Where do you work?

A machine at Voortman Steel Machinery is so much more than some mechanical and electrical parts combined. In our areas of expertise we are known for our high end automatic production lines. The software that enabled these production lines makes us stand up from the crowd. Therefore we strive every day for newer, better and faster software solutions.

One of our objectives is to make sure that operators can do their work in the most efficient way possible. Due to our software solutions, their manual activities can be put to a minimum. At Voortman Steel Machinery we do this with a team of 20 Software Engineers, which all work on a bachelor/master level.

You will be part of the team who is responsible for the .NET software that works on our machine. This software contains all automation logic of the standalone machine, but also the entire production line. This software is also being used for manual activities by the operator. One week you will try to improve the user interface, the next week you will work on simplifying the buffer- and transport management between the systems. The software that you will develop, is working with other software and communicates with our PLC-software, which facilitates control of the machine itself.
