Sr. Design Engineer - Great Role at Small Industrial Manufacturer


Top Job

Located in Troy, MI

Salary: commensurate upon experience

Serving diverse industries, our company prides itself in its ability to assess the application needs of its customers and provide innovative solutions.

We produce standard components for locating, clamping, sliding, lifting, ejecting, transporting, stopping and rotating applications. The modular nature of our products enables the adaptation of our components to a wide range of applications.

We are designers, builders, and manufacturers.



We are seeking mid-level to senior-level Design Engineer to join our small team. Our existing engineer is moving on after 22 years with the company. This role not only includes design, but also prototyping, testing and help with manufacturing. It’s very hands-on. If you like fixing things, troubleshooting and working in a “machine shop” feeling environment, you will love it here. No big company politics and processes.

We seek a highly creative person with an entrepreneurial spirit. You will develop new products, bring new ideas and have the ability to work on many things. You will improve existing products and creativity will be required to design custom products for our customers.

This is a dream job for the right person! You will have freedom in this role. Freedom invent. Freedom to innovate. Freedom to fail. Freedom to pursue many different activities. You will be hands on. You won’t just design . . . you will see it all the through to manufacturing and beyond.

Being a company with 50 employees, we move fast and decisions are made quickly. To succeed in our environment, you will need to be self-driven, independent, and able to work with very little oversight and daily direction. You will also need to work well with others. This is a great company, a great role . . . and it pays very well.
