Inductive Automation Careers

Software Support Engineer

Job Description

Chances are you’ve never heard of Inductive Automation before today–and that’s okay! But here’s the funny thing: you’re more than likely surrounded by items that our software played an integral role in producing. We’re one of the fastest-growing industrial automation software companies in the world. It’s our mission to create software that swiftly removes obstacles so that our customers can turn their insanely-awesome ideas into reality.

Being a Software Support Engineer at Inductive Automation is like no other support position. You’ll be an active member of our Technical Staff and working with the product development team.

The ideal candidate is someone energized by the possibilities offered by programming but also relishes in social interactions. This is a strategic, challenging and fulfilling position that doesn’t require you to stare at code for hours on end.
