Job Description

Siemens is a diverse global engineering powerhouse giant that combines manufacturing trains and MRI scanners with being the world’s largest industrial software company. 

The next industrial revolution will be driven by digitization – making data available and accessible in new ways (the Internet of Things or IoT) and integrating it from design through manufacture to use and end of life.  Siemens solution to drive this change is MindSphere, a cloud based ‘IoT operating system’ launched in 2016. New functionality coming online mid-2017 is an open Application Programming Interface (API) that can allow third parties to develop applications that can be sold to MindSphere users to add value to their data.

This role will support a radical new Siemens unit that will be based at the University of Sheffield and will support the development of new applications for MindSphere in collaboration with academics, students, Siemens business units and their customers, partners and suppliers.  In partnership, Siemens and the University of Sheffield will also explore the potential for involving the use of MindSphere and Siemens other digital tools across university activity.

What you will do

The jobholder will have two roles:-

  1. MindSphere Applications engineer

  2. MindSphere Innovation Network programme management

What are my responsibilities?

  • Identification, scoping and implementation of projects developing new MindSphere Applications. Depending on the strengths of the candidate this will vary the technical (algorithm and software development, implementation) and non-technical content (project management, customer engagement and support)

A close working relationship will also be essential with a range of University stakeholders.

  • Use project management best practices to support development of new applications and delivery of the engagement programme.

Candidate Requirements:-

This will be a demanding role that requires engineers and computer scientists to show the hybrid skills needed in the future: the ability to be technically competent and able to engage with finance and non-technical stakeholders. As this is a new unit the candidate will need to be comfortable with a fast paced and challenging environment and exposure to senior stakeholders across a range of industries (e.g. factory automation, building technologies, wind power, power)

  • You must be studying towards a computer science, mathematics or engineering degree, aiming for a 2:2 or above

  • Proficiency in one software language (Java, Ruby or Cloud Foundry an advantage)

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
