Ready to leave the travel behind? Like to upgrade to a division of a Fortune 500 corporation? A Connecticut-based smaller subsidiary of a multi-billion, publicly held, global corporation needs you to diagnose, repair, and upgrade highly complex automated systems on 2nd shift at their customer site in Greater Burlington, North Carolina. This is a classy, state-of-the-art operation. Hardly any employees leave here. This is open due to expansion. New machines have just been installed. The systems are high speed, 4,500 square foot in size, with over 70 stations. They include 4 axis robotic arms, conveyors, bar code scanners, machine vision, pneumatic actuators, sensors, servomotors, and more. The custom controls are web-enabled. It takes 11 months to build one of these machines! They can complete 1,000,000 operations a shift.

Once trained, you’ll be working on-site, running factory tests, upgrading software and automation instruments, conducting validation tests, providing emergency service, training operators, and more. They will train on their proprietary software. Salary ranges from $65,000 to $90,000, depending on level of experience. A 10% shift differential is added for 2nd shift. There is significant overtime available paid at time and a half, which with overtime, should bring in another $12,000 to $15,000 annually. Benefits are outstanding, typical of any Fortune 500 company, including Medical, Dental, Vision, supervisory training, adoption assistance program, a matched 401 (k) plan, tuition aid, etc. Requires permanent U.S. residency, three or more years experience installing and servicing complex robotic/automated equipment, ability to read schematics and blueprints, experience loading software, knowledge of diagnostic instruments like multimeters, oscilloscopes, and micrometers, and strong electromechanical troubleshooting skills.
