Who is QuEST?
We are a global product engineering and lifecycle solutions company. Our goal is to become the most recognized and trusted global engineering partner for our customers—Fortune 500 companies in the Aerospace, Defense, 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 help them make their products the most competitive in the world and that’s how we’ve grown to over 12,000 problem solvers in 50 centers around the world. We aspire to be a 100-year company, which doesn’t mean staid and boring, but that we evolve and adapt to create the frontier of the industry.
QuEST has a track record of scaling services for new customers. We are leveraging that expertise to build a new team 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 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 high performing engineering teams by performing financial analysis and reporting. 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.
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 healthy as a business in a challenging industry. Our focus is on fostering a collaborative environment based on the belief that we can be more effective and achieve more as a team rather than individually.
