AGFA is looking for experienced profile, who can strengthen our team as a passionate IT-engineer focussing on MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems). As an MES software engineer you will work towards the further automation and optimisation of the complex chemical production processes within AGFA. Your role is to be an end-to-end project lead responsible for the software applications that are developed for operating AGFA’s manufacturing plants. Together with our internal clients you translate technical and functional requirements to software designs to be implemented within time and budget.

  • Delivery & deployment of new software implementation after coordinating its validation & testing with our key-users in the various production departments. You will be working with modern deployment-techniques and technologies (Git, Docker, services…).


  • Troubleshooting of novel and existing MES applications under your care, according to the agreements made with our internal clients. This includes providing support for legacy software (e.g. DELPHI) which we will re-evaluate and refactor systematically where appropriate in the context of our strategy and running project portfolio.
