  • Candidate must have demonstrated experience in testing and developing and control requirements for industrial equipment.
  • Participate in team brain-storms and new technology development. Develop new simulation tools/capabilities as needed.
  • Familiar with SOA instrumentation and control schemes. The candidate will be expected to evaluate and make decisions on testing and evaluation strategies for system performance.
  • Propose and evaluate design concepts for feasibility, reliability, and cost effectiveness.
  • Collaborate with optical, mechanical, and electrical engineers to provide a system-level view of subsystem interactions, to define and ensure clean interfaces, and to ensure design goals are met.
  • Collaborate with process engineers to guide development toward process-friendly technical solutions.
  • Collaborate with software engineers to guide design of software features and the user interface to optimize the user experience.
  • Identify and resolve technical risks and design weaknesses during the design phase.
  • Use experimentation, data analysis and modeling to address technical risks.
  • Plan and execute bench and system tests to verify functionality and validate conformance to requirements.
  • Propose test methodologies and analyze test data to evaluate performance, troubleshoot issues, and solve problems as part of development and in support of existing products.
  • Generate summary reports and presentations, and participate and present material in design reviews.
  • Influence the next generation product designs by contributing to the framework (architecture) used across multiple products or systems.
  • Provide have cross functional and multi-layered technical expertise to drive next generation equipment design initiative.
  • Generate intellectual property.
  • Experience with control schemes, sub-system performance spec development, error budget allocation and system interface development and integration are required. Solid experience data analysis and interpretation is required.
  • Desired Traits:
    • Broad technical knowledge, system-level thinking, excellent problem-solving skills, intellectual curiosity i.e. through critical thinking, detailed analysis and a commitment to integrity.
