The right candidate will find a home in our team with opportunities for growth, diverse experience, and rewards for years to come.

The ideal candidate must have the ability to be a quick starter, good communicator, able to work in a small team setting, interact with all levels of the business team, and work with minimal oversight. With the size of the team and the breadth of our responsibilities, they must be willing and able to pick up new skills and knowledge, and dig into applications and technologies to help support our users, as well as continue to develop their skills and knowledge as we move our technical stack forward.

As a department, we place a high value on happy users. To that end we are hands on, with the application team spending a portion of our time directly supporting users.

We are a manufacturing environment and focused on stability and product delivery. While planning to modernize our technical stack and move forward, we're seeking candidates with a pragmatic approach.
