Mechanical Design Engineer
Looking for your chance to join a growing and engaged engineering team in the aerospace field? Have you been waiting for a chance to apply your engineering know-how to come up with innovative solutions to complex problems? QuEST Global is looking for an experienced candidate to join our engineering team in order to continue our growth and to enhance our service offerings. If you like seeking out complex challenges to solve, and using the latest techniques to design new game-changing products, come and be a part of our team.
Who is QuEST?
Our goal is to become the most recognized and trusted global engineering partner for our customers—Fortune 500 companies in the Aerospace, Medical Devices, Oil & Gas, Power, and Transportation industries. We know we can find solutions to their most important technical and business challenges they encounter. We aren’t consultants. We help them make their products the most competitive in the world and that’s how we’ve grown to over 11,000 problem solvers from 50 centers around the world. We aspire to be a 100-year company, which doesn’t mean staid and boring, but rather, we evolve and adapt to create the frontier of the engineering services industry.
We are an innovative & fast paced engineering team. Always eager to learn and to solve new problems, we look to stay ahead of industry trends and work closely with our partners to come up with novel solutions. You will help to continue this rich history, and will work to push us even further down an innovative path. You will work closely with current and new customers, and are encouraged to help develop new solutions to engineering challenges. All employees are empowered to make decisions and take ownership of their teams and customer relationships. We are never satisfied with the status quo, and relentlessly seek out better and more efficient ways of solving problems.
The successful candidate will draw upon their experience to aid in the design and analysis of gas turbine engine components. Collaboration and a forward thinking approach are important to ensure we remain the supplier of choice for our customers. You will also be the face of QuEST to your customers. Through listening to customer challenges, and building on your previous experiences, you will find creative approaches that will solve their most difficult engineering problems.
We just crossed the 21-year mark, and despite remarkable growth, we have maintained a culture of empowerment at all levels—what we call intrapreneurial. You will be part of the decision making to drive continuous improvements so we can stay happy and healthy as a business in a challenging industry. Not everyone is a great fit. We will throw you into the deep end (with lots of support), but if you want to swim, you have much opportunity. We’re not a place where laziness, ego, or rigid thinking fit in, and that’s intentional. You can do more at this company than you can in twice the time anywhere else. We accelerate success; you control the throttle and hold the yoke.
