Ready to join us? Good thing, we are looking for a great mechanical or robotic engineer – R&D robotic machining application!

AV&R is a Quebec engineering company specializing in robotics that is recognized worldwide and that works in the fields of aerospace, energy and orthopedics.


As part of a multidisciplinary team, you will have to develop robotic solutions for specific machining needs.
On a daily basis, you will be asked to:

  1. Understand customer needs
  2. Identify existing tools and those to be developed to meet customer needs
  3. Implement and configure existing tools
  4. Innovate by developing tools for robotic finishing solutions
  5. Test and industrialize newly developed processes
  6. Document your work and technical results

In addition, you will have to apply and promote the project processes, R&D and quality system. To achieve this, you will need to work with other project team members.

Job Type: full-time, permanent
Deadline for submission applications: as soon as possible
Main place of work: Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville
