You will work closely with a cross-functional engineering team ranging from Hardware Design, Systems, Software and Operations teams to guide development of automation equipment from a series of unit-level machines into a robust, integrated system. The role will draw on a wide breadth of engineering skills including data analysis, throughput optimization, lean manufacturing, and process engineering. The role requires you to develop effective solutions to a wide range of problems that arise during integration of complex capital equipment.
In this role you will:
- Own the growth of technology from a series of unit-level machines into an integrated system with appropriate system controls
- Identify and track key system performance indicators to prioritize high-impact changes, guide implementation, document qualification, and ensure user acceptance
- Design new processes to improve system level yield and throughput performance by defining clear objectives, communicating data requirements, leveraging internal software, and applying project management principles.
- Identify waste and other cost reduction opportunities and collaborate with the cross functional team to implement solutions
- Participate in system level tests by collaborating with engineers on design of experiments and working with operations to run tests and collect data
What We’re Looking For
- Bachelor’s degree in mechanical, process, manufacturing, industrial engineering or similar
- Experience designing experiments and leading data-driven investigations
- Programming competency within common languages used for data analysis (SQL, Python, etc.)
- Demonstrated competence solving problems using root cause analysis
- Experience working with capital equipment and mechatronics hardware such as motors, drives, sensors, and actuators
- Hands on aptitude – able to dive in and troubleshoot a variety of system issues across multiple engineering disciplines
- 2+ years of professional work experience
What we’d love to see
- Lean manufacturing experience
- Simulation experience
- Electrical and mechanical system design experience
- Understanding of industrial control systems and factory automation
- Experience in food tech
- Experience with CAD (Solidworks)
- Desire to work in a fast-paced startup environment
- Care for local and global communities, and desire to make an impact through technology
- Not afraid of robots
What You Get
- A chance to be an early member of a rapidly growing startup and have an impact on company and technology direction
- Ability to solve challenging problems with a skilled and dedicated multi-disciplinary team
- A balanced, highly collaborative work environment where we encourage everyone to ask for and provide help. We value and support individual growth through open communication and feedback
- Hybrid work structure that allows you to choose when and where you get your best work done
- Competitive medical, dental, and vision coverage, with 401K, life and disability coverage as well
- A PTO policy where we encourage and expect all employees to take time to enjoy life outside of work
- The salary range for this position is $90,000-$140,000 plus stock and benefits. Pay within the range is based on candidate experience, job-specific skills, education, and work location.
