SALT LAKE CITY — L3Harris is the eighth biggest private employer in Salt Lake County, the 15th biggest in Utah and they are one of the ten biggest defense contractors in America.
But don’t feel bad if you haven’t heard of them. It’s supposed to be that way.
L3Harris manufactures technology they can’t really talk about, says their Vice President of Engineering in Utah, Aurora Taylor-Rojas.
“What we focus on is securing all the communications for the war fighter,” said Taylor-Rojas.
It’s sensitive work that is considered essential, meaning it continued through the pandemic shutdowns.
“I think within a week we had over 60 percent of our workforce working from home at some level,” said Taylor-Rojas.
Beyond just continuing their work, L3Harris is building a new factory in Utah and they are advertising 200 new positions for engineers.
“Anyone that is interested in huge growth, technology and the products we provide the services that we provide are essential right now for our military men and women so it is a very exciting place to work,” said Taylor-Rojas.
