Join a team recognized for leadership, innovation and diversity

The future is what you make it. When you join Honeywell, you become a member of our global team of thinkers, innovators, dreamers and doers who make the things that make the future.

That means changing the way we fly, fueling jets in an eco-friendly way, keeping buildings smart and safe and even making it possible to breathe on Mars. Working at Honeywell isn’t just about developing cool things. That’s why all of our employees enjoy access to dynamic career opportunities across different fields and industries. Are you ready to help us make the future?

Be part of the manufacturing engineering team responsible for transforming Honeywell’s Fire Systems operations.  As a manufacturing engineer overseeing factory digitization and automation, you’ll be leading Honeywell’s IoT transformation.  Tasks include justifying, developing and deploying digital factory processes, data flows, and robotics.  Hands-on familiarity with manufacturing execution systems (MES) and automation is a plus.  This role requires strong project-management skills and a record of implementing manufacturing improvements on-time and on-budget.  

Key Responsibilities

  • Digital Factory
    • Lead implementation of manufacturing execution systems (i.e. Critical Manufacturing) in the electronics assembly factory (including PC board assembly, test, and final assembly).
    • Work with cross functional team to develop and manage the MES implementation schedule.  Create timed roll-out plan across the factory.
    • Develop data collection, analysis, and visualization plan for individual applications.  Work with factory cell work leaders to design digital systems that maximize productivity. 
    • Work with IT to develop the MES system architecture that best supports the factory.
