  • Job Code

Application Engineers (AE) in 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 offer. They can understand complex problems and can overcome diverse obstacles to develop and realize creative and effective solutions.

This position involves being a member of the technical team for large-scale, high-complexity customer projects used in industrial automation. Our multidisciplinary team develops SCADA and Historian applications, but also augment those applications with custom software applications to meet customer needs. This entails working with Microsoft SQL databases and stored procedures, writing custom reports, or programming in C#.

The ideal candidate is familiar with systems integration using a variety of technologies. It is not expected that they have experience with all of them. A motivated and self-driven candidate with a background in a variety of technologies will be the best fit. New technologies may continue to be introduced as the Schneider Electric and AVEVA portfolios continue to grow.

The AE works as part of a project team with project managers and other engineers. The AE supports the design effort from inception through development, commissioning, and hand-off to production. AEs use existing designs, standard libraries, and QA/QC tools to meet the customer's specific site requirements within scheduled durations. AEs have the flexibility to make changes during commissioning to ensure the system is returned to production per schedule.

Depending on the projects and skillset, responsibilities may include:

  • Custom C# development, optimization, and deployment in customer IT environment

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to collaborate and succeed within a diverse team
  • Team oriented, self-motivated, and results driven
  • Strong problem solving and detective skills
  • Work according to a specified project playbook and commissioning plan while being resourceful and versatile in finding sources of information to solve problems

  • Ability to multi-task, handle conflicting priorities, triage issues, and work with the core team when needed
  • Collaborate and succeed within a diverse team

  • Willingness to travel to customer sites if needed. Most work is currently remotely but engineer may need to travel up to 25% in the future for customer meetings or deployments.

This position requires presence at customer sites, and as such, candidate must be able to obtain necessary clearance and/or credentials to travel abroad and comply with customer requirements for executing work on their site.
