Scope of Position:
Design, develop, improve and industrialize Optical Fiber manufacturing platforms (platform = process + equipment) for revolutionary manufacturing processes, thereby enabling step-change reductions in manufacturing cost and/or enabling new products with advantaged attributes.
Drive for root-cause fundamental understanding of limitations in manufacturing processes. Use scientific method and engineering principles to solve problems thoroughly and effectively, using well-designed and executed process experiments.
Translate understanding and experimental solutions to engineering requirements, then further to process and/or equipment designs which deliver performance criteria.
Work is typically completed as a member of a technology development team chartered with improving one or more of the following: manufacturing yields (selections), process rate, machine utilization, product quality, new product quality, environmental compliance, raw material yield, and/or energy usage.
Major Responsibilities:
Learn & understand process & equipment functions in area of responsibility.
Design, develop, and industrialize manufacturing platforms (platform = process + equipment) for revolutionary manufacturing processes. Re-design machine/process systems or sub-systems to solve safety, performance, or quality issues, or reduce either the as-installed or long-term operational costs.
Provide troubleshooting support to the prototype platform during development and demonstration phase.
Travel Requirements:
Hours of work/work schedule/flex-time:
The position is overtime exempt. Overtime is not uncommon and is indeed expected at times, however the amount and duration will vary as a function of the job position, particular project, and point in the project life cycle.

Minimum BS or MS in Chemical, Ceramic, or Materials Science Engineering. Preference for 1-5 years engineering experience, including process engineering experience.
Desired Skills:
Display a bias for action in situations of uncertainty, with pro-active attention to issues and problems.
Use scientific method and engineering principles to solve problems thoroughly and effectively, using well-designed and executed process experiments.
Drive for root cause fundamental understanding of challenging problems.
Ability to translate engineering solutions to requirements, then further to process and/or equipment designs which deliver all required and promised performance criteria.
Effectively use relevant measured and/or modeled data to drive decisions and actions.
Determine and recommend best solution from a series of alternatives within given guidelines.
Thoroughly carry assignments to completion.
Communicate effectively in various settings to provide and present necessary information to Project, Department, and Site leaders.
Work well both within a multi-disciplined team, and independently with minimal oversight.
Experience with process modeling simulation software (e.g., Aspen, Matlab) and/or mechanical design software (SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor) and/or Microsoft Product suite.
EOE/AA including Veterans and Disabled

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
