Engineering jobs in the Architectural Products Group

Trial and error, trial and error, so often happens when engineering products and manufacturing processes for products that stand at the leading cusp. To meet the challenges in unknown territories, an engineer cannot afford to limit his own technical talents. Boundless desire to discover, to move ahead is part and parcel of it. Moving forward to meet the challenge in new areas, never fearing a mistake. The leading edge of YKK AP’s monozukuri offers many possibilities for meeting and overcoming challenges. That means our engineers can earn the satisfaction of actually making or helping to make a leading-edge product.
