At I²R, we work daily to improve our customer’s manufacturing capabilities. Our customer are extremely diverse and spread all over North America (and a few internationally). Our customers make roofing shingles, process poultry and beef, distill water, bottle apple juice, roast coffee, and fry potato chips.
Customers call us when they want to make more products, faster and better than before. They call us when the line is down and no one knows why. They call us when they have a mountain of live data, but can’t make heads or tails of it all. 
You will be working with small teams of other engineers to get acclimated to our industry and its unique tools. We need someone who loves solving difficult problems, relatively short project cycles, and seeing real life results. We need someone who dives head first into new programming environments and new problems. We also need someone who doesn’t mind getting their hands (and clothes) dirty. We need someone to take personal ownership of a project and its success.
You are someone who is programming language agnostic, but have a few in your toolbox. You might have taken a few electrical engineering classes in college or played around with a hobby microcontroller. You’re no stranger to SQL databases, and can whip up a script to make a task a bit easier. You might have some experience with a multimeter and know the difference between digital and analog.
Our work can often be challenging and demanding. You will often be involved in several projects from beginning to end, all at the same time. When things aren’t working, our customers are losing money. 
Primary responsibilities:
  • Develop and implement process logic in new and existing systems
  • Add to and modify operator interfaces (this typically involves light programming/scripting)
  • Assist sales team with quote creation and scope definition
  • Create SQL stored procedures and manipulate database tables
  • Travel to customer site to implement
Core competencies:
  • Ability and eagerness to learn new skills and tools
  • Logical and common sense thinker
  • Can work through high stress situations
  • Microsoft SQL skills are highly desired, but experience in any SQL background is acceptable
  • Computer science or engineering background
  • Ready to travel 40% (may include weekends)
Important: Many of our customers have limited to no VPN access. You will need to be willing to travel up to 40%. Often we have several weeks of development at our office and a few weeks of on-site time with our customers to implement.
Location: The majority of our company is located in Plano, Texas. We are slowly growing accustomed to remote workers. If you have prior experience at working at home, please provide references or evidence of your ability to do so well.
I²R offers competitive salaries and benefits, including health/dental, and flexible vacation. We’re a small company with great consideration for individual needs. Come join our family!
We are looking to hire immediately, so please do not hesitate to contact us today.
