Working student (m/f/d) for Azure Cloud at industrial automation start-up @ Gate Garching

Location: Garching near Munich


Software Defined Automation creates completely new degrees of freedom beyond proprietary industrial automation systems for the automated configuration, operation, maintenance and continuous change of production plants to bring the vision of “Dark Factories” to life – a future in which factories run fully autonomously – and you can turn off the lights in the factory for good! We close the communication gap between IT and operational technology and are the enabler for AI based self-optimizing production plants, thereby reaching the next technological innovation step function in productivity for the world.

For this new world of Software Defined Automation, we build a team that masters both Cloud / AI as well as real-time shop floor operations. Join our team with your technical depth, interest in industrial manufacturing and hands-on implementation experience with globally scaling SaaS Applications. We look forward to your interest in pushing the boundaries all the way from the cloud to the moving things on the shop floor. We write to the factory!
