    • Industry-leading technology
    • Join an innovative team delivering real-time applications.

    The Role

    This position offers the applicant the opportunity to participate in real-time IOT applications for the mining, industrial production, and infrastructure markets.  As a Data Engineer, you will work with customers, suppliers, and our technical staff to identify requirements, select technology and deliver solutions for integrated data applications.

    As a Senior Data Engineer, you will lead these applications and outcomes.

    The core element in our market is the need to combine both real-time and historical data with associated asset data and media to supply information for the personnel engaged in the actual process being monitored. We consolidate information from other systems including IT however mostly present information to the OT layer.
    These needs place a different emphasis on data gathering, access, and visualisation, and the successful applicant must have worked with data from these types of sources before.

    The company promotes flexibility in hours and WFH is an integral part of the work routine.  The person will however need to be available to regularly attend our Illawarra-based office.  The applicant should assume 60% of the time will be required in the physical office environment or on-site with customers. Out-of-area travel will be required for presentations, meetings, and commissioning.


    The Work

    Our customers will seek to retrieve information from the production network, both in raw form and based on processed data e.g. calculations and analytics, to support process and business improvements.

    We work with large volumes of low latency data, which in our industry can vary from milliseconds to typically 2 seconds old. The volume of data is already large and growing.

    We visualise the data using not only dashboards and reports but using Virtual Reality, Virtual Environments, and Augmented Reality.

    The key elements involved are:

    • Identifying customer requirements
    • Specifying software and operational functionality
    • Selecting the process and software elements that will be used
    • Defining data and interface needs for the application
    • Delivering the solutions within a distributed team of expertise
    • Providing effective visualisation transforming data into knowledge

    • The role requires proven experience in data acquisition in these process and operational environments.
    • The role requires a clear understanding of the implementation of process historians including data structures and the application of their calculations and analytics. Experience with products such as OSI PI and iba suites of software would fit this criterion.
    • Significant experience in interfacing with other data storage methods. As a minimum practical and significant experience in the use of databases both to store and retrieve information.
    • Experience in the use of reporting products. Grafana is commonly used for reporting, however, this can vary based on the customer’s preference.
    • The skills to produce information in a form that is clearly understood are essential.
