Control Engineer – Pitch Systems

Job Description :

Would you jump at the chance to support an office on the cutting edge in technology in the Renewable Power Generation field with the support network of experienced leadership behind you? Have you been waiting for a chance to apply your Testing know-how to assist a fast paced growing office? If you are fatigued with bureaucracy, and the same monotonous day to day job, then come and be part of our team.

The Team

We are a growing, new team with ambition and excitement. Experienced managers in Delivery will be supporting you and the new team to manage the work and deliverables. You will have help, but this is a place to innovate. You will have new customers, and are encouraged to design new solutions to engineering challenges. You are empowered to make decisions, but with support from your leadership when you need it.

Our Culture

We just crossed the 24-year mark, and despite remarkable growth, we have maintained a culture of empowerment at all levels—what we call intrapreneurial. You will be part of the decision making to drive continuous improvements so we can stay happy and healthy as a business in a challenging industry. Not everyone is a great fit. We will throw you into the deep end (with lots of support), but if you want to swim, you will have the opportunity. We’re not a place where laziness, ego, or rigid thinking fit in, and that’s intentional. You can do more at this company than you can in twice the time anywhere else. We accelerate success; you control the throttle and hold the yoke.
