New Open Position at PADT: Product Design Engineer

PADT Employees

We thought we were catching up by recently filling two open positions: CFD Simulation Engineer and a sales position in Utah.  But then another opportunity opened up to add a full time Product Design Engineer in support of PADT’s line of products for cleaning additive manufacturing parts.  Although this position will work with our Product Development team, it is actually part of our advanced manufacturing group since the role focuses exclusively on a single product line which that group designs, manufactures, and supports.   The job description is listed below, and can be found on our Careers Page along with the other currently open positions:

Electrical Engineer/Project Lead 
IT Support Engineer
Sales Support Specialist, 3D Printing
Product Design Engineer

Follow the directions on the Careers Page to apply. And by all means, feel free to pass this along to anyone you think might be interested.
