Job Title:  PD Engineer (Design/Development) – Electromechanical Valves and/or Pumps (Lead Level - Jr./Support Level)

3 Openings

We are looking for 1 Lead PD Engineer to drive the entire design process.  This person will be responsible for the entire product line (Design/Development, Design Documentation, Task Assignment, etc..).  We are looking for someone with 7-10 years of experience working with Electromechanical parts and specifically valves and/or pumps.  We are getting very aggressive with pay and are willing to talk sign on bonuses, relocation, etc..  Base Salary for this role will most likely be $125K + so we want to hear from you if you are looking for more ($140-$150K).

We also need 2 PD Support Engineers.  We will consider recent college graduates for these roles, candidates with 1-2 years of experience or candidates with much more experience as a Support Design Engineer.  We just want driven, hard working employees who will be comfortable in a fast paced, self directed (non-micromanaged) environment.  We are growing rapidly and need people who can see an obstacle and overcome that obstacle rather than giving up.  Someone who is not afraid to ask questions and find a solution.  Base salary for these roles completely depends on experience but will probably range between $65K-$100K dependent upon schooling/experience.
