Primary Function of Position:

Contribute your technical engineering, manufacturing and equipment design skills to a dynamic development team creating precision instruments & electrosurgical equipment for minimally invasive robotic surgery. The role requires active participation with new product development and sustaining engineering teams that create and refine electronic systems & equipment, process documentation, tooling and test methods.  Additional focus will be put on challenging the new product designs to improve manufacturability, reliability, and cost.

 

Roles and Responsibilities:

  • Create, maintain and improve equipment associated with “mid-volume” electronic manufacturing assembly
  • Specify and/or refine BOMs, work flow processes, manufacturing plans and detailed work instructions.
  • Provide product, process,  PCBA DFx (Manufacturing, Assembly) input to enhance manufacturability of electronic systems
  • Develop and/or review manufacturing test specifications/procedures for final test of PCBs and final product.
  • Design, document, procure, qualify, implement, and improve fixtures, tools and equipment.
  • Analyze risk in manufacturing processes (PFMEA) to incorporate and validate critical tests required.
  • Responsible for the validation and qualification of manufacturing equipment and processes leveraging standard qualification approaches (IQ/OQ/DQ/PQ).
  • Responsible for establishing and qualifying manufacturing at contact manufactures.
  • Provide production support through successful and sustained project launch.
  • Identify and implement continuous improvement projects with respect to first pass yield, cycle time reduction, product reliability, capacity enhancement and cost reduction.
  • Provides technical support analyzing and /or performing failure analysis for discrepant production components, assemblies and field returns.


 

Skills, Experience, Education, & Training:

  • Minimum of a BS/MS degree in Electrical Engineering discipline preferred.  Preferred background in electronic hardware engineering
  • Minimum 8 years of experience in a related field.
  • Fundamental understanding of modern electronics manufacturing processes, flexible and printed circuit board technologies, component selection, test and inspection methodologies. 
  • “Self-starter” attitude and comfort in a hands-on environment, where he/she can demonstrate an ability to work with other engineers to influence product design to improve reliability.
  • Troubleshooting mind set - an ability to systematically and effectively break down a system or process into subparts to identify failures and troubleshoot to component level.
  • Excellent documentation skills and ability to communicate effectively both verbally and in writing across all levels of the organization.
  • Strong training and mentoring skills.
  • Experience in an ISO 13485, ISO 9001, or medical device manufacturing environment.
  • Experience with documentation and production control systems in Agile & SAP a plus
