Improve a process with industry-wide impact

We are looking for an experienced automation engineer to work on our operation pipeline. In this role, you will solve novel automation problems and introduce impactful process innovations. Your voice will influence the future of the company and the state of an industry.

Your responsibilities

  • Build software to enable remote machine control.

  • Debug and optimize automated processes to minimize human intervention and maximize yield.

  • Implement new technologies at production facilities.

  • Lead the implementation of manufacturing execution controls (e.g. ERP/MES/SCADA).

  • Be the thought leader of your domain in the company.

Working at Rodinia

  • We are a small company that will grow. You should want to advance your responsibilities over time and take on leadership.

  • You will initially be working with a senior operations expert, a junior developer, and a senior data scientist. However, we are currently also hiring for frontend and automation engineering positions.

  • Work is very pragmatic here. Our combined efforts go into building a strong operation. The stakeholders for your software are next to you, in the office.

  • We are currently in a very R&D-focused development phase. Our manufacturing site is located inside our office space and we run a very tight loop between idea and execution.

  • We are a small, mixed bunch. Designers, engineers and more.

  • We value innovation. There is room for mistake.

Work at a company with a goal that matters

Clothing production in the fashion industry accounts for nearly 8% of global CO2 emissions. More than 35% of all garments are produced in China and around one third are discarded before they even reach a warehouse. The current industry causes unmeasurable human and environmental damage.

Our goal at Rodinia Generation is to change the industry of clothing production. Within this decade, we are going to make local and automated production of clothing the cheapest and most reliable manufactoring option for mid-to-high-end fashion brands. The manufactoring process we have developed uses no water, produces no chemical waste and beats all current manufactoring alternatives on speed and environmental footprint. We are building the worlds first competitive alternative to the industrial status-quo of the fashion industry.

Your qualifications


  • Proof of competence (degree/certifications/experience/projects).

  • Minimum two years of professional experience within electromechanical- or mechatronic engineering, or other relevant field.

  • Proficiency in programming industrial equipment (e.g. PLCs, VFDs, HMI, local network communication).

  • A love of tinkering with machines, and strong attention to detail.


  • Experience with Linux, networking, storage and security.

  • Programming proficiency in C++, Python, and JavaScript.

  • Experience working in a team with structured planning and communications.

  • Leadership experience.

Additional information about the job

  • You will be starting many new projects, so we do not demand you use any specific technologies. In fact, we expect that you will own such decisions. However, we do obviously prefer popular technologies, frameworks, methodologies, etc. that are easier to hire new engineers into, and to reproduce and scale.

  • We are building an operations platform which lets a human operator plan and submit jobs to a manufacturing facility. A key part of the Automations Engineers function is develop the low-level software components that enables machine control. This interaction between hardware (printers, cameras, sensors, CNC cutters) and cloud architecture may require some special skills and willingness to learn.

    • An understanding of IT and networking will be very useful.

    • While the backend- and frontend engineers will be responsible for all adjacent software that does not directly touch the hardware, a genuine interest in software development that enables smooth cooperation with the developers is important.

  • We are currently in the R&D phase, putting all of our energy into building a solid operation with a single manufacturing site. Our next step is to reproduce and scale.
