Advanced Automation Engineer (Mixing)



As an Advanced Automation Engineer within our mixing team, you will work closely with the production and design teams to develop, configure, optimize, and troubleshoot production systems and equipment. You will provide technical and engineering expertise for the implementation of process control strategies within the DCS and PLC systems, evaluate and resolve problems with existing process control systems utilizing vendor and/or maintenance support, when necessary, develop and configure changes to the existing process control system based on priority and need, and support day-to-day operations. This ensures that the process control system is effectively implemented to produce high purity battery materials, maximize system throughput, and productivity for safe and environmentally sound operations.
