Position: DC Engineers

Location: Washington

Company:

This is a bit of an unusual position for us. We are involved in a large DC build for a client and were recently asked if we knew of anyone to handle on-site DC engineering around facilities and IT management. These positions are full-time contract-to-hire and are located in Wenatchee, Washington…which is roughly 2 hours east of Seattle in what is loosely called, “the Palm Springs of Washington”.

Needless to say there are not a lot of DC engineers in Wenatchee unless they work for the other large DC’s being built on the Bonneville grid, so these roles do not offer relocation, travel allowance nor support visa’s

Our req is below….and, as always, please apply directly to: http://www.covestic.com/careers.html
