Under the general supervision of the Director of Manufacturing
Engineering, the Manufacturing Engineer will be primarily
responsible for solving mechanical, electrical, or software issues
related to production equipment or manufactured product. The
Manufacturing Engineer is responsible for all aspects of a given
project, and responsible for a product throughout the product
lifecycle. At Seek, our technology and engineering expertise
delivers innovation and disruption in the infrared space. It's a
dynamic environment, so we're looking for a team player with strong
problem-solving skills and the ability to handle multiple
production lines, products and projects.
The Manufacturing Engineer will support existing product lines,
addressing and resolving day-to-day issues to maintain steady
production. Debug test fixtures (software and hardware), evaluate
failures, resolve uncertainties.
Build effective relationships with production team. Conduct
operator training, solicit operator feedback during process
development and for process improvements.
Gather, understand, and act on large amounts of production data.
Develop thorough understanding of Seek infrared camera cores and
how Seek calibration systems work. Use production data to drive
Evaluate existing and new processes, systems, and equipment by
performing analysis, modeling, and technical trade-off studies to
achieve continuous improvement in manufacturing process and
Guide new products throughout the Product Development and New
Product Introduction (NPI) processes, serving as the voice of the
manufacturing customer and driving to optimized DFx.
Set up new production lines, developing and executing on the
following: assembly process, production line layout, assembly tools
/ fixtures, test equipment / systems, work instructions, and
Create labor cost estimates and tooling budgets for project
planning. Track during project execution.
Research and develop new analyses, tests, and assembly
technologies for use in existing and new products.
Resolve issues with non-conforming material through evaluation
and investigation, then propose appropriate dispositions.
Some business travel may be required.
