Senior Project Application Engineer


In 2017 Schneider Electric was ranked in the Top 10 places to work in Australia. A flexible work environment enables you to take control of how you get your work done. Global specialists in energy management and automation. Our technologies ensure that Life Is On everywhere, for everyone at every moment

Are you looking for an exciting role where you will be recognised as an expert on EcoStruxure Foxboro DCS and lead the project engagement with new and existing clients to improve their operational efficiency? Are you keen to design and implement Control System projects using the leading edge of Visualisation technology?

Our Process Automation business delivers Industrial Automation Solutions, combining Apps, Analytics and Services, Edge Control and Connected products to provide industrial customers the most complete Automation offer on the market. Our solutions enable end-user customers in various segments such as WWW, MMM, O&G, Power and F&B to make the most of their energy, ensuring reliability, efficiency and safety of their Automation systems. To achieve this, we design solutions that empower the client workforce, provide early return on investment and include value focused IIOT elements to bring essential data to all levels of the organisation.

Based in Brisbane we have an exciting opportunity to join our Process Automation business. Key aim is to provide technical and team leadership for projects and services encompassing all aspects from engineering and design right through to maintenance and support. Projects will be conducted in a manner that provides exceptional levels of customer satisfaction, enhancing our already strong reputation as a solution provider whilst adhering to all contract, quality OHS, cost and scheduling requirements. Whilst we do not want to narrow the field, we believe instrumental to success in this role will be the following.

  • Tertiary engineering or technology qualification with eligibility to membership of Engineers Australia
  • A track record of leading the delivery of industrial automation, specifically those incorporating Foxboro DCS
  • Demonstrable capabilities in HMI, specifically Abnormal Situation Management concepts 
  • Extensive customer and/or site experience from early design through to commissioning support
  • High level of competency in the interpretation of process descriptions and ability to develop technical FDS and system designs
  • High level of personal organisation skills, complemented by excellent communication, interpersonal customer and stakeholder management skills

That’s the technical stuff, but equally critical is your energy, curiosity, customer focus and ability to collaborate extensively, remaining a selfless and committed team player.

At Schneider Electric your career will be meaningful, inclusive and you will be empowered. We expect that our employees put customers first, embrace different and act like owners. Our leaders are tasked with shaping our future, building the best teams and to use their judgement to deliver results. We’re a great place to work but we are continually striving to be the best place to work, join us and see how!
