Hi Team!

$115-140k base – depends on experience. Performance based bonus
No vaccine requirement
Hiring manager will not look at any candidates who do not have at least 5 years of experience in food manufacturing or consumer packaged goods industry  
Need to have experience managing projects. Experience with identifying and purchasing equipment, identifying vendors great to have 
Prefer Bachelor’s degree in Manufacturing or Electrical Engineering but not a hard requirement – industry and years of experience more important 
Will not see candidates who hop jobs – won’t see anyone who’s only been at their current company for 2 years. 5 years at current company is ideal
AutoCAD and SolidWorks experience is ideal, other CAD technologies also okay (SketchUp, MicroStation, ActCAD, ArchiCAD, BricsCAD etc)
30% travel in the JD refers to the new site they’re looking to set up in the Midwest. Nothing set in stone with that new site but this position would help develop the new Midwest plant

They’ve missed the mark by not having correct industry experience or short tenures at their companies
