Job Description: Calibration Engineer

Instron is a global organization that designs, manufactures, sells and services materials testing systems. Instron is a clear global leader in materials testing applications and its leadership in the marketplace is continually expanding. You will find that our established strength, commitment to our core values and team focus provides an engaging work environment and offers exceptional opportunities for personal and career development.


This position will have primary responsibility for the development of new calibration procedures, and updating of existing procedures, used by the Field Service organization to deliver calibration services worldwide. This includes technical content, adherence to quality and metrology principles and standards (e.g. ISO 17025), and final documentation. The new procedures will be based on existing ISO or ASTM methods and standards, so the ability to understand, in detail, existing standards and translate them to practical application is critical. The final methods must pass technical and quality audits by an external lab accreditation agency. Candidate will interact with Instron calibration lab managers world-wide for technical direction, key Instron field engineers for their input, and software engineers as required. Candidate must develop thorough understanding of the relevant methods and equipment through research and hands-on operation of the equipment. Takes project direction directly from the calibration lab manager.

Principal Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Develop and document procedures and equipment necessary to implement new calibration services to be delivered by our field service engineers.

  • Develop and document procedures and equipment to expand our in-house calibration lab's capabilities and reduce our reliance on outside vendors for calibration.

  • Develop detailed technical specification for calibration equipment to be used by our field service organization for the delivery of our calibration services.

  • Perform uncertainty analyses in compliance with international standards

  • Support and improve existing procedures and documentation used by service engineers to perform calibrations in the field.

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities Required:

  • Mechanical Engineering degree or other technical degree with sound mechanical aptitude.

  • Excellent organization, attention to detail and writing skills.

  • Typical experience 2-5 years working with processes, engineering or quality documentation.

  • Should understand and be able to apply the concepts of metrology and uncertainty of measurement, and related statistics.

  • Proficiency with Excel spreadsheets as a method of collecting, analyzing, and reporting calibration data is a plus.

  • Ability to translate existing standards into procedures and methods that can be readily implemented by a widely dispersed field organization.

  • Very advantageous if already experienced in ISO 17025 practices and development of ASTM or ISO based calibration methods.

Working Conditions:

Normal plant environment with some exposure to dirt, noise and grease, operational equipment, and the hazards associated with the application of Force Measuring Instrumentation.

Take this opportunity to join a successful and enthusiastic global team where you can make a significant impact immediately. Enjoy a competitive salary and generous benefits that includes health, dental, life and LTD insurance, 401k (with match), and a 100% tuition reimbursement program. Instron is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. We employ, train, compensate and promote regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, veteran status, and other protected status as required by applicable law.
