Lead Engineer - Smart Factory Software Integration

Schneider Electric USA, Inc
Alpharetta, GA 30009
  • Job Code

Lead Engineers (LE) at Schneider Electric are highly motivated and pragmatic individuals who demonstrate excellent communication and relationship skills coupled with deep technical knowledge of the customer process as well as the Schneider Electric and AVEVA offers. They can understand complex industrial problems and can overcome diverse obstacles to design, develop and realize creative and effective solutions.

This position involves designing and developing Smart Factory applications by integrating Schneider Electric and AVEVA software packages. The LE will digitize lean manufacturing processes to enable data-driven performance improvements in customers' discrete manufacturing environments. AVEVA's Discrete Lean Management ("DLM") will be the primary software package being used, but other packages from AVEVA's suite may also be leveraged, such as Historian, Manufacturing Execution System (MES), Teamwork, and HMI/SCADA packages. It is not expected that the candidate has expertise in all these packages on day one.

The ideal candidate will have significant lean manufacturing domain expertise and experience. The LE will work directly with the customer throughout their digital transformation journey to help them improve productivity and analyze performance. They may join the sales team as a consultant to help design a solution tailored to each customer's needs. The LE will gather all required data and develop the applications in-house. Finally, the LE will travel to the customer site to commission the system and train the users. Application Engineers (AE) may assist with any of these tasks depending on the project-specific needs. The LE will work alongside a Project Manager throughout the process.

  • Excellent communication skills, gaining customer trust, and collaborating with other engineers
