* Advise management regarding engineering problems and recommend ways to solve them.

* Work closely with management and colleagues to maintain and improve the quality of our design drawings.

Keys to Success

We operate in a high-energy, high-expectations environment where you'll enjoy the autonomy to do your work with minimal supervision, as long as you deliver quality and accurate control system designs on-time and follow your work through all project phases. To be successful in our culture, you'll be self-motivated, ready to engage and have an upbeat attitude. You'll need a sense of urgency, follow-through, and a desire to learn and contribute. Flexibility will be important because change is constant. Your communication skills must also be strong as you work effectively across functions, interact with an array of stakeholders, and work to break down silos and understand what other departments need. In addition, you will need:
