Your Mission, Should You Choose to Accept:

  • Basic computer skills to keep up with the digital side of manufacturing.
  • The strength to lift up to 40 pounds (occasionally) and the agility to navigate the dynamic landscape of a manufacturing production floor.
  • A team-oriented mindset, armed with effective communication skills, ready to collaborate, innovate, and excel.


What You Will Be Doing:

  • Become skilled at operating CNC machinery, playing a critical role in assembling the components that define security.
  • Dive into the world of assembly and secondary machining, where precision meets efficiency.
  • Collaborate with your peers and supervisor to synchronize production schedules and set new standards of productivity and efficiency.
  • Champion quality and punctuality, pushing the boundaries to exceed customer expectations.
  • Engage in team strategizing to enhance performance, tackle challenges, and elevate workplace safety and organization.
  • Rise to meet (and surpass) performance benchmarks.
  • Take advantage of opportunities for overtime, contributing to the team's success during peak production periods.
  • Uphold our company's standards, policies, and procedures, becoming an ambassador for our culture of excellence.
