Software Engineer

Also known as: the king of the code

What does your day look like?

Do you like variety? That's good. As a Software Engineer at Lan you know one thing for sure: no week is the same.


While grabbing your first cup of coffee on Monday morning, you will hear from a colleague that we can get started for a complete pouch handling system for a customer in America. After consultation with your software colleagues about the planning, it becomes clear that you can write the software for the machine control, control panels and robot controls.

Because you are also involved in the testing phase of a machine line that goes to Spain in two weeks, you first put on your safety shoes to fully test the robot once more in the production hall for the acceptance test tomorrow. You discuss the final points with the project team, which -next to you- also consists of mechanical and electrical engineers, mechanics and a project manager.

In the afternoon you have a moment behind your desk. You make the latest changes to the software based on your findings during the test. Then you join a brainstorming session about a new servo control. Before you go home, you check whether your airline tickets and hotel have already been booked for the installation. As a Software Engineer you also take care of commissioning and purchasing the complete line on location at the customer. Vamos!

How you get things moving:


study Industrial Automation, Electrical Engineering or Mechatronics.

Knowlegde of

one or more PLC-systems, like Allen Bradley of Siemens.

A pioneer

who wants to work abroad several times a year for a few weeks.

You are

a go-getter and you like to take responsibility.

We offer

A completely new supermarket experience. Huh, what ?! Really.


Once you come to work at Lan Handling, you can never go shopping normally again. From that moment you turn cans, pots and meal bags everywhere. Just before the check: yes, we also trade this product with our machines! But, of course, that’s not all.
