Completing college and entering the workforce can be an exciting process. As you finish your studies, consider taking the first step in your career by applying for a position with Gore, a global enterprise focused on improving lives.

Who We’re Looking For

Each year, we seek students in their final year of school for a select number of engineering-, manufacturing operations- and supply chain-focused positions. We partner with colleges across the U.S. to interview selected applicants, and also welcome upcoming graduates from non-partner schools to apply.

Gore requires all applicants to be eligible to work within the U.S. on a continuing basis and will not consider candidates for employment who currently are on a Visa or require Visa sponsorship, unless otherwise noted on the position description. This includes B.S. or M.S. new graduate applicants.

Because Gore is a technology-oriented manufacturer, our opportunities for upcoming graduates are nearly all focused on engineering and manufacturing operations.

  • For engineering positions, Gore is primarily seeking upcoming grads with B.S. and/or M.S. degrees in areas such as aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, materials science, bioengineering/biomedical engineering and electrical engineering.
  • For manufacturing operations positions, Gore is seeking upcoming grads with B.S. and/or M.S. degrees such as industrial engineering, supply chain and operations or engineering management.

PhD or Post-Doctoral Candidates

We hire a select number of PhD and post-doctoral candidates each year for science/technology and product manager positions. We look for candidates with degrees such as bioengineering/biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, statistics and materials science.

Positions requiring a PhD, with or without prior industry work experience required, are posted on our website as opportunities become available. The best way to find these opportunities is to search our open positions.

Typical Opportunities

In product development, activities may include planning and designing products, equipment, and product applications; prototype installation and operation, and recording and analyzing data gathered from prototype testing; and working with customers to meet end user needs with design solutions and product innovations. Additionally, you may be involved in identifying potential markets and develop products while continuously improving existing ones.

As a process engineer, you will work on small teams on process improvement and modification, expansion of process capabilities, and further enhancement of ePTFE technology while ensuring a safe and cost-effective work environment. You will contribute to the installation, operation, maintenance, and upgrade of production and testing equipment, equipment layout and workflow.

The design of processing equipment is a key capability at Gore due to the unique and proprietary nature of our products. As a mechanical design engineer, you will actively participate in the design, fabrication, assembly, installation and support of a wide variety of equipment used to manufacture a broad range of products. Typical responsibilities also include project management, development of specifications, equipment qualification and project documentation.

Here, you will take on projects in constraint management, process capability, facilities planning or team development. You will also interact with manufacturing, engineering and business teams to increase productivity and optimize the flow of product and information throughout our enterprise.

As an automation controls engineer, you can expect to actively participate in the design, installation and support of a wide variety of unique manufacturing machines and processes, as well as facilities infrastructure projects. Typical responsibilities include the selection of control system hardware, instrumentation, machine programming (PLC, Drives, Robotics, etc.), operator interface development (HMI), coordinated motion control (servos, AC and DC drives, hydraulics and pneumatics), project management, specification development, schematic development, machine documentation and data acquisition.

As a quality engineer, you will evaluate fitness for use of materials, designs, processes, tests and products (from technology development through manufacturing). Some of your responsibilities include designing, executing and analyzing experiments as well as understanding device use, evaluating and validating components and materials, and developing material and product specifications. Throughout the life cycle of the product, you will work with engineers, product and clinical specialists, manufacturing, and other teams, and will have direct impact on the quality of our existing products as well as on next-generation products during design and development.

Gore's manufacturing operations include such functions as planning, procurement, manufacturing leadership, logistics, quality assurance, manufacturing systems/data management support, lean manufacturing and rotational operations programs that cover all of these facets of operations. You will have an opportunity to learn business, divisional and functional competencies emphasizing supply chain operations.
