This is a well-established, 40-year-old science and manufacturing company that is a significant player in the Agriculture industry. This role will be part of their Central Engineering team which supports facilities throughout the United States. This may be a $3B company, but they retain a very entrepreneurial spirit. It is privately-held and has been growing in leaps and bounds over the past 10-15 years.
What You Will Be Doing:
Currently, this company is in the process of automating all of their facilities. This person will be designing control scheme, working with contractors and vendors for installation, overseeing start-up, programming controls and training operators and plant staff on how to use the systems.

This is a highly visible role, reporting directly to the Director of Engineering and working with plant leadership folks at each of the facilities. This person will have a clear path to managing a team of folks in the near term as this project advances – the timetable for that transition into leadership could be as quick as 3-6 months after starting.
