This is a small division of a privately-held global corporation, a leader in its line of capital equipment, with over 3000 employees. The atmosphere is quite casual and down-to-earth. Everybody pitches in when the time comes for final product assembly and for disassembly for transport. Orders have been booked so far to keep them busy throughout 2018.

Systems include large electric motors, motor drives, computerized inspection systems, conveyors, hydraulic and pneumatic subsystems, winders, and much more. Responsibilities are typical. In addition to CAD design, this engineer will be coordinating the entire project, developing preliminary drawings, selecting components, making calculations using ANSYS to size components and loads, preparing specifications of components for purchasing, approving vendor submittals, dealing directly with customers, and much more. The Engineering Manager mentioned that he would hire a capital equipment design engineer without the project management background and would groom them to be able to handle all pieces of projects.
