The Manufacturing Engineer will work in a fast-paced production environment supporting manufacture and coating of cutting edge optical components using advanced manufacturing equipment and technology. This exciting work will include the opportunity to work hands on with products and provide technical guidance and support to technicians and operators to facilitate optimal performance.
• The engineer will develop and execute manufacturing process plans for optics component manufacturing, continuously improve processes and plans using tools and methods such as statistical process control (SPC) and design of experiments (DOE), and conceptualize, design and execute tooling requirements using ProE.
• The engineer will have the opportunity to identify root causes and corrective action of technical production problems and develop re-work instructions as needed.
• The engineer will have the opportunity to participate in and/or lead process improvement teams and other small project technical teams, and travel in support of business, as needed.
• The engineer will support the development of formal manufacturing technicians and operators training courses and may be required to perform OJT training of supervisors, other engineers and operators.
• The engineer will continuously learn and apply a wide variety of engineering techniques, will contribute to projects in a teaming environment and will investigate, transfer, and adapt processes, techniques, or methods to new applications.
• The engineer will assist with capital improvement projects to include new systems
• The engineer will support and have opportunity to lead non-recurring projects through the entire lifecycle from design and prototype through production.
• The engineer will interact with optical design engineers to support producibility assessments of current and future products.
• The engineer will have the opportunity to stay up-to-date on the latest advancements and best practices in the field of optics / thin film coatings manufacturing.
Our role will have unique hours due to the high level of activity going on in our business. The engineer will start their second shift at 1:00 PM and will have to opportunity to overlap with first and second shift technicians and first shift engineers as well as our second shift engineering team. The engineer will train for a few months during dayshift hours and will move to our second shift once she/he is sufficiently proficient. At some point in the future the engineer may have an opportunity to move to a day shift role if business needs are conducive to that.
This position will offer the opportunity for occasional domestic travel.
