• Drive clarity among peers and senior management by distilling complex technical challenges, outlining options, and providing recommendations.

• Devising trials for demonstration of production process capability of new products.

• Analyzing trial data to identify issues and propose improvements.

  • Defining material specification, SOP, and process parameter requirements that are compatible with our goals for safety, quality, delivery, and cost in mass production.

 

Job Requirements:

 

• A Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering.

• Five or more years of experience in an engineering role involving product development or manufacturing.
