Join us in this role where you’ll be responsible for configuring control systems on power plants while securing data acquisition. You’ll work with various SCADA domain experts across Europe and Malaysia. We’ll support your personal and professional growth by enhancing your capabilities within SCADA communication, networking protocols and AVEVA System Platform and PI System.


Welcome to Platform, Integration & Data
You’ll be part of a SCADA team where you, together with your colleagues, will support the global organisation’s internal SCADA users.

As a team, we take full ownership, offer flexibility, and value the opportunity of being onsite at our office three days per week to foster team culture.  


You’ll play an important role in:

  • developing and supporting central SCADA systems in a networked infrastructure based on AVEVA Platform solutions
  • planning, upgrading, installing, configuring, supporting, and maintaining central SCADA system servers and their communication interfaces to local site-specific SCADA systems
  • implementation of grid services in the SCADA systems and supporting business applications


To succeed in the role, you:

  • have significant experience with SCADA systems, preferably AVEVA System Platform and/or AVEVA PI System, aka Wonderware and/or OSIsoft
  • have experience in operating and developing enterprise level (supervisory and control) SCADA systems connecting to remote network with physical layer (field) SCADA systems handled by others
  • are experienced with industrial communication protocols, such as OPC DA, XML and UA, IEC 104, and Modbus
  • have experience with MS SQL Server administration, SQL query, and MS Windows Server administration
  • have at least a bachelor’s degree or an equivalent in IT, engineering, or similar, or have acquired experience from previous employment 
  • Speak Danish at B2-level or higher.
