You turn your researched ideas and drafts into technical plans for prototypes that will impress our customers. From there, we work as a team to turn the concept into a working model for our production crew.

It's a good thing that you are known for being persistent! Your excellent communication skills also come in handy as you report to project managers and clients throughout the process.

You work closely with the production team with all new products to ensure success upon roll out. You enjoy the variety and challenge inherent in your work and feel good about the part you play in keeping our customers coming back for more!
