We’re seeking a Process Engineer for a 12-18 month temporary role.  This is for a long term client south of Albany (30-40 minute commute), working in a great work culture of high performers who take pride in their work. Hours would primarily revolve around a Monday through Friday schedule (exceptions may arise from time to time based on production lines running). 

What will you be doing?

Our client is adding a new production line. You’ll be working in and around the operations and production facility of our client’s manufacturing environment. You’ll be designing, revising, updating, and scaling up manufacturing processes (including instruments, equipment, and setting up tests for manufactured goods). Part of the design process includes setting up schedules of events like time to completion, cost of raw materials, building in maintenance schedules, and analyzing the systems and components of one or more, complex manufacturing lines. You will also build up documentation and processes to anticipate potential failures, maintenance related to such, potential causes, and solutions.

This isn’t a solo gig, so you will need to be able to get along well with others, play well in a collaborative team environment, but act independently to make recommendations for improvements, modifications, or additions to record/document work needed for completion. 


Position Description:

·         Provide guidance and expertise in applying process engineering principles to existing operations. Lead and collaborate on improvements, updates of key projects in the organization involving process, systems, and specific capabilities of existing production/packaging equipment for sustainable improvements.

·         Set, revise, and work around pre-existing dates for completion of assigned projects.

·         Identify potential risks and solutions using technical risk assessment

·         Run trials, validate activities, provide documentation, and record areas for improvement

·         Support the identification of Critical Process Parameters (CPP) for all new and existing products, to ensure appropriate control systems are in place for process operations.

·         Make sure compliance is adhered to with site procedural guidelines, GMPs, and Safety/Health requirements



·         Bachelor’s degree in engineering or related field of study

·         5-6 years of experience in a manufacturing setting

·         1-2 years of experience working in a process control/design/improvement role, handling complex processes and process changes

·         1-2 years of experience managing complex projects, including working with multiple vendors and strict deadlines.

·         Working knowledge or hands on knowledge working in a Lean Manufacturing setting (Lean, Six Sigma preferred)

·         Ability to read and interpret reports, plan drawings & instructions of various manufactured products

·         Computer skills for data entry, report generation, summaries and other documentation required (Word, Excel, ability to quickly learn)
