Electroimpact – Why Work For Us?

Electroimpact is a highly experienced provider of factory automation and tooling solutions. Our forte is the integration of automation and tooling into synergistic production solutions. We have a full-time staff of hands-on design engineers which is second to none in the industry. This allows for us to have an attention to detail which our competitors simply don't have the depth of talent to match, and also enables us to resolve issues very quickly for our customers as they arise. Furthermore we are situated on a campus which includes multiple very large high-bay construction and buyoff facilities featuring cranes with up to 40 metric ton lifting capacity, as well as several smaller buildings. This allows us the flexibility of taking-on multiple very large projects at one time.

This unique approach has resulted in Electroimpact growing to become the largest integrator of aircraft assembly lines in the world. Our customer base includes Airbus, Boeing, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Fuji Heavy Industries, Spirit Aerospace, Vought, Northrop-Grumman, Israeli Aircraft Industries, Xi’an Aircraft of China, Bombardier, and Embraer among others. Electroimpact is as well-versed in smaller product solutions as we are in some of the largest tooling jobs in the world.

Electroimpact’s mission is to be the premier supplier of automated equipment to the worldwide aircraft industry. To do this, we will hire the best people and remove all barriers which would prevent them from doing the best job they can.

Electroimpact is an engineer-driven company. We are able to maintain continuity throughout the project process because the same engineer is involved in every stage of the project, from initial planning and development, to final assembly, tooling setting and buyoff. The engineer that designs the tool or machine also is responsible for detailed drawings, coordinating manufacturing, assembly, and any tooling setting or machine alignment. This minimizes the disconnects that happen at a typical company with an engineer, drafter, manufacturer, and assembler.

Electroimpact is a company of over 620 professionals dedicated to the design and manufacture of state-of-the-art aircraft assembly equipment. The company is extremely proud of the fact that over 500 of our employees have engineering degrees.

Electroimpact was founded in June of 1986 by Peter Zieve, PHD. Located in the shadow of the Boeing Corporation's Everett Plant, Electroimpact started its life primarily as a supplier of machine tools to Boeing. But over the years Electroimpact has gradually expanded its business overseas to act as a major supplier for other major aerospace companies such as Airbus, and Israeli Aircraft Industries.

Electroimpact's main campus, and head office is located in Mukilteo, Washington USA. However, to better serve our customers, Electroimpact has established a large satellite office in the UK with over 100 engineers and has full time staff in many other countries where we have sold equipment to better support our customer base."

Mission Statement

Electroimpact has a nearly flat business structure and as a result demands and supports individual integrity and effort. This ethics and integrity policy will be reflected in our business practices at all levels. It is Electroimpact’s policy that kickbacks and bribes are not consistent with our Code of Business Ethics and will not be tolerated. Employees should not attempt to pay off customer representatives nor should they agree to pay customer representatives for their business.

Community Involvement

Electroimpact is very proud to have had the privilege of sponsoring numerous sporting teams, and engineering clubs over the years. This is a continuing tradition of philanthropy that reflects the company's goal of consistently being a good citizen in all of the communities that we serve.

    Autonomy, Design Experience, Travel, Project Management Experience


    Sometimes too much freedom is given to newer engineers. You've got to be smart to survive the initial couple years. Tough learning curve.

    Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mukilteo, WA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Electroimpact (Mukilteo, WA) in January 2017.


    Applied online and was given a test. Completed the online test (simple engineering basics) and was given an interview date. Came in to find that there were 7 of us being interviewed. went through 3 interviewers, the second being a technical interview. The first and last one were resume question interviews. At one point I was told my masters degree in mechanical engineering "is not valued at electroimpact and we do not usually hire masters students". At that point I was less than pleased, apparently being over qualified is a thing. They ended up offering a laughably low salary which I then turned down.

    Interview Questions

    • need to know shear in pins, FOS concept, conservation of momentum for a lifting problem, and volumetric flow rate equation. Pretty straight forward.   Answer Question
