  • 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. - Jeff DeClue - Sales Manager of Dynamic Test Systems
  • 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!!
