Aftermarket Performance EXpress (APEX) located in the San Francisco East Bay is a fast growing company that produces high performance automotive wheels and wheel accessories, in addition to distributing a range of other performance products. Our popular products are known for their performance, quality, value, and superior fitment, but our real success comes from our team of hard working, highly motivated staff members. Our staff of enthusiasts are technical experts that know what customers need, and offer personalized, honest, and detailed product recommendations based on experience, research, and testing. We work everyday to improve our product’s features and expand our product lines. Although we’ve been in the parts business since 2007, our culture, environment, and growth rate feel more like that of a tech startup.
APEX is looking for an educated and experienced engineer to help manage the development of new wheels and other performance products, in addition to coordinating with manufacturers for their production. This position will take ownership of all relavent projects, and will earn bonus pay based on successful project completion. Working with the owner and other engineers, you’ll use your project management experience to keep all projects moving forward simultaneously. Besides your education, you’ll bring your prior industry experience, which will allow you to confidently get product ideas from paper to finished goods with minimal training. Communicating with domestic and overseas manufacturers is something you already have experience with, and you know how to get them to perform and keep them accountable. You’ll be responsible for calculating all reorder quantities based on industry best practices and reports/calculators you create. Purchasing will be an important part of your responsibility until you’ve helped systemize the process and we add a dedicated member to the team for that role. As we grow you’ll oversee engineering assistants and coordinate with the purchasing, sales, and marketing departments to develop product, and keep product flowing. You’ll help facilitate the collection of fitment data through research, which you’ll use to train staff and create educational content for blog articles. Your comfort and familiarity in this role will allow us to focus on quickly training you on relevant topics instead of industry basics. Your past customer interaction experience will make communicating complex technical topics and troubleshooting product issues with new and existing customers smooth, as you’ll embody our philosophy of superior customer service from all departments.
