Florida – Sr. Automation Engineer – Lead The Charge – #1450

How’s this for career leverage? An international design / build engineering and automation firm only now starts to position its U.S. Headquarters (in Florida!)

A list of Fortune 100 Companies already loves them. Work visas are expiring. And they need their FIRST full-time permanent U.S. Automation Engineer now, as they begin building their U.S. Team. They’re currently busy in five markets across the U.S. and expanding.

If you were the first U.S. employee on board, how far do you think you could run with this one?

Some say Director level in two years. Wow.

Please. Don’t just “apply.” Read this ENTIRE story, so you totally understand what’s happening. This is a solid opportunity, it’s fast, and I need you to write me something useful – quickly – so we can make sense for an employer who needs to move immediately.  (IMMEDIATELY)

You and I will talk. We just have to be efficient. Thanks, and please read on…

Advance Notice – Control Systems Engineer – Chicago – Food/Bev, Pharma

Through some quirk of fate, a really good looking Chicago based company finds itself looking for a Controls Engineer to join their flagship operation. Here’s your Advance Notice. Take a serious look at this one.

First off, they’ve got a terrific proposition…

  • Little to no travel. (You’ll be home!)

  • 40-ish hour work week. (You’ll have a life!)

  • Soft schedule. (Less stress.)

  • Strong Pay and benefits. (Go figure.)

You’ve gotta love it.

They want somebody promotable.  (Career growth!  That’s a good sign.)

And the company’s financials are excellent.  (Security!  Excellent.)

They are growing geographically, and they are expanding their product lines, serving leaders in Food and Beverage and the Pharmaceutical industries. (These are great markets, by the way. As people around the world improve their incomes, they eat more, and they eat better. How cool is that?)

This has to be a fun place to work. Innovation is a big deal with these guys, so there’s always a new project coming on for the controls engineers.

And, like I said, this is the flagship plant of a worldwide operation. This single facility spreads over a quarter square mile. Not only do they have the money, but, for sure, this is a location where you can be confident they’ll do things right.

I’ve spent some time talking to the Manager. I like him a lot.

I’m headed to Chicago to meet the team next week. (I’ll probably be there around 9/19/12.)

If you might be interested, give me a shout. Let’s talk about it.

This Advance Notice post gives you the jump on the crowd.

I’ll be sending out the proper announcement with all the specs shortly.

The President has guaranteed proper staffing support in Dallas. Sophisticated communications networks are fully operational.

  • The Texas division of that company is dedicated to your specialty.  And it’s the company’s first provider of controls and automation systems… invited to every construction project in this hemisphere.

  • Money is never a problem.  Every project is funded.

  • And the Texas division wants to grow revenue in a solid and serious way. (Construction included.) Right now.

  • Texas is hiring.

  • Oh, yeah.  And this is a management position, reporting directly to the Texas CEO.

I rarely see a combination of events come together so powerfully.  Here’s the situation…

1418 Operations Manager; Game Changer

If you had virtually free rein to run the operations of a fast growing pipeline services company, could you keep up with an increasing avalanche of sales? Can you grow the operations side 400% in the next two years?

I caught up with the president of this company at a recent show. Here’s the first thing he said to me:

“I want an execution guy with enthusiasm and optimism, who knows the industry, and who can deliver anything we sell.”

Knowing the range of products and services – from hands on in-field pipeline monitoring, control, and SCADA services, to software products for measurement and custody transfer – I double checked that last statement. “ANYTHING you sell?”

“ANYTHING. If I sell it, I want a guy who will deliver it.”

OK, that said, I suggested we change the title from Execution Guy to Operations Manager. Could avoid a misunderstanding.
