Choose Your Own Path to Success with the Technical Pathways Program

Since our inception, there has been one thing that sets Inductive Automation apart from the rest of the automation industry: the people who work here. Our products are developed using open source technology and we offer free training along with mountains of free resources, but it’s our employees’ ingenuity and sense of community that are one of a kind. So more than anything, our goal is to make room for everyone on the IA team to grow and flourish, to find their strengths and fully realize their talents. With that mindset, we created the Technical Pathways Program to help current students and recent graduates develop their skills and better prepare for wherever their careers may take them. 

Each pathway offers unique experiences and benefits, along with plenty of transferable skills if you ever want to pivot within the company. Below is a brief overview of each pathway.

  • Software Support: Help expert engineers and industry professionals solve advanced technical problems, working directly with our development team to assist with everything from deployment to enterprise-level connectivity. Due to the variety of challenges you’ll face, there’s never a script, only critical thinking and teamwork.
  • Software Development: Be part of the team that develops Ignition from start to finish. You’ll be pitching in right away (because good ideas come from everyone), collaborating across various divisions and, because Ignition is a polyglot platform, coding in a variety of languages.
  • Quality Assurance: Validate code changes and perform automated and/or manual tests, but more than that, you’ll define processes for our entire organization. You’ll also provide a voice for the customer, acting as a liaison for their needs and understanding exactly how our software can help.
  • Training: Some people are born to teach. Combine your product knowledge with other skills, drafting and updating written documentation or producing and editing video. Or if you’re the type who enjoys teaching directly, become an in-class instructor and travel to production facilities all over the world.
  • Sales Engineering: Work on dynamic, fascinating projects in all types of industries, helping current and potential customers understand the full capabilities of Ignition. You won’t be fixing small problems, you’ll be connecting the dots of automation to reveal approaches that can overcome system-wide challenges.
  • Sales: This is not your typical sales role! Working collaboratively alongside other divisions, use your technical knowledge to answer any questions for potential customers. Additionally, you’ll demonstrate the power of Ignition with live installs and system development.

We're also a remote-first company

“[Remote work] means that the technology continues to enhance our collaborative capability while helping to ensure that the remote workers are still integrated and don't feel left out. Technology is an enabler.” -Kevin in Software Engineering.

“I feel like the infrastructure is in place so that working remotely is seamless. I have access to all the resources I need to do my job effectively and without any real wait time. If I need to clarify something with a co-worker, Slack is right there. And when the problem is a bit more complicated, we can switch to screen-sharing just as easily. [I've been] eating healthier, upgrading my cooking skills… it's a lot easier when the kitchen is a room away.” -Alex, Quality Assurance

“It shows management’s trust. It shows employees’ responsibility.” -Trevor, Accounts Receivable 

"I currently live in Oregon and without IA’s willingness to hire remotely, I wouldn’t be working here today and you wouldn’t be reading these words right now. As the past year has shown so definitively, massive change can come at any moment. Knowing that IA is willing to be flexible, whether I decide to stay in Oregon or move somewhere else, affords a level of security I can’t quantify." -Aaron, Marketing

Inductive Automation Tech Stack

"Working at Inductive Automation has broadened my technical horizons, providing me a hands-on opportunity to learn about all kinds of new technologies, as well as develop practical troubleshooting techniques I'm still using years later." - Paul Scott, Training Content Manager
