Controls and Automation Engineer 28 views

Millville, NJ

Hello potential future Oatly employee. It’s us, the original oatmilk company that started in Sweden back 25 or so years ago and has since expanded to the U.S. where we’ve continued growing at a rate such that we need more brilliant minds to come work with us to keep the momentum going and the oatmilk flowing.
Joining our team here and now is especially exciting as our plant in Millville is the first production facility Oatly has built in the United States. Totally oatsome, right?
Sustainability, health, and transparency are the core values that guide everything we do. Basically, we exist to make it easy for people to eat better and live healthier lives without recklessly taxing the planet’s resources in the process. If any of this resonates with you, then maybe you’d like work for Oatly, too. Now onto the formal stuff.
We are looking for a Controls and Automation Engineer to join our team.  This role will be responsible for providing technical leadership for our sites in support of electrical and controls. This role serves to improve the safety, reliability and productivity of our manufacturing processes through tactical support and project execution. You will drive production process improvements, assist with introduction of new products and support/lead capital improvement projects as necessary.

Here are the things we want to hire you to do:

  • Assist with completion and startup of our new production facility
  • Drive productivity through a strategic use of technology from feasibility to completion
  • Provide tactical and strategic operations support to reduce/eliminate issues associated with equipment, performance, quality and safety
  • Manage electrical and controls architecture

  • Manage relationships with collaborators; plant cross-functional teams, contractors, integrators and corporate engineering resources
  • Maintain the plant electrical safety program
  • Develop electrical and controls facility master plan, support development of the capital plan and manage obsolescence in each area of the plant
  • Provide technical support to the Operations, Quality and Maintenance functions with the aim of reducing manufacturing defects
  • Respond to manufacturing issues as they occur
  • Work cross-functionally with R&D, Quality, HR, maintenance, Finance, Sales, Marketing and other departments as required
  • Here are the things we think you need:

  • Bachelor’s degree in engineering from ABET-accredited program preferably in electrical or controls engineering
  • 5+ years of related experience in process automation
  • Experience with Rockwell/Allen Bradley
  • SQL and Network Architecture preferred
  • Hardware application, programming and integration experience
  • Ability to interpret and apply the NEC, NFPA 70E, Corporate and other standards to the plant equipment and projects
  • Experience leading and managing 3rd party electrical contractors and controls integrators
  • Experience with process/packaging control, equipment specifications and panel design
  • Ability to troubleshoot PLC’s at the code level and troubleshoot equipment and wiring
  • Understanding of and experience with power distribution equipment
  • Strong project management skills, including estimating, scheduling, quote request generation, bid analyses, cost tracking and compliance, project issue resolution, installation and start-up support and training
  • Strong communication and presentation skills applied to multiple organizational levels: production floor, internal managers and senior management
  • Ability to handle and prioritize multiple projects
  • Good problem solving and troubleshooting skills
  • Ability to travel up to 25% of the time
  • And here’s another list of qualities we think make a good Oatly team member:

  • You feel connected to our mission of encouraging health, sustainability, and transparency
  • You are a self-starter who doesn’t need direct supervision to motivate you for success – we believe strongly in building a culture of individual accountability and ownership and need partners that can embrace that mentality
  • You are ready to make your mark in a smaller, growing brand leveraging your experience to deliver amazing results and build an outstanding company
  • You have entrepreneurial spirit in that you’re comfortable with ambiguity and are energized by the process of building something lasting from the ground up
  • You enjoy sharing your quirkiness and talents with your coworkers
  • Another bulleted list felt redundant, so we wrote this long sentence with all the ways we sweeten the deal to work with us, like providing flexible vacation for starters, really great benefits with 100% medical coverage, genuinely great coworkers who want to see the company and each other succeed, a start-up vibe with an established company history, and an employee discount to stock your fridge full of the best non-dairy alternative in the world.
