Mechanical Engineer- fluid/gas handling Southern Litchfield County, CT

Enjoy working in a small company where you are involved in every aspect of system design and fabrication? Seeking a recession-proof position to provide stability for your family? This 50+ year old manufacturer of large, complex systems for the Dept. of Defense seeks a Mechanical Engineer with some experience designing fluid or gas handling systems. In the ‘80s, we termed a company like this a “country club.” In fact, this position is open due to an upcoming retirement. After training, exempt employees work a hybrid system, working from home, as well as the office. Their air-conditioned suburban facility is conveniently located to Route 8. The systems contain thousands of components, including PLC and proprietary microprocessor-based controls, hydraulics, high power electrical, rotating equipment, electrochemical systems, pressure vessels, and more. It takes 9 months to build one of these systems. Reporting to the V.P. of Engineering, you’ll be designing and testing pressurized systems using PTC Creo, taking them all the way through manufacturing. Salary ranges from $90,000 to $140,000, depending on experience. Exemplary benefits include 100% company paid major medical!, tuition aid, company-matched 401 (k) with a 50% match up to 4% of employee contribution, a profit sharing plan which has been paying 7.5% of salary, an “incentive bonus” which has been paying out 10% of salary, and more. The atmosphere was described as “relaxed and not stressful.” Requires U.S. citizenship, a BSME or BS in Materials Engineering or Welding, 3 or more years experience designing fluid or gas-handling systems including pressure vessels and piping, and some knowledge of welding procedures. Previous exposure designing to military standards is strongly preferred. Relocation assistance is not offered on this one.
