  • Help develop new business processes such as non-conformance management, process control, process safety, asset maintenance, etc. to grow production line and build the foundation for high-volume production
  • Gather data (labor hours, cycle times, fallout, etc.) to identify production bottlenecks, and propose and deploy solutions (design changes, process changes, equipment, automation, etc.)
  • Identify high return-on-investment capabilities, including capital equipment and software capabilities that improve manufacturing processes (partnering with production, finance, operations, and facilities teams)
  • Collaborate on development of future processes in parallel with supporting and enabling higher output on current production line

Required Skills:

  • Bachelor’s degree in engineering, with 6 years of technical work experience that includes development and improvement of production systems
  • Hands-on engineering or manufacturing experience in rate-based and high-volume manufacturing
  • Experience communicating with and influencing partners across organizational lines
