Supplier Quality Engineer - Charlotte, NC
Would you jump at the chance to support an office on the cutting edge in technology in the Power Generation field with the support network of experienced leadership behind you? Have you been waiting for a chance to apply your procurement know-how to assist a fast paced growing office from a remote environment? If you are fatigued with bureaucracy, and the same monotonous day to day job, then come and be part of our team.
**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.
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.
This position is for a Supplier Quality Engineer (SQE). This position will provide support to the Supplier Quality Management department in Supplier Qualification, product & process qualification, Supplier Quality Management, Supplier Improvement & Design review and improvement.
We just crossed the 25-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.
