Application Engineer - Ecostruxure Advisor Software Integration

Schneider Electric USA, Inc
Alpharetta, GA 30009
  • Job Code
Application Engineers (AE) in Schneider Electric are highly motivated and pragmatic individuals who demonstrate excellent communication skills coupled with deep technical knowledge of the customer process as well as the Schneider Electric offer. They can understand complex industrial problems and can overcome diverse obstacles to develop and realize creative and effective solutions.

This position involves developing applications using Schneider Electric's Ecostruxure Advisors in industrial automation settings. EcoStruxure is Schneider Electric's IoT-enabled, plug-and-play, open architecture and platform. Advisors are software modules within the platform.

The ideal candidate will have experience with software configuration in industrial automation or manufacturing environments. The AE will work directly with the customer throughout each project to help deliver results. They may join the sales team as a consultant to help understand the requirements and design each solution. The AE will install the software packages and configure them with all site-specific data. After configuration and application development, the AE will commission the system onsite or remotely and train users as needed. The AE will work alongside a Project Manager throughout the process.

Because these are newer products, it is not expected that the AE already has experience with them. The ideal candidate is a motivated self-starter who is used to problem solving and looking to become a subject matter expert. Depending on qualifications, the candidate may get a chance to work on other SCADA and Smart Factory initiatives as well.

The three main Advisors that the AE will be trained on are:

  • Augmented Operator Advisor - Improves operational efficiency with augmented reality, enabling operators to superimpose current data and documentation onto a cabinet, machine, or plant via their tablet's camera.
  • Machine Advisor - A digital cloud-based services platform. Machine builders can include it to provide new remote services to their customers as they deploy their machines worldwide.
  • Secure Connect Advisor - A secure access method to allows operators to remotely access industrial automation systems. Once they are connected, they can program and monitor devices.

  • Systems Integration or Software Configuration expertise
