Job Description

Engineering Manager - Senior Engineer
Commercial automotive products

Our client is an 80 year old, privately-held, Milwaukee metro-based manufacturer of automotive accessories sold internationally.  Their products are the “Kleenex” in the niches they dominate.  They can go one of two ways in this position, as the headline indicates.   A senior engineer who wants to be the technical expert without supervisory responsibilities, but will be a coach/ mentor to the younger engineers is one possibility.  If the right candidate would also like to have management responsibility for a small group of engineers, that also works.  This position focuses new product development (NPD). If you like solving problems, you will enjoy this role.
What’s good about the company:
  • They are the industry standard in most of the niches they occupy.
  • They are NOT in the low/no margin consumer auto business, but in heavy duty trucks, off the road and recreational vehicle markets, where you can still make a buck
  • Well-capitalized: their profitability has enabled continuing reinvestment in existing product improvement, and NPD
  • The management team has a collegial relationship.  The CEO is on a first name basis with his team.
  • Customers are topnotch- including Volvo, Ford, Peterbilt, and the like
  • Their products have a leading edge reputation in the business.
  • Privately held; No need to make short-term decisions to puff up quarterly earnings- decisions are made for the best long-term outcome
  • They have been told they are the best company to work with by their customers.  They are working on providing the best technology and prices as well. You can be part of that.

What’s good about the job:
  • Become the internal expert in one of the following: vibration, corrosion or actuatorsTime and resources will be allotted for you to do so.
  • Although things are going well, there is a good opportunity to have an impact by reducing warranty costs with improved designs.
  • Wear a number of hats- not confined to a narrow focus
  • Mentor a group of young, sharp engineers coming off internships at the firm
  • CAD work mostly done by CAD designers, so you will do more engineering.
  • High visibility internally and with major customer executives
  • Products are safety related, and truly save lives

Job Requirements

What the successful candidate will offer:
  • Familiarity with designing plastic injection molded and die cast parts 
  • Knowledge or strong interest in vibration, corrosion or actuators
  • Familiarity with 3-D modeling: Pro-E or similar

Nice to Have:
  • Knowledge of mirrors, cameras and/or vision systems for vehicles
