Hudiksvall, SE

Software Feature Engineer

As pioneers and global leader, Hiab is ambitious to write forward our success story, inspiring and shaping our industry. The world in which we operate with our class-leading products, intelligent services and innovative digital solutions is constantly changing.


We are now expanding the Control Systems department and are looking for engineers that like to combine theory with practical experience. You have access to state of the art development platform and tools complimented with a test facility where you can try your ideas in a realistic environment. 

Our control system consists of hydraulics, electronics and software algorithms, and it is essential to tune these together with the mechanical system to create good dynamic behavior for the complex loader crane system. We are looking for a skilled Control Systems Engineer and offer a challenging position in our diversified team of highly qualified engineers.


In the team we work extensively with modeling and simulation to develop our system, your task is mainly to develop our control system functionality in order to maintain our market leading position when it comes to safety and technical advancement. You will develop new crane features from requirements to implementation on a crane via our Hardware and Human-in-the-loop simulators. As an example of crane feature we could mention Crane Tip Control, CTC, that makes it easier to drive the crane. In CTC you control the tip of the crane rather than the individual crane actuators. Please visit our Youtube Channel for more examples. 

Knowledge and experiences we are looking for:


  • Master of Science in Mechanics/Electronics with control theory as specialization and experience from modelling and simulation (Matlab/Simulink). 
  • Experience in Embedded systems development
  • At least two years of experience in Function Development
  • You are a team player, cooperating and sharing your knowledge with colleagues 
  • You are like the mix between theory and practical tests on the crane.
  • You are a self-sufficient problem solver with the ability to promote your ideas
  • Nice to have:
    • Experience in software testing (unit, MIL, SIL, HIL)
    • Experience in in C, C++
    • Github
