Novecare’s vision is to leverage Digital Technologies to improve site competitiveness, drive OEE and cycle time improvements, and engage & motivate our employees. We are working to bring the right information to the right people at the right time, and transform Pasadena into Novecare’s ‘site of the future’. This journey started earlier in 2019, and we are looking for a process engineer to catalyze our efforts and continue Pasadena’s Digital Transformation.
Specifically, you will work with the digital team onsite to leverage innovative, digital technologies such as Advanced Analytics, Digital Ways of Working, and Advanced Process Control to drive improvements of the site’s alkoxylation processes.

You will use this information to work with the plant technical and operations teams to develop solutions and lead projects that improve site OEE and increase capacity.
