  • Scripting file transfer from laboratory equipment to file server, including document parsing where needed.
  • Configuring lab workstations (W7, W10)
  • Determining and requesting firewall rules (port, protocol) that are required to allow communication of the lab equipment with the iLab integration gateway
  • Providing detailed documentation for both the Moxa convertor settings, file transfer specifics, as well as the actual implementation of the interfacing for each laboratory instrument.
  • Collaborating and communicate with corporate colleagues, as well as frequent contacts and meetings with site MSAT SME's.


  • Microsoft operating systems knowledge (XP, W7, W10 and server 2008, 2012, 2016)
  • Networking essentials, TCP/IP, VLAN concept, firewall, remote administration, Active Directory use
  • Scripting knowledge (DOS command line, vbscript, Powershell,…)
  • Knowledge of lab instrumentation, such as balances, pH meters, HPLCs, etc…, more specifically experience with network connectivity of these instruments.
  • Knowledge of serial-to-IP convertors (Moxa, Lantronix, …) and knowledge of and experience with peripheral equipment in general.
  • Documentation skills: being able to write detailed specifications.
  • Flexible, service-oriented, good communication skills in English and Dutch.
  • Be able to work independently, and well organized.
  • Having worked previously in or for a pharmaceutical company within a lab area is a plus.
  • Prior experience with GMP, GAMP5 and CFR21Part11 are a plus.
