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 a dynamic team, actively growing, and full of ambition and excitement. Our employees develop deep familiarity with our customers, their products, and tools, while our internal QuEST managers champion a performance culture and ensure team engagement. You are empowered to make decisions, but with support from your leadership when you need it.
The successful candidate for this position provides solutions in the areas of but not limited to; process planning, shop support activities and project management. They are able to work within a team as well as independently, and have a passion for continuous improvement. You will be the face of QuEST to your customers. You will listen to customer’s problems, build on the experiences you have personally had, and then develop innovative ways to assess and resolve their 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.
