Who is QuEST?

Our goal is to become the most recognized and trusted global engineering partner for our customers—Fortune 500 companies in the Aerospace, Medical Devices, Oil & Gas, Power, and Transportation industries. We know we can find solutions to their most important technical and business challenges they encounter. We aren’t consultants. We help them make their products the most competitive in the world and that’s how we’ve grown to over 11,000 problem solvers from 50 centers around the world. We aspire to be a 100-year company, which doesn’t mean staid and boring, but rather, we evolve and adapt to create the frontier of the engineering services industry.

The Team

QuEST has a track record of scaling services for new customers. We are leveraging that expertise to build a new team in Southern California supporting one of the largest defense contractors in the country. As a member of this team, you will be on the front lines helping establish the next big account for QuEST. Experienced managers in Delivery will be supporting you and the new team as we launch our unique Engineering Process Services model to help our customers recapture some of their precious bandwidth and help them deliver top notch aerospace and defense products.

The Role

The successful candidate will possess a combination of technical and behavioral skills to thrive in an engineering environment. You will perform a critical support role in assisting overburdened Project Engineers. You will help understand the problem, gather necessary information, and prepare documents to obtain approvals for the changes to be implemented. But perhaps most importantly, you will help our customers deliver high quality products on time. How? By being proactive in overcoming obstacles, providing answers to questions, keeping the process moving, and always looking for ways to improve.

Our Culture

We just crossed the 21-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 have much 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.
