Come join a team that is not like other Engineering departments. This team has personality! They strive to make products that wow the customers and they do! Wonderful atmosphere where you can be you and add your expertise while gaining insight from others.

This role supports a growing brand that is gaining momentum in the industry and on the edge of a huge growth spurt. You will exercise many projects needing someone that can handle stress and multitasking. Holding yourself to a higher standard. Interfacing with many differing personality types and maintaining positive working relationships. Taking the professional "high road" when dealing with those personalities and problem solve issues that deviate from established process for success. Self-starter, big picture thinker that connect the dots from the short term tasks into the future vision. The ability to communicate things of a technical nature to all departments and gain their understanding.

You are the link between what the customer needs and engineering.

Unique problem solving to meet customer needs. A different way of attacking a problem and coming up with a solution that works for the customer that we can fabricate. In many cases, we will need you to go on site visits to those customers to create a partnership. You'll view their operations and gain intel on how they will use our products. As you have a keen eye for opportunity, you'll bring back other products we can create to solve other needs. Needing an organized project manager mentality, a designer sales person that can foster win-win solutions and manager their own workload.

As an Engineer with our modified product line, you are taking our current products and making them into what our customers have asked for. While other companies shy away from this type of service, we are proud to THE resource for people that want products designed for their needs. You'll manipulate current designs, lay them out in Solid Works and work with the fabrication team to help them build the product. You'll create sales drawings that convey your design intent.
