As a leading worldwide provider of navigation devices and wearable technology, our focus is on developing, designing and supporting superior products. Our advanced technology promotes performance, safety and ease of use in every market we serve. That makes us an engineering and technology company with a keen focus on recruiting talent in those fields. But the same vertical integration business model that keeps all design and manufacturing processes in-house also gives us the incentive to hire top performers from different backgrounds, including operations, finance and accounting, information technology, sales, marketing and communications.
Now seeking: Number crunchers. In finance and accounting, we crunch the numbers to collect and pay the bills. Some of us plan for the future; others account for the here and now. We’re looking for associates who like to report, calculate, analyze and push our (calculator) buttons to find out how to improve our finances and increase profits. If you get a kick out of creating elaborate spreadsheets, mathematical equations and can type on a 10-key faster than a computer, then let’s swap numbers.
