C++ Software Engineer – Industry 4.0-enabled MES

Location: Wommelgem, Antwerp; Drongen, Ghent; Wavre (Belgium)

Your Challenge

As a Software Engineer at OMP, you’ll be part of a fast-growing, international software development team. You’ll work according to the scrum methodology in a tight-knit group of 3-4 team players. We believe in an integrated approach, where every team member is involved in all steps of the software development life cycle: analysis, architecture design, programming and debugging.

You’ll be part of the team that makes a sector-specific, market-leading planning solution for the Paper, Plastic Film and Packaging industries.  In particular, you will work on the Industry 4.0-enabled Manufacturing Execution System (MES). Our state-of-the-art planning application needs real-time data about the execution of the production plan on the shop floor. The MES application automatically collects feedback from machine sensors through diverse vendor specific protocols. Working on this application gives you the opportunity to cooperate closely with project teams to translate customer requests into our standard solution.

You’ll develop a standard application in C++, using the newest features and development techniques. Our team of experienced Functional Product Managers will work with you to discuss and validate the functional requirements throughout the development cycle. Customization of the application will be done by our team of consultants.

Your daily work as a Software Engineer includes:

  • Analytical thinking to translate requirements into technical software design.
  • Writing code that conforms to high quality standards.
  • Reviewing the code written by other members of your team.
  • Working closely with the scrum testers to give input about useful scenarios and to help debug where necessary.
  • Maintaining and supporting your developments according to user feedback.

Your Profile

It’s essential that you have:

  • A Bachelor or a Master in ICT, Engineering, Electronics or another relevant field.
  • Good knowledge of object-oriented programming.
  • Pride in the high-quality software that you write.
  • A hands-on, cooperative, pragmatic and passionate attitude.
  • Fluency in English.
  • An affinity for data collection using different automated systems.

It’d be great if you also had:

  • C++ expertise – if not, you’re willing to learn modern style C++.
  • Knowledge of PLC programming languages.
  • Knowledge of communication protocols and interfaces (RS485, TCP/IP, Ethernet, ProfiBus, … )
  • Experience with design patterns, UML, algorithmic thinking, multi-threading and distributed systems.
