Position: Electrical Engineer - System Design Engineer | Special Projects

Plymouth, MI


Ready to work on Custom Manufacturing and Assembly Solutions that will shape the future of automation?

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.

This role:  Be part of our new multi-disciplined engineering team that will work on custom projects that will revolutionize large-scale assembly line design.  Together you will bring customer concepts from the top floor to the plant floor with the newest technology and sustainability. You will participate in team and customer meetings to identify requirements, specs, and timelines and be involved in every element of the project from start to finish.  Your role will be to design, develop, test and implement complex automated manufacturing systems.  A good part of your role will be to create hardware and electrical designs with AutoCAD Electrical.  At times you will write PLC code (Rockwell) from scratch or from an existing platform.  Review mechanical solution designs to ensure feasibility from an electrical standpoint and ensure that all plans comply with electrical safety requirements. Relocation assistance is available.

What we are looking for:

  • BSEE or in a related discipline or equivalent in experience
  • 10+ years of electrical design experience especially with production and automation systems
  • Plant floor experience required (controls production or maintenance support)
  • Several years of PLC programming experience (Rockwell and/or Siemens)

  • Strong hardware design skills such as panel layout/industrial controls, preferably AutoCAD Electrical
  • Motion controls experience with different types of servo drives, and VFDs
  • Solid MS Office skills
  • Travel up to 20% domestically and not long term

  • Proven team player with the ability to communicate effectively with customers, vendors, upper management, and staff
  • Visa sponsorship is not available for this role



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!!
