System Engineer

St Gallen Area, Switzerland

At the dawn of Industry 4.0 and the age of digitization, Turck Vilant Systems is at the very heart of data needed to drive companies to the next level. Our customers streamline their processes, redefine their operations, find new business and reduce waste with the help of the data collected by us.

We are now looking to reinforce our technical team in Switzerland and we would like to welcome you as our System Engineer to implement RFID projects for our retail and industrial customers.


What to expect from this position?

You are a key resource in the implementation of the RFID solutions, including both software and hardware components, and you will specify, test, commission and support our customer systems.

Your closest colleagues will be Kai, the Project Manager and Hanspeter from Sales, furthermore you will work in close co-operation with our Engineering and Support team in Germany as well as our agile software development team in Finland.

You will be based partly at our customer location and partly at your home office. A typical work week will consist of

  • Technical support for existing customers
  • Preparing hardware and software for customer installations
  • Testing and taking new features into use at the customer site
  • Managing smaller projects or part projects on your own


What do we offer?

Dynamic and informal environment. Helpful colleagues. Flexibility. If we wish to climb a mountain, we do it together and one step at a time.

We offer you a key role in supporting various solutions that enhance our customers’ physical business processes. With us you will work in a truly international environment, some of your customers use our systems outside of Switzerland and so you will be able to travel with the customer – sometimes even worldwide.

Implementing RFID solutions will give you an outlook to how industrial companies employ digitization in their everyday.


What do we expect from you?

You understand IT-Systems and you are comfortable in working independently as well as an able learner. You listen, you ask questions and you don’t give up.

Come as you are

You don’t have to be an expert in RFID – we will teach you. As long as you are comfortable in working with software and hardware, we think you will fit our team well.
