Siemens is in search of a Senior Engineer experienced in creating Adjustable Speed Drive solutions for the Commercial and Navy marine industry.
The engineer who takes this position will create, implement, and commission solutions using Siemens power, drives, motors, and industry technology portfolio to satisfy industrial customer requirements. Our integrated solutions combine PLC control with industrial power and drive systems to provide higher level control and coordination.
