Job Description

Bring a new product to market.  This position is a multifaceted role that includes some Final Design tweaks, Establishing a Supply Chain, Introducicing the product into Manufacturing and even helping to develop Sales and Installation manuals.  

Basically we have already developed a new product, and built a few prototypes.  We are looking for an multifaceted individual with an engineering background (Solidworks is a plus) to help bring this into a full manufactured product.  

This is a perfect opportunity to develop a range of skills that will boost your career.  You will start with understanding the Design; making some changes as we go through the process; Establishing the Supply Chain and doing research to find best prices and trade offs; Purchasing initial quantities for early production; Helping to establish Market Pricing; Creating Manufacturing Procedures and Work flow.  Much of this has already been started, so it is more a matter of solidifying everything.  

You will oversee the establishment of early manufacturing and become an Operations Manager - who also circles back around and aids in development of modifications and next generation versions of the product.

Looking for a smart, multimodal individual who has either an educational background in mechanical engineering, supply chain management, or product development.    This position will result in you being involved in all the above as well as aspects of business management.
