Volt is looking for a Materials Engineering Technician to work on-site with our customer John Deere in East Moline, IL in a contingent position forecasted for 4 years.

This position will retrieve, move and section parts for metallurgical exams. This may include hardness testing, case depth evaluation and microstructure evaluation.

You will take work direction (location of sections needed, testing to be performed) from John Deere Materials Engineering staff. You may be asked to present your method and findings to local groups of quality engineers or operations staff.


Ideally we would like to see recent graduates with a degree in Material Science. Chemical engineer as an alternative.

They would highly prefer to interview candidates onsite so they can show them the lab and the work station, so candidates that are able to drive onsite for the interview will be given preference.
