Electrical Engineer at Graco

Electrical Engineers at Graco design and develop hardware and software applications for existing and newly developed products.

“Electrical engineers at Graco are electrical engineers. We aren't hardware engineers or software engineers or system engineers. At Graco you have the opportunity to be any or all of these. You are able to work on embedded hardware, embedded software, web-based software, system design, test systems; you name it. Each and every facet is available to you. Electrical engineers also work closely with mechanical engineers and designers to make sure everything in the complex machine being designed works together. When the design is done, Graco's local manufacturing makes implementation easy. The projects are hands-on and everyone brings new knowledge. I love my job at Graco. There is rarely monotony and I'm excited what each day will bring.”
