The Rotational Technical Excellence Program (RTEP) is a two-year rotational commitment designed to develop and accelerate the next generation of engineers. Our Systems Engineer will start their rotation in Winona, Minnesota focused on temperature controllers, power switching, and systems, and rotate to Saint Louis, Missouri in the second year. Following completion of the rotational program, the final location for this team member will be St. Louis, Missouri. As you move through the rotation you won't be alone. A team leader, mentor, and ambassador will be by your side to keep you on the road to succeed. PLUS - you'll be building long lasting friendships with other new engineers in the RTEP program. Following the completion of the program you'll take the technical and leadership skills gained from the rotation and transition into a non-rotational role.
