Manufacturing Engineer- CNC machining Greater Danbury, CT

Like to be the sole Manufacturing Engineer in house? This division of a highly profitable publicly held $10.9 Billion manufacturer of commercial and military products rank #1 or #2 in the industry worldwide. Open due to the loss of a 15-year employee, this will be the only Manufacturing Engineer in house. They have a highly team-oriented, comfortable environment with friendly, enthusiastic management. The average employee has worked here 25 years! They rarely work late or on Saturdays. You’ll be dealing with in-house Design Engineers and with two manufacturing engineers in their Mexican facility. There could be a trip to Mexico once a year. You will be involved in a wide range of operations. In addition to CNC machining, you’ll support CNC Swiss screw machining, powdered metal die casting, metal stamping, plastic injection molding, and assembly operations. This situation was described to me as a “big model shop, a fast turn facility with quick reaction to the customers.” A majority of their products are for the automotive and electronics industries. They also work with a wide variety of materials, which include copper, brass, stainless steel, beryllium alloys and plastics. In addition to creating CNC machining and Swiss CNC processes and programming the equipment, you will be devising new assembly methods, undertaking cost and manufacturability analyses, designing and specifying tooling and attachments, handling vendors, supporting maintenance and production staff running and maintaining manufacturing equipment, and more. The hours can be either 8 to 5 PM or 7 to 4 PM. Salary ranges from $85,000 to $100,000, depending on level of experience. Fine benefits include major medical, dental, Christmas bonus (running 3% lately), 100% tuition aid, 12 holidays, life and disability insurance, and an attractive company-matched 401 (k) plan. After contributing 3% of salary, the company will match 50% of the employee contribution up to 4% of salary. This means an employee contribution of $8,000 will receive a $4,000 company match. This could be a “hire for life” situation. Requires permanent U.S. residency, a BS or AS degree, and three or more years experience supporting a CNC machining operation including CNC programming in a manufacturing environment. Any background in the other operations mentioned above is preferred. There is also an opening here for a CNC Programmer.
