Who we are:

The FRICK brand is produced by Johnson Controls, a global diversified technology and industrial leader maintaining global industrial refrigeration focused operations and serving customers in over 150 countries.


FRICK, the leader in industrial refrigeration, is the only manufacturer to offer a full line of equipment for food and beverage applications. We have compressor packages, complete packaged systems, pressure vessels, hygienic air units, evaporators, condensers, heat exchangers and controls.


What you will do:

Our Industrial Refrigeration Food & Beverage Team has an immediate opening for a full-time, direct hire, project-based design engineer. Working together we will work across department lines to identify areas of design improvement, support innovative ideas, and generate solutions based on cost, schedule, and technical merit.


How you will do it:

You will be working with suppliers, sales team, and customers to analyze engineering sketches, specifications, and drawings to resolve customer’s design intent. We use computer assisted design/drafting software, Inventor, to develop and document designs. After the design process, you will prepare engineering release of documents to the production control team including: 2D manufacturing drawings and bills of material


We use other software packages and in-house proprietary calculations to engineer and design our pressure vessels. This will require applying thermodynamics and a fundamental understanding of the refrigeration cycle. This role will maintain existing product lines and support new product development. We will provide support and training for you to be successful in this role.

During your introductory period, you will be paired with a suitable onboarding partner/mentor to help provide advice and guidance as you adjust to the workplace.



As a part of our team, we can offer a fantastic benefits package including a completive salary, health benefits (Medical, dental, vision), a 401(k) with company match, and competitive vacation /holiday time.


Work Location

We understand the preference to have a more flexible working environment working either remote or on site. With this, we require our personnel to be local to our manufacturing facility and expect during the initial onboarding process (1-2 months) to work on-site. After the onboarding period, we permit our employees to embrace their preference to be on-site or remote, but they must be available for on-site visits as needed to support manufacturing.

What we look for:


  • 3D solids design experience (e.g., Inventor, Creo, Solidworks, Fusion 360 or similar).  

  • Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Mechanical Engineering from an ABET accredited institution.

  • Experience creating 2D drawings from 3D models; including placing views, adding dimensions, and fully annotating to meet industry standard conventions.  

  • Fluent with Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook or similar.  

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills are essential. 

  • Ability to work independently.
  • Where legally permissible, if hired, candidate is required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 no later than his/her start date, unless candidate has a valid medical condition or sincerely held religious belief precluding, he/she from receiving the vaccine. 


  • Wiorking knowledge of thermodynamics and the refrigeration cycle.

  • Experience sizing and selecting components for refrigeration applications.

  • Microsoft TEAMS experience.

  • Desire to work on an international team.  

  • Programming experience (e.g., Excel VBA,, C#, Access, or similar)
