Position: Electrical Engineer | Controls Engineer

Plymouth, MI


Multiple Openings - Hybrid Schedule

Are you ready to work on custom solutions that no one else has designed and built? 

We pair some of the finest engineers with the latest technology and global leaders in Aerospace, Defense, Automotive, Heavy Equipment, Electric Transportation, Solar, and other exciting industries.

Everything we do is project-based. You won’t do the same thing every day.

We are expanding our controls team in response to new projects and customers. Recent projects include custom helicopter test systems, jet engine assembly lines, battery-free AGVs, leading-edge factory software and other first-of-its-kind solutions.  You will be involved in every element of the project from start to finish. 

Your day-to-day:  As a key member of our engineering team you will provide “cradle to grave” technical support for the design, development, testing, and implementation of automated manufacturing and test systems. You will program Rockwell and/or Siemens PLCs from scratch as well as debug/enhance from existing platforms. Your input will be key as you participate in team and customer meetings to identify requirements, specs, and timelines to meet or exceed expectations.  In addition to per diem, additional compensation and perks provided with projects that require extensive travel and extended hours.  Relocation assistance available.

What we are looking for:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering, related discipline or equivalent in experience
  • Several years of PLC programming experience (Rockwell and/or Siemens) from scratch, emphasis on troubleshooting
  • Experience with automation systems used for manufacturing (i.e., PLCs, HMIs, Servo Motors, and Communication Networks)
  • Solid understanding of electrical schematics and drawings
  • Hardware design skills such as panel layout and industrial controls
  • Willingness to travel domestically and internationally – level of travel will vary by position, business unit and project
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Proven team player with the ability to communicate effectively with customers, vendors, upper management, and staff
  • Due to the nature of work performed within our facilities, qualified applicants must be legally authorized for employment in the U. S. and will not require employer-sponsored work authorization




What I like most about working at RedViking are the problem solving solutions we develop for our customers. It goes beyond selling a product. It’s forming a collaborative partnership with our customers that enables them to be successful and keeps them coming back to RedViking with new challenges for us to help them solve.

First of all, it’s the people. Some of the smartest engineers I have ever worked with are here. But more than that, we all are trying to do our best and be better every day. Everyone is working to improve themselves and the company and that creates a synergy of improvement that you just don't see most places.

Second, I truly feel empowered and supported by management. They are always striving to create an environment where the staff can learn and grow. They are always looking to do what they can to make this a welcoming, friendly, inclusive, supportive environment for professional and personal growth.

And last but not least, it’s the work! I love being a part of creating the next generation of machinery. From AGVs to robots we do some very cool stuff and that makes coming to work fun. One day you’re assembling aircraft engines and the next day you’re working on an AGV that carries a garbage truck. If you think that’s cool, then you understand why I love being a Viking!!
