Do you combine flexibility with strong communication skills? If so, this may be a great fit for you!
This is a fast-paced, high-volume environment, where priorities and scope of work can shift quickly. To excel in this role, you'll need to be flexible and tolerant of change, able to shift gears and work around project needs. You will need to be a fast and independent learner, able to get up to speed quickly, willing to learn in a hands-on way with the machines and on the job, able to jump in and figure things out, asking questions as needed to ensure you are aligned with company and department needs and goals.
You’ll also need to be a good communicator with strong interpersonal skills, able to understand and hold technical discussions with others at all levels of the organization (not just other engineers). This is not a heads-down role, but instead, you’ll do plenty of work with others throughout the global organization as well as with our customers, so you’ll need to be comfortable in a people-facing role, approaching each interaction with a customer service mindset.
Critical thinking skills will be important, as well as the ability to make good judgments. Once you’re trained, you’ll be on your own, acting as the ‘owner’ of the technology and behaving as a mentor to the people at the labs you visit. Our ideal candidate is results-oriented and demonstrates a spirit of innovation. If you’re able to propose and develop new processes and techniques with an eye towards the customer environment while ensuring current processes are continuously improving, this could be a good fit for you.
In addition, in order to be an outstanding process engineer on our Global team, you will need the following core competencies and characteristics:
- Ability to influence without having direct authority.
- A hands-on approach with a continuous improvement mindset.
- Ability to build relationships and gain buy-in, while still being assertive where necessary.
- Ability to thrive in a dynamic, fast-growth environment.
- Flexibility and adaptability.
- A positive, team-oriented attitude.
- Integrative, transparency, openness and honesty.
