- Actively engage in the continuous improvement of Engineering productivity practice with a focus on speed, quality, and innovation.
- Work as part of a self-directed team where you determine your tasks in coordination with co-workers, rather than waiting for work to be assigned to you.
- Find opportunities for improvement by challenging the status quo and suggesting alternative and creative solutions.
What you bring to the role:
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills, and interpersonal skills.
- Proven problem-solving skills in a dynamic, collaborative and agile work environment.
