EEA Basic System Assessment Engineer

Basic System Assessment EngineerHuntsville, AL

You see things that others don't

You notice small but very important things that others don't even notice; you never overlook the "small stuff" because, as you know, it all adds up to the best finished product. You "own" every project you work on because you bring your insights, precision, observations and unending quest for "the best"...and you don't rest until you get it. You will make sure every "I" is dotted and every "T"s crossed. It's all about accuracy with your work. Employees like you make our organization special and successful. If these words resonate with you, we would like to speak with you.
