job description

We are currently recruiting an exciting opportunity for a control systems engineer for a global mineral exploration company. This role will support the development and integration of controls systems for drilling machinery. As a member of the Engineering team based in Adelaide, you will have a significant part to play in the application of control system technologies to their drilling rigs and associated equipment. This role will commence as a permanent opportunity for the right person.

Roles and responsibilities

  • Electrical and software design, implementation and configuration of drilling machine control systems within a multi-disciplinary project team
  • Development and integration of safety related methodologies in electrical design and software design
  • Maintain knowledge of new and emerging technologies for integration into the client’s control systems
  • Be able to work independently while being receptive to input from peer engineers
  • Site travel from time to time to trouble shoot, develop and/or implement control system updates to operating equipment out in the field


  • Exposure to control system hardware and software development in an industrial or mobile environment (mining, manufacturing or factory automation)
  • An understanding of relevant machine design standards (ISO13849, AS4024, ASNZ3000)
  • A basic understanding of hydraulic systems and equipment
  • Experience with iFM hardware and control system application development (ABB/Siemens/Codesys/Rockwell etc)

The successful candidate will have relevant tertiary qualifications (Mechatronics, Electrical, Electronic, and Instrumentation & Control) with strong experience in designing, developing and implementing control systems. Codesys application development experience is highly desirable, however, it is expected that a suitably experienced candidate will have the ability to leverage their existing skill set, and with training, quickly attain the necessary proficiency. You will have excellent written and verbal communication skills and be able to organize your own tasks as required.
