“The software I develop gives patients more attention and better care. Patients are helped faster and fewer medication errors are made.”

In software development with RoboPharma in Waalwijk, The Netherlands, you work in project teams on improvements to applications for our automation. Your efforts help streamline logistics processes. As a result, for example, pharmacists spend less time collecting the correct prescriptions and more time attending to patients.


As a software engineer, you sometimes commit to a project for a new customer where the software still has to be linked to the new automation. Other times you work on improving and developing software components in installations in operation at existing customers. You process a high amount of data that needs to be properly processed in systems and outdated codes that need to be improved. You consult within the team, but you also work independently. You are involved in implementation as well as testing and documentation, in maintenance and development. You receive freedom to develop strong software and to keep learning yourself. Management listens to your own preferences for work. Together with the team, you ensure a good completion of the project.
