QuEST Global Quality Engineer in Fort Worth, Texas
QuEST exists to provide positive effect to our customers and team members by engineering creative solutions. We are looking for an addition to our Aerospace Quality team. Is this you? Can you support the coordination and completion of quality actions, driving and representing a culture of quality? If so we would love to talk to you.
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.
This is an exciting new opportunity at a different geographical location with an existing customer. The role will require initial coordination with customers onsite as well as customers and QuEST teams offsite – particularly Oakville, Ontario. It’s tremendous opportunity to be a part of “ground floor” support in a new location, with flexibility and empowerment!
This position is for a Quality Engineer supporting corrective action identification, development, implementation, and tracking in an assembly plant environment. This requires lots of hands-on interaction with the quality data, as well as the cross-functional teams (CFTs) onsite and offsite. Strong and effective communication is necessary to be successful in this role. Ultimately, overdue / incomplete / unidentified quality actions can cause increased costs, reduction of quality, and severe hindrances in the manufacturing / assembly process – the goal is support an effort to reduce these items. Listen to customer’s problems, and build on the experiences you have personally had, then develop innovative ways for your team to solve their problems.
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 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.
