We are a team of engineers, technicians, and machinists who take responsibility for the critical role we play in our partners’ businesses. Our team has experience, training, and certifications in a broad array of engineering, manufacturing, safety, and technology disciplines. We are passionate about our work, and we see each challenge as an opportunity to bring these different perspectives together to create innovative solutions.

Founded in a garage in 1995, Applied Motion Systems has grown from two veteran engineers to a team of over 50. Our engineering and manufacturing facility in Vancouver, Washington, is designed to maximize our team’s capabilities and perform real-world machine testing to help our partners achieve greater performance, efficiency, and scale.


Our Mission is Flourishing

We work to facilitate mutual thriving in everything we do – because shared benefits are benefits that endure. Our endeavors are successful when they enable operators, energize our team, and deliver for our partners and suppliers.

Find joy in simplifying complexity

We see intricate problems as fantastic challenges. What lights us up is the chance to draw on our talent, training, and experience to create elegant solutions and deploy them with excellence.

Know what you don’t know

The more we learn, the more we realize we don’t know. Along the way, we retain the humility to keep asking questions and listen with an open mind.

Build trust through transparency

Put simply, we say what we mean and do what we say. We share knowledge freely, speak up openly, and act with integrity.

Steward responsibly

We value the relationships and resources of our customers, our suppliers, and our team members. We live our purpose only when we care for and protect these vital contributions to our work.



Our team members come from diverse backgrounds and life experiences as artists, mechanics, and engineering PHDs. What they have in common is what makes them thrive here at Applied Motion: each is a naturally curious life-long learner who knows the best solutions emerge from open collaboration.

As part of our team, you’ll find the balance of challenge and support that catalyzes career growth. We’ve created an environment where you can engage your talents, learn from others, and continuously hone your skillset as we carve out your right-fit role among the team.

If this sounds like the kind of environment where you want to bring forth your skills and interests, we invite you to reach out — we’d enjoy getting to know you.
