Job Description

Inductive Automation is looking for an innovator comfy with codebase and who has fun participating in the full software engineering lifecycle to join us as a Software Systems Engineer.

In this role you'll build and manage internal projects including the company's CRM using tools like APIs, databases, Python, and our own Ignition. Some engineers design bridges or build engines, but your superpower is crafting code that makes things work. We like people with a pioneering spirit — maybe you haven't sent astronauts to the Moon (yet), but you totally could.
