Columbus, Georgia, USA

Pratt & Whitney is working to once again transform the future of flight—designing, building and servicing engines unlike any the world has ever seen. And because transformation begins from within, we’re seeking the people to drive it. So, calling all curious. 

In addition to transforming the future of flight, we are also transforming how and where we work. Pratt & Whitney is laser focused on offering flexibility to our employees. We’ve introduced role types (Onsite, Hybrid, or Remote) and now list them in the job posting title so candidates know where they will operate in our blended work environment.* Please consider the following role type definitions as you apply for this role.

Onsite: Employees who are working in Onsite roles will work primarily onsite. This includes all production and maintenance workers, as they are essential to the development of our engines.

Come ready to explore and you’ll find a place where your talent takes flight—beyond the borders of title, a country or your comfort zone. Bring your passion and commitment and we’ll welcome you into a tight-knit team that takes our mission personally. Channel your drive to make a difference into shaping an organization and an industry that’s evolving fast to the future.

Where the difference you make is on display every day. Just look up. 

Are you ready to go beyond?

*Note: Hybrid and remote roles at many of our sites are currently working from home because of COVID-19 protocols. Candidates will learn more about role type and current site status throughout the recruiting process.

Flight is an instrument of human progress. It not only gets people where they want to go, it carries humanity to places it never thought possible.

You will be part of an evolving, globally diverse company that’s moving fast to craft the future of aviation; one full of career opportunities and the chance to contribute and grow in a variety of ways. Customers all over the world depend on our technology and the people behind it. As part of the team, you’ll help answer today’s challenges in powered flight while molding and supporting tomorrow’s solutions.

Pratt & Whitney’s Columbus Blades Manufacturing Facility is transforming for the future to support legacy product lines and new engine programs for both military and commercial applications. We continually make significant investments in technology and resources to better support customers and their engines now and for new customers.
