Salary Range: $70,000+, dependent on experience

Products we commonly work with that you should be familiar with (at least some of them!):

  • PLCs (Rockwell/Allen-Bradley, Siemens, Beckhoff, Automation Direct, etc.) & other automation
  • controllers (AMX, Crestron, Opto22, etc.)
  • Show Control (Alcorn McBride, Medialon, Anitech MediaPro, QLab, etc.)
  • Audio Systems (QSC/Q-Sys, NION, etc.)
  • Video Systems (Alcorn McBride, 7th Sense, BrightSign, etc.)
  • Industrial Enclosures
  • LOTS of other things (innovation and figuring stuff out is part of the job)

Soft Skills we are looking for:

  • Grit/Tenacity – must be willing to dig into a job and own it to completion. You will be supported, but you must be able to take the initiative and guide things forward without constant supervision.
  • Integrity – this one’s a must. If you cut corners, cheat or steal, we’re not interested in working with you. Our customers trust us with very valuable assets and their faith we’ll deliver safe, reliable systems and that’s what we do.
  • Safety – you have to protect yourself, your colleagues and our clients. Engineers (regardless of whether they are degreed or not) have a moral duty to protect the users of their systems and to push back on anything that might be hazardous to them and stand firm when needed (to the point of refusing to do the work if necessary).
  • Thirst for Knowledge – you don’t necessarily have to have a degree to work with us; experience can be a substitute, and the constant desire to keep up with technology, tools and industry is a definite plus.
  • Flexibility – our industry is not always a 9-5 kind of place. We frequently have to support projects in the wee hours of morning or urgent repairs over a weekend, holiday, birthday, etc. That DOESN’T mean that we always do that, or that we don’t find work-life synergy. It just means having some flexibility and not expecting a 9-5 role will make for a much better fit long-term.
  • We’re looking for folks who enjoy what they do and want to find a harmonious way of balancing life and work that works for them and for us.
  • IDEA – we are a majority women-owned company, and we actively seek to hire for diversity, inclusion and accessibility, because we are better when we represent the amazing types of talent that are out there. We believe in equity and we 100% support people of all colors, races, genders, abilities, marital status, family status, religion, orientations and we don’t tolerate discrimination, sexism, racism or any other form of bigotry at all (in clients or in employees). (Legalese version: “The Florida Civil Rights Act, as well as certain federal laws, protect employees from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, pregnancy, national origin, age, disability, or marital status.”). We’re family friendly and you might see team kids around the office from time to time.

Legal Requirements

Must be able to work in the United States.
Must be eligible to apply for a passport for international travel (or already have one).

Physical Requirements

You’ll definitely be required to sit or stand for extended periods of time. Will also be required to bend,
twist, reach, push, pull, and operate office machinery and tools. Must be able to lift up to fifty pounds
consistently. This person must be physically able to travel to job locations around the world (sometimes
they’re local, sometimes they’re not!).

How to Apply

Send your resume, cover letter, links to work examples (don’t break any NDAs!), favorite recipes or jokes,
etc. to workwithus@alchemycontrols.com. Let us know what role you’re thinking about (just in case it’s
unclear) and if you’re not fitting into one of these roles but you have something else you think you can
bring to the team, let us know that too.
