The Role:
Basic Function: Manufacturing engineering includes development and application of various processes and utilization of specialized equipment to efficiently accomplish such objectives as fabrication, production, modification or repair of Company products.

Under limited direction, perform a variety of complex engineering assignments requiring in-depth knowledge of a specific engineering discipline plus an understanding of related disciplines to cost effectively achieve objectives. Assignments typically require the use of advanced and innovative techniques. Proactively seek and implement initiatives to improve operations and increase customer satisfaction.

Typical duties/responsibilities for engineering may include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Design, analyze, and evaluate systems, products or components, requiring a high degree of technical expertise.
* Design and develop complex models or simulations and apply advanced computer programs, analytical techniques or control strategies to effectively meet requirements and resolve problems.
* Act as principal investigator or lead a group of engineers investigating problems, developing solutions and preparing related recommendations and reports.
* Conduct economic studies and prepare or lead the preparation of specifications, proposals for contracts, licensing and safety documents, and obtain required approvals.
* Represent the group in meetings and conferences; interact with customers to resolve significant technical issues and develop related action plans
* Complexity of Tasks: Requires thorough knowledge of a specific engineering discipline plus an understanding of related disciplines to coordinate activities, analyze and resolve problems crossing disciplines and to develop new concepts for programs. Technical input, recommendations and decisions may impact the organization's effectiveness and customer relations. Requires ability to interface effectively, internally and with customers.

Job Responsibilities
* Sustaining manufacturing support of products primarily used for natural gas flow measurement.
* Sustaining manufacturing support of analog and digital hardware boards and assemblies, test systems and applications
* Research, investigate and define new areas of technology to enhance existing products manufacturability and testability.
* Evaluate and make recommendations on design and implementation of current products for product testability and obsolescence.
* Interface with component suppliers to evaluate components, electromechanical components, test equipment and systems for manufacturing test.
* Involved in multiple manufacturing sustaining projects running concurrently.

Job Experience
* Gas flow measurement equipment
