Then join our Automation team as our new Production IT and database Supporter.

About the Department

You will join the BioPharm API FVII plant. In the API FVII Automation team, we service the automation system that primarily consist of Syncade MES system and DeltaV PCS system. Anchor.

In the Automation Operation team, you will get 10 skilled and highly committed colleagues. We all share a dedication to achieve ambitious goals, and we have the track record to do it with confidence.

The Job

Primarily responsible for support to our Syncade MES system.

Right now, we are in the process of changing from project to production. We expect certain challenges, and you will be part of meeting these in a timely fashion. As our new IT supporter, you will be assisting with implementing code changes, conducting some of the required tests and producing qualification documentation. You will be working in close cooperation with the colleagues from across the production.

When necessary, you will be applying your skills in systematic problem solving, assisting in the daily support of the production lines. If there is a variation in a process, you will be part of the team identifying the root cause and initiating corrective and preventive measures as quickly as possible. As we produce 24/7, your experience may be needed around the clock, and once you are appropriately familiar with our setup, you will be part of the on-call duty rotation.

From time to time, certain maintenance tasks will come your way, allowing you to familiarise yourself with the complexity of automated FVII manufacturing and take part in the everyday upkeeping of a stabile production. As we work in a highly regulated business, where any quality deviation can be potentially dangerous for patients, we also spend quite some time making sure that everything we do is documented in compliance with quality and legislative standards, to ensure complete control with every part of a complex production chain.

You will be handling many stakeholder requests and be expected to quickly build a broad knowledge of our setup, allowing you to navigate the interconnectedness of systems, processes and equipment, when variations arise or impacts of improvements need to be assessed.

You have solid experience with MES systems like Syncade, and a technical curiosity that allows you to understand the details of a complex, extensive production setup.

You have experience with how SQL database is designed and understand Microsoft standard components as SQL, IIS, Web services, OPC, XML, stored procedures.

You have probably built your experience from a technical or an academic education within engineering or IT development. Perhaps you are a recent graduate with a strong curiosity for production processes and equipment, and with the desire and ability to handle a steep learning curve. Or you could be more experienced with operation, maintenance and changes of IT systems - and if you know your way around MES/Syncade, already, it will definitely be a plus. If you can also demonstrate knowledge and knowhow about S88 and S95, it will help you succeed more quickly.

You have some experience and understanding of how a virtual IT system is built and run in daily operations.

Regardless of your background, it is a precondition that you have a strong desire to achieve process knowledge and provide the best solutions in close cooperation with our production. As documentation according to Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) rules is a big part of the daily work, it is important that you thrive in ensuring that all of your work is well documented. Since we use LEAN to management and problem-solving, experience with LEAN tools in a GMP environment will be an advantage, softening the learning curve somewhat.

You are confident that your fact-based solutions are solid, and always have the argument to back it – making it easy for you to energise your surroundings to help you take your solutions from idea to implementation. You are positive, outgoing and you manage to create overview, simplify and explain complex technical contexts to colleagues with different backgrounds than your own – from operators, skilled workers and specialists with heavy hands-on experience, to quality assurance, inspectors and management, with different approaches and levels of technical insight. You look forward to be a proactive and positive part of a great team and invest your skills in ensuring a stabile delivery of a life-changing product.

Freedom with responsibility is a key value to us. As part of that, we expect strong engagement, constructive collaboration, knowledge sharing, and that you are flexible and ready to make an extra effort when needed. In return, we promise you a safe and rewarding work environment where you can develop your skills and build experience in a market-leading facility - here your knowledge and your effort is appreciated and you can be sure to make a difference.
