Hiring: Engineer / CNC Machine specialist / Plant manager

2019.06.11

Job Location: Higashiosaka, Osaka Prefecture

We need you because:

Our product and customer portfolios have expanded significantly, and in order to keep up with the increased demand, our production team must expand as well.

From a manufacturing standpoint, the Bubble90 is an incredibly complex product to make, and it’s not the only one: DG TAKANO also manufactures industrial gas cocks for the needs of the industry. Those, too, demand both caution and extreme precision. Needless to say, our future projects will not be simple products either. For all these reasons, we are looking for a quick learner with a machining background to join our production team.

Last but not least, we need your specialised insight for new product development. DG TAKANO’s core strength is our ability to create unique niche products by applying design thinking to environmental and societal issues. That means we explore problems from a variety of perspectives without predetermined notions; your engineering and machining perspective will be vital in this process.

If you’re motivated to learn and improve, and you like challenges, then you are just the person we need!

You want to work at DG TAKANO because:

You will have the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the foremost CNC machining experts in all of Japan.

When Mr. Takano started working on the Bubble90, he had almost no engineering knowledge to speak of. After only a year of working together with his father, Mr. Yoshiyuki Takano, he was able to develop what went on to become the world’s best water-saving nozzle and the best Japanese product for that year. It is little surprise then, that Mr. Yoshiyuki’s advice is still highly sought out by other plant owners and operators in the Higashiosaka industrial area.

Mr. Yoshiyuki Takano is also famous for his unique modifications of CNC machines, pushing the boundaries of what kinds of products such machines are able to produce. As a matter of fact, that is, in part, what he and his son did when first developing the Bubble90.

But of course, you will not just be working with machines, you will also be a member of our guild. Your thoughts, suggestions, and especially your ideas, will be welcomed and appreciated. You will take part in decisions concerning company rules and operational procedures, and give advice on new product development. You will also have the opportunity to start your own projects and lead from the front. Naturally, participating in product development means that, upon successful commercialisation, you’ll receive a portion of that product’s profits. In the meantime, our dynamic, performance-based evaluation system has clear advancement criteria and offers the opportunity to significantly boost your base salary each month.

You are:

・experienced in working with CNC machines, and/or have an engineering degree, and/or other similar qualification(s).
・extremely driven and eager to learn.
・receptive to feedback and ready to challenge yourself with machining tasks of high complexity.
・a person with a general aptitude for machining and/or machining tools.

You can stand out if you:

・have a dream related to your field, or a product idea you want to realise.
・have a passion for all things mechanical.
・are interested in robotics.
・enjoy working with machines and find satisfaction in tinkering with or constructing various mechanical devices.
・are handy with mechanical and non-mechanical tools.

What you need in order to apply:

・Resume in English or Japanese, and working proficiency in either of the two
・Cover letter
・Ability to work, full-time and on-site, at our plant in Higashiosaka, Osaka Prefecture

DG TAKANO is an equal opportunity employer. As long as your qualifications hold up, we don't mind who you are or where you come from, even if you were an alien from another planet. All Applications should be submitted to our contact email address.
