Trace Automation is a team of experts who thirst for knowledge and growth. We are client-focused and deliver high-quality service that is second to none.

We hire engineers from diverse disciplines—mechanical, electrical, chemical, and software—who are interested in controls. Many of our full-time and contractor positions are travel jobs with competitive rates, overtime pay, per diem, and more. So, if you’re looking for a team that welcomes challenges and is geeky for controls, you’re in the right place!

What We Do

We do all types of automation, from simple manufacturing cells all the way up to large chemical, oil, and gas processes, from the PLC to the MES. We serve the oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, water utility, and manufacturing industries.

Some work is remote, but most work requires travel (domestic and international) for short- and long-term onsite support.
