We love a good challenge.

Founded in 1974 by Charles Keller in the basement of his family home, CW Keller has grown to become one of the most respected fabrication shops in the U.S. From design-assist at project conceptualization to BIM coordination to competitive bids, CW Keller excels at managing complexity in the creation some of the most innovative, buildable and affordable design projects.

Appreciation for the complete architectural project coupled with representational knowledge and expertise results in our precise understanding of the connection between drawing and making. We have built our reputation not only on highly visible complex constructions, but with elegant engineering solutions that help manage complexity to schedule and budget. CW Keller stands alone in our ability to deliver at all scales from individual desks to major metropolitan infrastructure.

Our team is comprised of craftspeople from across the digital and physical spectrum whose collective experience building thousands of projects have established a deep knowledge-base for how things go together.

Our business is to turn great designs into great things. Success in complex fabrication is the result of a deep respect for craft combined with a forward-thinking approach to technology. Respect craft, embrace technology. At CW Keller, we do not choose one over the other.

Join us.


Project Engineer

CW Keller is seeking Project Engineers to join our digitally intensive engineering team. CWKA Project Engineers leverage diverse expertise across multiple disciplines in the development and delivery of fabrication-ready information. At CW Keller, the only constant is change – most our projects are one-of-a-kind and present unique challenges to both engineering and fabrication. Critical to the Project Engineering role is the desire to collaborate in a demanding environment and the skillset to operate within dynamic digital workflows.

Project Engineers are often the primary technical point of contact on projects and work closely with Project Managers, Project Executives, Mill Captains and Shop Captains throughout the project lifecycle. As such, Project Engineers are expected to perform several complimentary roles within the organization based on experience and expertise.



  • Drafting: produce clear, accurate, and consistent documentation (shop drawings) for approval and fabrication.
  • Modeling: Develop comprehensive 3d models, both static and parametric, at fabrication-level accuracy and tolerances. Ability to convert laser scans to point clouds and surface models.
  • CNC Programming: Generate CNC programs for both 3 and 5 axis machining based on 2d and 3d part drawings and models.
  • Conduct site visits to perform site surveys, both manual and laser-scan, and field verifications.
  • Communicate with both Project Management and Fabrication Job Captains as required for the successful completion of projects.
  • Adhere to and outperform strict project timelines.



The ideal candidate is well-versed in digital fabrication and motivated to succeed in a fast-paced, dynamic environment. The position is at our Plaistow, NH office and all candidates must be willing to relocate if not currently located in the immediate area. In addition, the ideal candidate:

  • Has obtained a professional degree (Industrial Design, Engineering, Architecture, or a related field) or relevant vocational training and certification.
  • Has an advanced knowledge of Rhino 3D.
  • Has experience using Grasshopper or Rhinoscript for parametric modeling and automation.
  • Has experience programming in Mastercam for 3 and 5 axis machining.
  • Has experience at one of the following levels:
    • Project Engineer: 3- 5 years of experience in Architectural Fabrication or a related industry.
    • Senior Project Engineer: 5 – 10 years of experience in Architectural Fabrication or a related industry.
