What You’ll Do:
§ The manufacturing engineer will be responsible for supporting general tooling needs for various automation equipment and the back-end mechanical assembly processes of optical transceiver modules as we prepare for a significant production ramp. You will take a hands-on and data driven approach to development, debugging, and continuous improvement that are mechanical and opto-electro-mechanical focused.
Job duties and responsibilities:
§ Help develop construction/maintenance/repair techniques for robotic grippers for automated equipment.
§ Support the assembly and commissioning of machines, documentation, and troubleshooting.
§ Some oversees travel may be required to provide support for equipment upgrades and training for our CM factories.
§ Design, improve, procure, and validate assembly fixtures/tools.
§ Support PCBA singulation, fiber optic connector, and housing assembly.
§ Develop and refine assembly methodologies for process repeatability and robustness.
§ Create process and engineering documents.
§ Implement lean manufacturing practices.
Develop standardized work instructions, implement 5S, balance lines, create process flow.
Review manufacturing activities and make recommendations to reduce cost, improve setup/cycle times, remove non-value added activities from the manufacturing process.
§ Address process excursions/issues with a systematic approach to problem solving and statistical analysis.
§ Conduct DOE studies for process optimization and root cause analysis efforts.
§ Prepare various test/8D/MRB reports and present to the technical team/management for recommended actions.
Who you’ll work with:
§ You will be part of the manufacturing engineering team in our Carlsbad facility that supports high volume manufacturing operation of wafer-scale optical chipset assemblies as well as a module level pilot line in our cleanroom. We are a fast pace, dynamic, and hands-on group of engineers responsible for die attach, wirebond, active optical alignment, encap, singulation, and other assembly operations. We work closely with other cross-functional teams such as R&D, Quality, and Production to tackle some of the most difficult manufacturing challenges.
Who you are:
§ BS or MS in Mechanical, Industrial, or Electrical/Electronics Engineering
§ 5+ years in micro-electronic device assembly and/or opto-electronics manufacturing environment experience is preferred.
§ Strong problem-solving skills using 8D method and sound engineering approach to decision making.
§ Experience leading PFMEA efforts and constructing control plans.
§ Good understanding of GR&R, CpK, correlation, and process control related statistical analysis.
§ Self-starter to manage projects/tasks from beginning to completion with minimal supervision.
§ The ability to communicate effectively (verbal and written) across departments.
§ Working knowledge of statistical software tools such as JMP or equivalent.
§ Proficient in Solidworks.
§ Must be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment.
