  • Partner with R&D engineers to drive rigor in deriving appropriate and thorough manufacturing test requirements, and to ensure that test systems are aligned with the capability of the product.
  • Architect test capabilities and systems based on an existing, common SRCTec platform while developing customized features and interfaces.
  • Generate, debug, and validate test station software using LabVIEW and TestStand development applications or equivalent.
  • Provide direct support to factory and sustaining personnel during new product transitions to volume manufacturing, including test station use / debug / maintenance, and assist in determining root cause of production test failures as necessary.
  • Lead and manage multiple test development efforts simultaneously and direct assigned test development resources as required.
  • Coach and mentor junior test engineers and less experienced staff in effective test design practices and concepts.

  • Maintain flexibility and stability in a constantly changing technical environment.
  • Apply methodical and analytical problem-solving skills to challenging manufacturing test issues.
  • Utilize skills in project management to ensure timely and complete execution of test development efforts.

Preferred background

  • Subject matter expertise in manufacturing test strategy and DFT as part of new product development efforts and manufacturing transition initiatives.
  • Ability to translate fully or partially defined system and/or test requirements into robust manufacturing test solutions, in some cases where no precedent exists.
  • Skilled in printed circuit card assembly (PCA) thru system level functional test development (and everything in between).
  • Hands-on experience working with sensitive RF measurements and high-speed digital systems.
  • Competent in LabVIEW and TestStand development environments, with NI certification preferred in both.
