this role will require travel – we have two plants (Richmond VA and Las Vegas NV) with the intention to expand and the Process Engineering role comes with the expectation that the team will rotate through visits to each plant. We’d be looking for quarterly trips with occasional bursts of activity to support a launch. For instance two of our process engineers are currently swapping weeks onsite in Las Vegas to support a major launch there. This happens over a four to six week period roughly once per year.
