    I am working with one of my favorite companies to find an outdoor power equipment prototyper. This person needs to be able to weld, machine, paint, build tooling fixtures, and have a baseline knowledge of hydraulics. With that knowledge, you will fabricate, build, test, and instruct assembler procedures. This role reports directly to the VP of operations. North metro -$31-33/hr. M-F perm role. The privately held company is a smaller one with ~80 employees recently having celebrated its 100-year anniversary and currently undergoing a sizeable building expansion. Hand raisers?

    New role. Again, one of my favorites (I only have 3 favorites). We are working on a very interesting role with a very interesting company in the southwest metro. They are looking for a (mechanical or talented manufacturing) engineer to aid in experiment design and process development for their smaller medical coatings/films company. They have a 20-year history of steady growth and customized solutions for their med device customers. Over the past 5 years, revenue has tripled and a couple of years ago they built their own building in Chaska. I cannot speak highly enough of the CEO and leadership team there. This brilliant "island of misfit toys" is looking to pay ~90k give or take. Hand raisers?

    Hopefully an easier one-Sales Engineer for a medical coatings company in SW metro. Someone who is a very organized people person (customer facing) ideally with an engineering or chemistry education or background. 2 or 4 year or no degree as long as they can do the job. 60-65k with the same company as above. Let the hand raising begin!

    Next up is with Michael Foods (a subsidiary of Fortune 500 Post Holdings) in Chaska. We are looking for a number of skilled maintenance technicians, including electrical and refrigeration. A lot of automation. Pay and shifts will vary. Hand raisers? Cody, the drive would suck for you (again)...sorry my friend,

    City of East Bethel is hiring a maintenance person right now and I'm considering applying. Nice short drive to work (like 5 minutes) and probably has sweet benefits, but I'm really hung up on the plowing snow thing. That would suck. And I like to snowboard.

    Welder/Fabricator M-F 6-230 Fridley. Weld test involved mostly TIG, and a little bit of MIG. Stainless/carbon steel. Your own weld bay with a lot of variety. $25-30/hr.

    Lead Assembler M-F 6-230 M-F Fridley. We are working with a well-established material processing company in the north metro looking for that next great final assembly lead. A very hands-on role overseeing a team of four M-F first-shift assemblers in addition to having your own work bay. The job is interesting and challenging in large part due to the lack of cookie-cutter builds according to the current retiring lead. If you have people and technical skills and enjoy puzzles and model building, this may be worth investigating. Low 30's+/hr.
