Take your next career step at ABB with a global team that is energizing the transformation of society and industry to achieve a more productive, sustainable future.

At ABB, we have the clear goal of driving diversity and inclusion across all dimensions: gender, LGBTQ+, abilities, ethnicity and generations. Together, we are embarking on a journey where each and every one of us, individually and collectively, welcomes and celebrates individual differences.

We are looking for a new addition to our Robotics Division to expand our existing team as an Application Engineer.

Your task will be to implement robotic workplace projects in various industries. Our customers are in all sectors but predominantly Automotive Tier 1.

Our projects are from installation to handover and are mainly abroad, in countries like Spain, France, Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Russia or Israel and occasionally the Czech Republic. You can spend up to 6 months a year on... these projects in total, so it's more for someone who enjoys travelling and wants to see the world.

This position is suitable for experienced PLC programmers or application engineers, as well as electrical graduates who are interested in robotics and like to travel. Once you start, you don't work on projects alone, but always with more experienced colleagues to get a good grounding.
