Are you self-motivated, enthusiastic and team-oriented? Do you possess machining experience or interest? Do accountable, responsible and strong work ethic describe you perfectly? If so, please contact us. Zi Machine is looking for people like you.  
 Zi Machine's self-directed, three-person work teams on the shop floor are comprised of a programmer/machinist team lead, a set-up person and an apprentice trainee. This system encourages mentoring, the passing on of tribal knowledge, team work, individual responsibility, 360-degree evaluation and real-time feedback for the quality and effort that everyone puts forth.

We are a mid-size company so we can answer your needs for growth, opportunity, skill development and fast results. We are financially sound and pay competitive rates for the right talent.

Current Job Postings
CNC Programmer/Team Leader
You are a senior journeyman machinist with 5+ years solid off-line programming experience using Surfcam, Solidworks or Mastercam. You can look at a job and define the process sequence, conduct your team meeting, delegate responsibilities effectively and follow up so that the job is done on time and in-spec. You can quickly design tooling to meet the appropriate production requirements. You make your program edits and changes off-line and generate necessary material/tooling BOMs. You work without micro-management, are accountable for your successes and learn from your mistakes. You arrive promptly for work and are a big presence in our facility.  

Set-up Person
You have solid training and experience operating CNC mills, lathes or horizontals. You are careful but confident and can set up workholding, consumable tooling/tool holders and set offsets. You can take direction from the lead but perform the task with independence. You delegate jobs effectively to the team apprentice and have the rare ability to turn the task into a learning experience. You are the glue that holds the team together, and we see that. We will invest in your education, skill development and professional growth.
