R&D Design and Test Technician
HiFunda is a Utah-based technology incubator focused on developing new materials-related technologies for energy, defense, and commercial applications. As a technology incubator, HiFunda develops innovative high-potential materials-based solutions, reduces technology risk and increases the technology readiness level of these technologies through product development/R&D, and when appropriate launches product-oriented new businesses that are highly focused on commercialization of specific technologies.
HiFunda is seeking a qualified research and development (R&D) design and test technician (mechanical, chemical, or related) with a background supporting materials and device R&D. The technician must be proficient in using SolidWorks to establish and evaluate design concepts as well as machining, inspecting, assembling, and testing components and assemblies to evaluate design concepts. The ideal candidate will have industrial experience that can lend itself to a wide range of projects with strong oral and written communication skills.
Previous experience with design, fabrication, assembly, and testing of prototype devices, setting up and executing experiments, data collection (LabView), data analysis, and reporting is required. Previous sensor development and ceramic and materials processing experience is desirable. An ideal candidate will have 10+ years of relevant equivalent experience in a fast-paced work environment. Leading candidates will have demonstrated the ability to execute ongoing project work successfully and have the ability to think creatively to come up with new ideas that can extend the company’s technical reach into new areas.
US Citizenship or green card is required.
Starting salary is commensurate with experience and fit. The company offers a full benefits package and will pay reasonable relocation costs to Salt Lake City, UT.
We strongly encourage you to apply if you are the type of person who:
1. Appreciates the benefits of a start-up company environment (i.e., enjoys small working groups and sees opportunity instead of uncertainty)
2. Is driven, self-motivated, and capable of working both independently and in support of multidisciplinary teams.
3. Has strong communication and writing skills.
4. Has a strong work-ethic and is driven to achieve and succeed.
5. Will enjoy the lifestyle options offered by the Salt Lake City area (skiing, hiking, mountain biking and lots more).
Interested candidates should send a resume, references, and cover letter describing their interest in the position and how they fit this job description to firstname.lastname@example.org.
