Job Description

Volt Workforce Solutions is hiring immediately for a Manufacturing Engineer II in Dulles, VA

Must have a current Top Secret clearance 

**Top 3 skills/abilities: Project management. Planning. Ability to work/lead a diverse team. Avoid Engineers looking for design work. We build existing designs.** 


•   No design work; manufacturing production environment where Engineers coordinate system-level builds and empower touch-labor Technicians. Daily interfacing with Program managers, Functional supervisors, and other disciplines like Elec/RF/QA is required, so good communication skills under occasionally stressful situations is essential. 


•   Occasional Hands-on work around extremely fragile space product installations and modifications. After proving reliability over time, more hands-on work becomes available. 


•   Ability to demonstrate general technical knowledge in manufacturing including interpreting complex engineering drawings, schematics, and diagrams. 


•   100% adherence to established ISO processes, diligence to detail, and efficient execution with quality results for cost effectiveness *absolutely required*. 


•   Ability to learn quickly. Bonding, taping, torquing, etc. with delicate honeycomb composite/aluminum panels and aluminum brackets a minimum. Must have "a touch" for delicate equipment. 


•   Ability to identify issues, escalate to appropriate channels, and implement solutions after engineering review to routine process problems of limited scope. 


•   Ability to work with diverse team, take constructive feedback from Safety and QA support personnel, and understudy with assigned mentor for up to 6 months is required. 


•   Responsible and evaluated for performance metrics with heavy emphasis on *quality of work and efficiency* 


•   Experience with working inside Clean Rooms, Hazardous Material Handling, Hazardous Operations protocols, and related operational protocols strongly recommended. 


•   Knowledge of basic 3D Modeling, Excel, Word, Powerpoint, general computer handling, and Tool Control helpful but not required. ESD, FOD, and 5S management techniques strongly recommended. 


•   Knowledge of advanced machine shop principles helpful. Little to no machine shop work is done by I&T Techs, but interfacing with Machine Dept. required on occasion. 


•   Focus for this level is *executing* technical processes, Northrop Grumman procedures, and helping the team produce quality work in a cost effective manner. All operations require a "Buddy system" for checks and balances. 

Second/third shift 24/7, weekend work, and occasional 4+ weeks travel on launch campaigns (international travel) are *required* of everyone. Occasional short-term projects with travel required. A rotating off-shift coverage allows Engineers to plan ahead up to 3 months, but last minute requests are common to support the dynamic schedules seen in I&T.

We offer many direct hire full-time positions as well as many contingent/temporary positions. We offer our workers competitive pay and benefits, as well as educational programs and redeployment assistance.
