Sr. Process  Engineer – Plastics Manufacturing Processing

Direct hire with benefits, annual bonus, and relocation

VISA sponsorship / transfer not available for this position

  • Pay: Up to $110K + annual bonus opportunity + relocation package
  • Location: Wichita, KS area
  • Appropriate Engineering Backgrounds: Must have injection molding and/or plastic extrusion experience
  • Bonus Skills; RJG / Master Molder / Scientific Molding (not required) 


This direct hire opening is with a global plastics company that has dozens of facilities across N. America. They offer solid benefits and 401K packages. Annual bonus is steady (8-23%), and relocation package is fantastic.  There are around 175 employees in this location and roughly 25 plastic production lines (plastic injection molding, extrusion).


THE JOB: Sr. Manufacturing Engineer / Project Engineer / Plant Engineer / Process Engineer

The position is essentially a project engineer that leans heavily on the processing side (from NPD to post production cost-savings via line efficiency).  Projects will range from new product introduction, new equipment installs, continuous improvement, equipment reliability & up-time, and product quality & corrective actions. Other duties will include SOP development, creating manuals, and training program development.


This is an on-the-floor role around 60% of the time – you will not be sitting down on CAD programs or doing copious amounts of regulatory paperwork. You will work with high speed production lines and downstream equipment. Your role will be a mixture of process engineer, manufacturing, engineer, scale up / NPD (during new product roll outs), and continuous improvement / cost savings. You will wear these different hats in concert with the stages of projects that you juggle.  


This is a very large plastics company with dozens of locations. Advancement can be into technical management, operations management, or corporate engineering. 

Job Requirements

  • 4 year degree 100% needed. Engineering degree highly preferred: BSME (mechanical engineering), BSEE (electrical engineering), BS Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Polymer Science, Plastics Engineering, etc. BS Manufacturing, etc.
  • 100 % needed: either plastic extrusion or injection molding experience
  • You have held an engineering role for 2+ years at a plastics plant: Process engineer, manufacturing engineer, industrial engineer, materials engineer, continuous improvement engineer, plant engineer, equipment engineer, product development engineer, extrusion engineer, molding engineer, etc.
