Engineer your career at DISHER

It’s engineering that makes a difference.

We’re expanding at DISHER. In fact, we’re busting at the seams. We are looking for talented and passionate professionals who care about the work they do. We are looking to fill a wide variety of engineering, design and other product development roles.

Do work that matters

We believe that our company and the work we do should be meaningful and have a lasting impact. That is why the mission on our wall, “Make a Positive Difference,” pervades everything we do and motivates us every day.

Join the 5th Best Small Company

DISHER was named by Great Place to Work® as the 5th best small workplace in the United States. We know that our team is what makes our culture what it is. We are humbled that 100% of employees at DISHER say our workplace is great.

Share in the profit pie

At DISHER, we are all owners in our ESOP. We get to decide how to divide our “Profit Pie,” with certain slices going toward bonuses, profit sharing, stewardship, training, and investment back into the company.

Play Hard, Work Harder

Everyone on our team is issued a personal nerf gun during orientation and every Friday we gather for a company lunch. While we make time for play, we are also passionate about our work and go the extra mile to make sure our clients receive great results.

Hear what our people have to say:

  • “I could not think of an instance during the past year when any of my colleagues were disgruntled, depressed, or irritable. There had been no complaining, gossiping, or squabbling among any of them.  I can say that I have not happened upon a happier people, among any company, in this field of discipline. They are among the most honest, giving, helpful, and humble people I have ever associated with. I am proud to be a part of this team, the culture, and the mission that we are engaged in. Working at DISHER makes me a better person.”

    Chad Barnes - Team Lead - Product Development

  • "I can't wait to get here everyday because I like being a part of something bigger than myself. As a service organization, we are 'all in' together and we provide the best possible service with a heart!"

    Aimee VandenElzen - Team Lead – Product Development | Program Management

    Tyler Losinski - Product Development Engineer

  • "I've worked for many big name companies and they are all alike. Those companies care more about the stockholders than their own people. DISHER is the opposite of that. The people are the most important part of the company and they treat each other like family."

    Chuck Beasley - Product Development Engineer

  • "I love DISHER because we are so focused on Making a Positive Difference. From the way we interact with our customers to the hours we dedicate to nonprofit organizations around the world, we are living our mission every day."
