Work description 

Do you have an appetite for innovation and development? Does power and automation make your heart skip a beat? Do you see yourself making a career with a world leading supplier in high voltage cable?

Then you’re the one we’re looking for!

As Automation Engineer at NKT you’ll be a part of the Production Technology Automation team; well experienced in projects concerning power and automation development. You will be part of, and also take lead in, projects mainly focused on automation development.

We aim to be in the forefront of technology! We have developed unique automation systems used in our cable management.

You will also be an important support to Production.

Working at NKT 

NKT is a global company, world leading in high voltage cables. Head office is located in Broendeby, Denmark. NKT has approximately 3500 employees, 14 production sites in Europe and sales offices all over the world. NKT is owned by NKT A/S, listed on Nasdaq Copenhagen.

Our employees are the key to success 
The work culture at NKT bases itself on high ambition, strong performance and great commitment. We have a clear goal in our strategy, to be a workplace where the most qualified workers in the industry choose to make a career. To support these strategic goals, NKT offer their workers an environment with continuous opportunities for personal development.  

Who are you?

You are an engineer skilled in one of either two orientations:
* Automation development: a highly motivated and creative mind skilled in PLC. 
* Electrical engineering: a solution oriented and innovative person who brings both ideas and structure to the table. Being accredited in electrical work is advantageous. Electrical Safety is a requirement.

Fluency in English and Swedish is a must for this role, as communication is key. Knowing an additional language (German, preferably) is considered a bonus.

To succeed and thrive in this role, you need to be thorough and appreciate getting to take responsibility for your own work. You see yourself as a natural multitasker, being able to keep multiple projects ongoing parallel to each other and still deliver both quality and results. You’ll work closely with your team and coworkers and that is where you do your best work. Sharing ideas, working together and contributing to the technology journey – that’s where you want to be.
