Job Description:

Would you jump at the chance to help grow a new business, but with the support network and funding of a global company behind you? Have you been waiting for a chance to apply your manufacturing experience using innovative solutions for major OEMs and Suppliers in a variety of industries? If you are fatigued with bureaucracy, and chasing parts, come and create a new business with us.

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.

The Team

The manufacturing engineering program delivers production solutions to aerospace OEMs across the US. Made up of manufacturing and industrial engineers, this program provides a variety of services to our customers: process planning, tooling/fixture design, CNC/CMM programming, QN reduction, and shop floor support. From aircraft to spacecraft, come join our team and work on the cutting edge of the aerospace industry.

The Role

We need an offline CNC programmer with expertise in NX Cam to support our aerospace customer. This role will include supporting not just CNC Programming but also to drive reduction in cycle times and improved quality.

Our Culture

We just crossed the 21-year mark, and despite remarkable growth, we have maintained a culture of empowerment at all levels—what we call entrepreneurial. 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.
