This individual will have a strong business mindset to negotiate with vendors, when needed, to procure pricing needed to maintain margins or when vendor pricing does not coincide with the technical specifications provided. This position is critical to the manufacturing of product as it functions as pre-engineering as well since all our PCBs are custom manufactured. Each design and spec is unique to each customer.

  9. Makes decisions with a balance of gross profits, margins, markup, and customer needs in mind.

 

In order to be successful in this position, a person must have excellent time management skills, attention to detail and the ability to problem solve/critical thinking. A good, working knowledge of CAD/CAM software is helpful, but not necessary, as we will train the right individual.
