Our Experience

CESI has got decades of experience in consultancy services on infrastructures, applications and automation solutions devoted to electrical networks (T&D), by defining architectures and functional requirements, conceiving supervision, control and automation systems, specifying and developing advanced control room applications as well as operators training platforms.

In this context CESI portfolio includes consulting on innovative technological services (e.g. SCADA, EMS/DMS) and the design and development of T&D OT software solutions based on both engineering models and recent advanced methodologies and features.

All these activities leverage on active continuous participation of CESI personnel to the main standardization committees and international working groups, in addition to continuous learning on technological innovations.

Team and location

As IT/OT Expert, the candidate will be part of CESI team that assists the final clients, typically TSOs and DSOs, in functional specification, design and development of OT software applications, FAT and SAT of all the solution’s components, up to the trial operation of new/refurbished applications and platforms integrated in larger OT infrastructures (e.g. SCADA, EMS/DMS). After a first period of integration and training in CESI Headquarters in Milan, the position may require short periods of time abroad (one week / ten days per mission) for meetings and on-site activities, both in Factory and at Client premises.

Job description

The candidate will be called to contribute in different phases of design and development of applications for CESI Clients, starting from initial assessment and gap analysis of the existing infrastructures, applications and platforms deployed at the TSOs and DSOs premises, passing through conceptual design and detailed functional specification.

In performing this activity, the main focuses will be:

  • Scouting of most suitable IT/OT technologies, platforms, market products, programming languages and hardware solutions to be used in the specific applications;
  • Conceptual IT design of software solutions to be developed for CESI Clients;
  • Coordination and supervision of IT developers across multiple projects to support Project Managers and Product Leaders in resource allocation;
  • Improvement and implementation of CESI standardized approach for OT software applications.

The above activities may be conducted during tendering process and/or project delivery. Delivery may comprise design and development of OT software applications, system integration in Client’s IT/OT infrastructures, including detailed design review, functional specification and participation to FAT and SAT. In this case the candidate will be responsible for the organization surveillance to the installation, management and operation of all the solution’s components, as well as for the coordination, execution, monitoring and evaluation of all testing, with also possible support to trial operation of the developed applications after their integration in Client’s OT systems.
