the Manufacturing world, where Functional Leads must discuss requirements with production supervisors, drive specification workshops, execute training, work on presales activities and quotations, deliver demos and model manufacturing processes with new tools.
The Software Engineering world, where Functional Leads must actively participate in the design of system extensions that match functional requirements, write functional and design specifications, support teams of developers and testers in delivering meaningful solutions.
Our solutions are centered on Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and Data Analytics that aim at bridging the gap between Enterprise level tools (ERP, such as SAP) and the automation layer, with the objective of collecting and aggregating production data for traceability, reporting, performance and quality. Working within the MES field means finding the right balance between standard systems and customer specific requirements, while considering constraints and challenges at the level of a production site. We encourage innovative minds to anticipate future needs and deliver the best solutions to our customers. The range of our delivery projects vary between small (eg: proof of concept / pilot for 1 production line, Fit-Gap Analysis projects) and very large (multi-site deployments of Core systems across several countries).
