What you will be doing:

  • Program, set-up and operate world class ultra-high precision machine tools

  • Establish and plan techniques and procedures to carry out advanced machining assignments and set task priorities.

  • Perform math calculations utilizing intermediate knowledge of materials to achieve ultra-precision dimensions, finishes, and design intent.

  • Design and fabricate complex work holding fixtures to be used during a variety of manufacturing processes

  • Operate high precision non-contact inspection equipment including laser scanning microscopes and white light interferometer

  • Maintain cutter and stock inventory

To be successful, you will need:

  • BS degree in Mechanical Engineering and 5 years experience

  • Completion of an apprenticeship program in the machining trade or equivalent level of prior experience

  • Have an intermediate knowledge level of SolidWorks

  • Hands on direct experience with CAM software, 5 axis preferred

  • Knowledge of ASME Y15.5M drafting standard (GD&T)

  • Ability to perform and plan moderately complex machining operations with CNC machine tools and related manufacturing and measuring equipment (machining, planning, and estimating)

  • Strong organizational skills to manage multidisciplinary projects

  • Strong written and oral communication skills

  • Ability to perform under pressure and adapt to changes (e.g., priorities and timelines)

  • Effective verbal and written communication skills to communicate effectively in a technical environment

Nice to have skills & background:

  • Experience with Heidenheim TNC-640 controller and Hypermill CAD/CAM program

  • Experience machining and measuring parts with tolerances at the 1um level

  • Understanding of safety and safe working practices.

  • Familiarity with environmental monitoring of temperature and manufacturing conditions (i.e. understanding of different sensors applications and limitations)

  • Desire to be part of a rapidly evolving organization, with compelling technology, and taking products and processes to the next level.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, sex, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, protected veteran status, or on the basis of disability.
