If you aspire to work in a dynamic environment and possess the motivation to convert new ideas into practice, this may be the opportunity you've been looking for.

Have you considered what it may be like to work at Pratt & Whitney?

ACE, Achieving Competitive Excellence, is the Pratt & Whitney operating system. It focuses on the drivers of competitive excellence - our people and our work processes. Our leadership and empowered employees work together to implement ACE practices in all of our activities across every UTC business to benefit our customers and share owners. As a member of the Hot Section Module Center team, you will be a key member of a dynamic team responsible for delivering aerospace components and assemblies to our military and commercial customers around the globe. The Module Center delivers hardware for both new engine assembly and aftermarket new spare parts.

As a leader of Continuous Improvement reporting directly to the Module Center General Manager, you will be responsible for driving a culture of continuous improvement and connecting all employees with experiences to make our business better.

As a Module Center ACE Continuous Improvement Leader, you will work closely with individuals and teams throughout the organization to lead problem solving and continuous improvement projects.

The Hot Section Module Center (HSMC) is comprised of multiple factory sites (which will require periodic travel) and decentralized continuous improvement leaders (which will require frequent coordination and alignment).
