RedViking is looking for a Robotics Engineer (Fanuc) with broad technical knowledge and expertise to help our engineers grow more capable with robotic automation.  You will help provide project-based, “Cradle to Grave” design, development, testing, and implementation of robots in an automated manufacturing environment. You will work closely with our project team to properly integrate a robot into overall custom, project design and help our Fortune 500 customers in automotive, aerospace, commercial and other markets surpass goals related to the assembly and testing of their products. We are looking for a problem solver to help us innovate new ways to operate factories and production lines.

Your Impact: You will work closely with our engineering manager and chief engineer to provide technical expertise to the engineering team to be sure a robot is properly integrated into overall project design while being responsible for performance, workload and adherence to budget, timeline and quality.  Key responsibilities include sizing robots for payload and reach, performing reach and timing studies, programming and troubleshooting robots, developing integrated vision systems to be used with the robot, creating simulations of the robot cells, configuring master/slave robots using industrial networks such as Ethernet IP or ProfiNet and show compliance with RIA 15.06 robotic safety standards.  You will mentor and teach other engineers to help grow our overall robot capabilities

  • 3-5 years’ minimum experience in high technology or advanced technical engineering expertise
  • Experience with Fanuc or Kawasaki robots (Fanuc preferred)
  • Engineering expertise in sizing robots for payload and reach, performing reach and timing studies, programming and troubleshooting robots, developing integrated vision systems to be used with the robot, creating simulations of the robot cells, configuring master/slave robots using industrial networks such as Ethernet IP or ProfiNet and have knowledge and experience with RIA 15.06 robotic safety standards
  • Ability and willingness to mentor, teach and develop other engineers’ robot capabilities 
  • Some manufacturing plant floor experience is required

  • 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!!
