Vice President of Engineering
Our client (a very well-respected manufacturer of high-quality lighting) is seeking a smart, humble hands-on Vice President of Engineering to lead their engineering department and serve as a critical member of the executive team, helping to set the strategic direction of the organization!
Your experience with high-end, high-quality exterior lighting fixtures (whether industrial, architectural, landscape or explosion proof), your knowledge of diecasting and extrusions, your openness to new ideas and change and your passion for product quality will help you as you run and manage our client’s engineering department. You’ll manage the design and flow of new products at their various stages, manage ECOs and provide your engineering expertise—from being a resource for design, UL/CSA testing, material resources for castings, extrusions, even to 3D printing.
Our ideal candidate is a Vice President or Director of Engineering or Engineering Manager with a minimum of 5-10 years engineering management experience who loves being a mentor to help develop our client’s engineering talent. Our ideal candidate also has broad experience with aluminum, plastics, glass, LEDs and drivers. IoT and/or smart lighting experience are highly preferred but not critical. Engineering degree (mechanical engineering, architectural engineering, or electrical engineering) is a big plus, but not critical. 10% travel.
