Growing specialty coatings company with family atmosphere is adding a Senior Chemist to the Development team.  If you enjoy being able to formulate powder coatings in a fast-paced customer focused team, this is the place for you!  NO red tape here!!

This person will have a voice in where to go in NPD, lead and drive NPD, hands on at the bench, talking with customers, etc.  They have weekly meetings with the Owners, President, and other chemists who’ve been handling this R&D work (in other locations), Engineering, Operations, Sales and Marketing, etc.  This Chemist will be expected to actively participate in developing strategy, making decisions about the kinds of new products, how products are manufactured, and be willing to speak their mind.  Being the size of the company is small, they move quicker and decisions are made just as fast.  Customers are the top priority, and they maintain a 24-hour Customer Service line.  They are proud to be able to turn around orders in 10 days or less.

Innovative, creative, driven, record of accomplishment - how many products have you commercialized? - how have you met a customer’s need when you didn’t have a product ready to meet their needs? - what have you created that was different but successful?

Each employee has a voice that counts.  It’s ok to be outspoken, and they are expected to use it (their voice).  We can work around non-competes, and we can tailor the position based on what this person brings and or what this person needs.  There’s no red tape here, and we are results oriented.  Texas is a great place to live, there’s no State Income tax.  Titles aren’t a big thing with us, anyway this person will still be hands on in the lab.  “I want to hire someone who has passion, who can take us 10-20 years down the road.”
