Records Technician

Put a LIFT in Your Career! Hyster-Yale Group, a world-class manufacturer of industrial lift trucks, has an outstanding opportunity for an exceptional and talented Engineering Support Technician at our facility located in the Portland, Oregon area. Hyster-Yale Group designs, engineers, manufactures, sells and services a comprehensive line of lift trucks and aftermarket parts marketed globally under the Hyster and Yale brand names. We are one of the global leaders in the Material Handling industry and have been building relationships and partnering with our customers, suppliers, dealers and employees for over 80 years.

Hyster-Yale Group is looking for an energetic individual who will have a positive influence on the organization and the Engineering Support team.


T his is a position that has ample room for rapid growth into a supervisory role depending on a candidates interests and abilities to adsorb new knowledge, processes, and computer systems.

The position would start with basics, learning core Hyster-Yale Records data and computer software systems, and using those systems effectively. An apprenticeship approach will be used in developing this position. Time will be spent learning and performing the job function of all current employees within the Records group. These functions include:

* Leverage vendor/supplier documentation to import their engineering part data and supporting information into Hyster-Yale systems.

* Interacting with Design Engineering to understand various technical aspects of new technology (i.e. Fuel Cells, EV).

* Working with process owners to understand Hyster-Yale processes and maintain standards as necessary.

* Training of users in Hyster-Yale systems

* Work within Microsoft SharePoint, Excel, or Word to maintain data.

As this role progresses it is expected that successful candidates will grow a comprehensive knowledge of how the data 'flows' within systems and processes and take on the role of a solutions architect. Using their knowledge, opportunities for improvement will be identified and creative problem solving skills applied to find better ways of accomplishing tasks. Direct programming experience is not required. Successful candidates will be able to effectively communicate their needs to IT programmers using flowcharts, PowerPoint, or Excel data models and actively participate in meetings with topic and system-level experts to find the best approach to a problem. Successful candidates will also transition to a supervisory position and will be responsible for directing daily activities of the Records Group and its personnel.
