We are currently looking for multiple, full-time Engineering Technicians (entry – senior level) who will work hand-in-hand with our engineers and researchers to support growing and building our advanced manufacturing control technologies and processing techniques. This position requires a technical background with experience in building and maintaining systems of a variety of types either through education or work experience. A day in this position will start with a quick review between project team members on major tasks for the day, then likely the technician and engineer moving to the lab to iterate on the latest designs/testing and processing procedures. This might include running clearly laid out and defined experiments and identifying flaws in the initial designs.
This will be a fast-paced, dynamic role that requires strong communication skills (written and oral), experience working in a team and an ability to work with your hands and use/learn new tools. Daily tasks will fluctuate from running our processing systems to maintaining quality control & inspection schedules. This person will be responsible for the development, maintenance, and troubleshooting efforts of electrical, mechanical, and fluid systems, and the building of characterization standards for our lab scale efforts. This position will be very much hands-on and will require quick decision making to achieve efficient execution of our project-based objectives.
