Rockwell Automation's Leadership Development Program (LDP) is a distinctive 2-year program that produces world-class leaders capable of leading teams in a highly successful global company. Program participants rotate through Rockwell Automation in different US geographies, gaining exposure to the organization, working with current leaders, and developing the skills and competencies needed to shape the company's future. We're looking for driven, highly technical and innovative upcoming engineering graduates (December 2020 or May 2021) with a strong thirst for business leadership to join the Customer & Product Applied Engineering track of LDP. This track may be for you if:
You have a passion for optimizing the use of products and technology in the context of a broader system
You have an interest in business and customer-facing roles
You consider yourself a natural advisor or consultant when it comes to technical concepts
You want to leverage your technical skills to influence new business and solve customer problems
You crave new experiences and challenges; you embrace the unfamiliar
You have career aspirations to lead a territory and/or manage people and develop others
You are geographically flexible and willing to relocate multiple times over a 2-year duration
As an associate on the Customer & Product Applied Engineering career track of LDP, you will have diverse rotations lasting approximately 6 months in various geographical locations. You will be engaged in a wide range of learning experiences including classroom training (via Rockwell Automation University), mentoring, career planning, networking, and exposure to Rockwell Automation's global engineering teams and businesses.
You will directly contribute to business-critical initiatives and tasks, which may include roles/experiences in commercial content creation, application development, product development and management, testing, and technical consulting. You will be exposed to leading-edge industrial automation technology that is developed within Rockwell Automation's major business segments in support of The Connected Enterprise. This may include software for automation, programmable automation controllers, intelligent motor control, machine safety, process control, industrial security, cloud computing, industrial Ethernet, motion control, industrial components, variable-frequency drives, and more. You will receive hands-on experience with Rockwell Automation's products, and see first-hand how customers in different industries use our products and technologies.
You will craft a personalized rotation and development plan, in partnership with your manager and technical mentors, to prepare you for post-program placement into a vital role on one of our commercial marketing or application engineering teams, where you will contribute your expertise, deepen your domain expertise, and further your growth as one of Rockwell Automation's high-potential future leaders. And as they say: once an LDP, always an LDP. Upon completion of the program, you will continue to have opportunities to engage with and in the program as part of the LDP alumni family.
