Attractions Maintenance Engineering Manager

Job Summary:

If it's moving, it's ours. That's the motto of every Engineering Services Manager at Walt Disney World. As an Engineering Services Manager, it's a given that there will be admin work like scheduling, payroll, organizing inspections and strict adherence to every local, state and federal requirement, but this job is really about the professionals you lead and the Guests who come to Disney to have the time of their lives. Because Engineering Services Managers oversee both mechanical and electrical trades, they need knowledge of both disciplines to lead up to fifty craft workers, but more importantly, they must know how to instill a can-do mindset in their team.


Every day as an Engineering Services Manager is different. On any given day, you might:
  • Help your team get to the root of a problem by reverse-engineering, walking through the logic and finding a solution;
  • Lead a team performing corrective maintenance on Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway or conducting detailed preventative maintenance on a Monorail or Ferry Boat;
  • Troubleshoot electronics, PLC, hydraulics, audio and video systems, drive systems from all eras and even D/C motors;
  • Lead maintenance teams supporting attractions, transportation assets such as buses, heavy equipment, and watercraft, and even manufacturing equipment in one of our state of the art facilities;
  • Encourage your team to collaborate, share ideas and reach an agreement – it's your job to gather the collective wisdom and then decide on the path forward;
  • Whether on first or second shift when the Park is operational or at night when the Guests have gone, it's up to you to keep everything humming and ensure all preventive maintenance is done so guests are able to enjoy the Magic daily;
  • Bend, duck, crawl through tight, dark spaces and walk up to five miles per shift – this is an active job, and Walt Disney World is essentially your office;
  • Put your skills to use by creating concise incident reports that can be referenced by your peers and leaders;
  • Manage union contracts, balance staffing among the shifts, schedule vacations and monitor payroll;
  • Enjoy the perks and benefits of working for The Walt Disney Company, including movie screenings, deep discounts on things you can really use, and free entry to our Parks using your Gate Pass!

Basic Qualifications:

You Have:
  • 5+ years minimum experience in a maintenance-related field, and some direct experience in an industrial, plant, manufacturing, theme park and/or transportation maintenance environment;
  • 3+ years of leadership experience in a maintenance environment;
  • Expertise with electrical and electronic systems function and repair;
  • Understanding of mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic systems and subassemblies, to include those that might be used in attractions, watercraft, buses, and manufacturing;
  • Well-developed time-management skills;
  • Genuine interest in mentoring others, and with forming partnerships with your team and leaders;
  • Customer-service and "team" orientation;
  • Often work outdoors in all weather conditions, and handle the physical rigors of the job;
  • Lead up to 50 union craft workers;
  • Willing to work evenings, holidays, weekends and varying shifts

It would be great if you also had:
  • Financial management and budgeting skills;
  • Facility with SAP and maintenance reporting/scheduling systems such as Maximo;
  • Experience with PLCs, sensors, pneumatics, hydraulics or drive systems;
