Engineering Systems Inc

Dallas

Do you love to take things apart and put them back together again? Do you have a technology mindset and an endless fascination for what makes things tick? If you could pick your superpower, would it be X-ray vision? Officially, you’ll be a technologist -- operating, planning, and directing use of an industrial X-ray machine/CT scanner. As the go-to technology resource for our CT scanner, you’ll be working on projects of all shapes and sizes, constantly learning and leveraging your expertise to bring context and understanding to our clients.

But that’s just scraping the surface. In this role, you’ll be working behind-the-scenes to power a technology that’s changing the landscape of industry as it once did in medicine. You’ll be part of a creative team, working alongside technical experts in almost every field – adding your insights to theirs and arming yourself and our clients with the inside scoop on their problems, and then helping them tell the story of what happened and why.

To land this opportunity, you need to be a problem-solving superstar – someone willing to search for the needle in a haystack and challenge the status-quo. To others it may just be a job, but for us, it’s what gets us up in the morning.
