NCC Automated Systems has an opportunity in our core business Sales and Applications group for an Applications Engineer. We are looking for an experienced, quick, driven individual with a technical background in the material handling industry to collaborate with our sales team to develop and deliver winning proposals for conveyance, equipment and packing systems, primarily to customers that manufacture food products.

If you enjoy working with a team people to overcome challenges and win then you will enjoy working at NCC. We are looking for smart people with matching values to become part of the team. We are growing and need more great people who want to work hard to build something worthy that will stand the test of time.

NCC is a 34-year-old company that provides integrated solutions for food and consumer products manufacturers. Most of the core business at NCC focuses on Turnkey Systems consisting of pre-engineered and/or customized conveyor solutions with controls and installation services.  We also design and build complete packaging lines, develop custom conveyance solutions, and provide engineering services.  We are vertically integrated with manufacturing capabilities, welding, control panel building, wiring, and a modern, clean facility designed for full FAT’s.  This is a strong and stable business with steady calculated growth.

We are a unique company with an extremely strong culture and sense of ownership. The following 5 values drive all of us every day in all our decisions and actions.

 

  1. It takes a Village – we are here for each other
  2. We are Warriors – we fight until we make it happen
  3. Life is Short – we choose to have a positive attitude and have fun
  4. We are Brave – we try new things and strive to be great
  5. OwnIt – we embrace responsibility because we are all owners

 

People that fit those core values love working at NCC (recently selected as one of The Philadelphia Inquirers Top Businesses to work) and the culture is truly unmatched. 

We are also an Employee Owned Company. What does that mean?  It means that employees accumulate shares in the company over time in a program called an ESOP.  Employees accumulate shares in the company over time. When e company does well and the share go up, the employees share in that reward. The best part of being an ESOP is that it drives an Ownership Culture, as every employee has a long-term stake in the outcome. Visit nceo.org to learn more about ESOPs.

To help support the Ownership Culture, we have also developed a completely financially transparent company.  Every single person in the company has a number and a visible contribution to our profitability and reports on it weekly.  Through this program, employees can see how we are doing on both a short-term basis (where we share in the gains over our plan quarterly) and long term through the ESOP.  Visit greatgame.com to learn more. 

This is a salary position with benefits, health insurance, paid vacation, ESOP, bonus program, and 401K.
