Description

Are we a match?

From day one, employees are made to feel valued as part of the ITC team. With respect for diverse perspectives, experiences, and talent, we’re proud to both develop from within and welcome newcomers, creating a dynamic group of individuals who expand our viewpoints. We encourage growth and value input from every team member. Entrepreneurial spirit thrives here, bringing innovations and unmatched energy to all we do. Together, we’re greater than the sum of our parts.


This isn’t the same Engineering job that you’re looking at with other companies. Here is where ITC differs:

  • ITC develops and manufactures innovative products from the GROUND UP.
  • We develop a wide range of products from relatively simple LED lighting to microprocessor controlled products that require engineers to be involved with hardware AND software.
  • At ITC, you will enjoy a fun, collaborative environment with state-of-the-art development tools. We aren't afraid to invest in the equipment you need.
  • Our engineers are rewarded for contributing to company patents.
  • If you like a little play mingled in with all of that innovating, we have fun Engineering Team events outside of work, too!
  • We don’t just say we offer a competitive benefits package – we actually do! Our 100% vested company 401k match and reduced health insurance contribution after 5 years create some real financial benefits.
  • We are into helping YOU succeed with training, tuition reimbursement, and your own development plan.

You’re still looking at the posting…great! Let’s dive into some perks that ITC provides (they’re pretty great if we do say so ourselves!) and then explore the nitty gritty.
