General merchandise, fashion and food retail companies need to be flexible in handling the levels of orders, fulfil online orders and store deliveries, and cope with a lack of available workforce. Those companies continuously improve their supply chains and invest in innovative technologies. At Vanderlande we understand the complexities associated with operating a successful warehouse operation and deliver future proof logistic process automation.
The System Integration department is part of the business unit Warehousing Solutions within Vanderlande Industries. We are responsible for the solution design, testing, and integration of complex Warehousing systems worldwide for customers such as Albert Heijn, Nike, Lego and Walmart. To integrate all components (mechanical, electronic, OT software, IT software and IT Hardware) into a working system and according to the specifications, is quite challenging, especially for large and complex warehouses. As such, this is the focus area of the System Integration Management team.
Our automation systems are composed of many (electro-)mechanical and IT components, built by teams in various parts of the world and must be integrated with other (software) systems to support the processes of our customers.
As Junior Integration Engineer, you are involved in integrating the various components and subsystems of these systems. You are also involved in the integration with the customer's IT systems and processes.
You test the system to ensure that it accomplishes what it is supposed to. Frequent testing involves attempts to intentionally break the system to identify any problem areas, based on an analysis of technical risks. Test- and integration engineers contribute to the success of projects through their superior knowledge of the system as a whole, its operational objectives, how all its parts work together, and all the technical factors that go into its development.
Your tasks and responsibilities
- Make test designs and test plans based on system design, risk analysis and customer demands;
- Implement test cases and scripts, prepare the test execution and build and configure the test environment;
- Set up test environments and the test-tooling;
- Execute the integration-, system- and customer acceptance tests;
- Analyze and report the test results, (production) problems and verify solutions;
- Discuss results with developers, solution architects / clients or other team members.
As Junior Integration Engineer you report to the Integration Manager.
You are an analytical problem solver who thinks in a systems perspective. You are able to manage small details while keeping an eye on the bigger picture. You like to work together in a multi-disciplinary team of engineers.
- You have a Bachelor or Master degree
- Relevant working experience in testing and integration is preferred but not a must
- Affinity with IT and Industrial Automation
- Interested in logistic processes
- Basic knowledge of Systems Engineering and / or Software development
- Basic knowledge of testing methodologies and techniques
