Boeing to hire engineers for Oklahoma City design center

Boeing is now hiring engineers to staff a new engineering design center in Oklahoma City, the company said today.

The engineers will produce upgrades for the C-130 Hercules and B-1 Lancer aircraft.

The programs are transitioning from Long Beach, Calif., to Oklahoma City next month. Boeing will shift 550 jobs to Oklahoma City by the end of 2012. The move will create 150 open positions this year.

“Hiring new and diverse talent for the new engineering design center is important because of what they bring to the work force — namely, exposure to new ideas,” Boeing Oklahoma City site director Mike Emmelhainz said in a statement.

The jobs are listed on Boeing’s website. They include positions in software, structural, design and analysis, wire design and install and systems engineering. Jobs are also available in business planning and in supply chain.
