About Joining the Process Engineering (Manufacturing Engineering) Talent Community
We are constantly looking for phenomenal people to join our team – but we also understand that timing is everything.
You may not be ready to make a move, but you’re open to exploring your options. We’re planning on growing steadily over the next several years – so whether you’re looking now or later – we’ll probably have something interesting for you to consider at some point soon.
Joining our talent community for Process Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering means we’ll stay in touch, keep you informed on what we’re doing, what’s happening in our industry, and connect from time to time with some new positions we believe you’ll want to hear about.
Process Engineering at a Glance
These teams are the Problem Solvers when it comes to preparing a system for delivery to a customer.
You will author the process for our product's final assembly, and the order and method by which each of the thousands of components go together into a single system. These technical documents become formal part of our state-of-the-art Manufacturing Execution System that we rely on for on-time delivery.
We have a team of Manufacturing Engineers for each major discipline in WESCAM so that every area of development is covered:
* Optical Engineering
* Electrical Engineering
* Mechanical Engineering
Additionally, our Manufacturing Engineers/Process Engineers are often selected to move on into Design roles, supported to pursue their P.Eng designations or join our leadership teams.
If you are thinking about a career move this year, or within the next 5 years – join or talent community. Your dream job could be just around the corner.
Domain Expertise We Look For
Our Process Engineers/Manufacturing Engineers tackle problems that range from the simple to the complex. Our team can solve it within an hour – or it might take longer.
It could be a one-off problem or a recently discovered trend that requires deep analysis, perhaps re-design work with our Quality Engineering team. It may be an electrical assembly or an opto-mechanical system that our team focuses on – so the expertise we seek can cover a lot of ground. Below are some of the things that are important:
* PFMEA tools
* MAPS tools
* WICI’s tools
* Root Cause Analysis and Trending Analysis
* Mechanical/Electrical/Optical/Quality Engineering
* Technical Writing / Process Writing
* Industry experience in Automotive, Pharma, Industrial Engineering, Auto-Parts Manufacturing
Also, the ability to play a musical instrument is also high on the list – we have 7 in-company bands and we’re always looking for a guitar lead or a drummer.
Education / Academic Backgrounds We Look For
Manufacturing Engineering degrees are becoming more common at many post-secondary institutions, and in addition to that we welcome those with a broad-spectrum technical degree / diploma in either electrical, mechanical, systems, industrial engineering or technologist degrees/diplomas.
