IMPORTANT NOTE:  I do have another Senior Process Control Engineer role to fill in Alabama. It does not require Honeywell DCS experience but it does require a very strong background in DCS. That role requires an Engineering degree as well as chemical industry experience. They want a leader but not necessarily a manager of people. That is not required for the role.
