Job Description:

AM Equipment combines innovation and expertise to provide motion solutions of superior quality, value, and safety to keep the world moving. We design and manufacture DC motors and actuation systems for applications such as windshield wipers, automated stair steps, door openers, lifts, and slides. Our home is in beautiful Jefferson, Oregon, but we are a worldwide supplier for diverse industries: everything from mass-transit to robotics. We are 15 minutes from Salem, 30 minutes from the college town of Corvallis, and it's just over an hour to Portland, the beach, or the mountains. AM Equipment prioritizes work-life balance and has been in business since 1953, and is now in a phase of rapid growth and expansion. The Quality Engineer will be a key leader across our engineering and operations teams, and will report directly to the head of Engineering.

Responsibilities include:
--- Maintaining site-wide ISO 9001 compliance by leading and facilitating regular external and internal audits of the quality management system (QMS)
--- Overseeing our inbound and outbound quality control processes
--- Defining and leading implementation of corrective actions and risk mitigation based on trends and audit findings
--- Developing and delivering training materials to continually improve awareness and understanding of the QMS by all employees in the organization
--- Designing and implementing tests of new electro-mechanical products prior to their official launch to reveal potential problems, validate performance, reliability, and ensure quality and conformance to AME and regulatory standards

Minimum Qualifications and Experience:
--- Bachelor's degree in mechanical, electrical, or industrial engineering or closely related field. Basic software / firmware programming knowledge is preferred
--- 3-10+ years of work experience in testing and quality (job and salary will be tailored based on the right candidate's experience)
--- Extensive experience with ISO 9001:2015
--- Excellent problem-solving skills
--- Experienced in the use of laboratory test equipment, including but not limited to: environmental simulation testing, corrosion testing, and lifecycle durability testing
--- Able to design reliability tests with clear null hypothesis and statistical analysis to aid in decision-making
--- Strong technical writing to support management decisions, regulatory approvals, and customer confidence in our products
--- Experience in designing, constructing, troubleshooting, and repairing industrial control systems
--- Experience in working with PLCs and PLC programming
--- Able to influence without authority; you will need to cooperate and bring people together to maintain AME's sterling quality reputation

If you don't meet 100% of our preferred qualifications but think you'd be an excellent fit for our cooperative culture, please apply!

We offer excellent benefits (paid medical/dental, 401(k) plan), plus the opportunity to settle in a highly-affordable housing market (15 minutes from Salem, 5 minutes from I-5).
