Quality Engineering Manager


This is an interesting role because what we are looking for cannot easily been read on a resume. 

Our site (as well as globally) is going through a lot of transition.  We are commanding anywhere from 50-80% in market share within the markets we are doing business and we have grown significantly in site/headcount since 2013 as well as sales/revenue. 

We just brought in a fantastic new head of quality who wants to take global quality to the next level.  We are looking for someone who:

•Comes from a high-volume manufacturing background (does not necessarily have to be semiconductor…although this could be a plus)

•Must be use to 24/7 fast paced manufacturing environment.

•High-energy individual

•Roll-up sleeves kind of person!

•We are looking for a strong leader; we are not looking for a green up-and-comer. 

Okay here are the biggies:

•Six-Sigma/Lean all those fancy terms a must!

•This is not a sit at the desk and admin the QMS or someone who wants to just deliver fancy metrics about what is broken/non-compliant.  We do not want someone who is going to be a quality police.  We are not looking for someone who walked into an organization that was smooth sailing with a nice quality system and just admined the system along…

•We want a proactive, solutions-oriented individual. 

•Resolution facilitator

•We want someone who has come in to a broken quality system and fixed it.  We want someone who wants to be part of the change.
