    Pittsburgh, PA - Communications Coordinator Opening

    Dan Prokop
      MECCO (www.mecco.com) is a manufacturer of industrial part marking equipment for a variety of industries including automotive, oil & gas, and aerospace. At the risk of sounding like nerds, we build lasers that Fortune 100 companies use to mark serial numbers, barcodes and logos for product identification and traceability. Although we’ve been around for 125 years, our new technology focus creates a startup vibe at our Cranberry Twp office, where we’ve developed some pretty innovative technology that’s changing how lasers can be automated on the factory floor.

      We apply the same philosophy to our marketing approach. At MECCO, you’ll have an opportunity to work with leading marketing tools like Salesforce and Marketo in an environment that allows the freedom to test new marketing strategies and quickly adapt.
