Title:  Test Engineer III

POSITION SUMMARY: 
A Test Engineer designs, develops, and implements cost-effective methods that result in stable, controlled production test methods of multiple kW RF and DC power supplies.  The purpose is to establish a test paradigm that will meet customer’s needs, meeting product specifications with well-documented test processes and data.  The data and processes will result in production SPC control to keep product measurements and power control repeatable and cost effective.


ESSENTIAL RESPONSIBILITIES:
•    Ensure testability of new product designs, providing feedback to design teams addressing opportunities for defects in manufacturing and field use.
•    Accurately estimate project costs, production test and labor time as associated with implementing production test solutions.
•    Implement test flow and process into manufacturing that includes the software, databases and hardware for manufcaturing.
•    Create the test structure and flow of manufacturing, work with engineering to transition to production
•    Ability to implement SPC and provide databases and reporting infrastructure to customers and internally
•    Own the test requirements that will ensure the product will meet its end specification.
•    Prepares test and diagnostic programs in LabView and Matlab.
•    Lead MSA’s across multiple sites
•    Analyze test equipment capabilities and ensure control of critical parameters of products and test equipment.
•    Works with diagrams, layouts and electrical circuit schematics to develop test procedures that will catch failures, ensure reliability and accuracy of RF and DC power supplies.
•    Performs operational test and fault isolation on electrical systems and equipment. 
•    Work with engineering teams in Asia and the US.


WORK ENVIRONMENT:
Test Engineers regularly work in lab, office, and manufacturing facilities.  Travel to international manufacturing and/or development locations will be required.  Approximately 10% travel.

 

SKILLS & EXPERIENCE:
•    Greater than 5 years of relevant design/development team and/or manufacturing support.  
•    Proven ability to methodically solve complex, technical issues.  
•    Must have strong problem-solving attributes.  
•    Able to operate a electrical test equipment – oscilloscopes, DVM, electrical power measurent, spectrum analyzers.
•    Capable in hardware and software development.  
•    Strong at communicating with and influencing design teams, vendors, and customers.
•    Demonstrated proficency in NI LabView test application development – muliple years of development.
•    Demonstrated development of an entire test paradigm for manufacturing.
•    Demonstrated implementation of SPC in manufacturing, design of experiments (DOE), measurement system analysis (MSA).


EDUCATION:
Bachelor Degree in Engineering or Science with at least 5 year(s) relevant experience
