  • Effectively utilize Statistical Process Control (SPC) as well as critical thinking to efficiently problem solve
  • Specify, maintain, and program metrology equipment such as CMMs, profilometers, and optical comparators
  • Organize and plan inspection activities to maximize measurement equipment utilization
  • Support internal and external calibration activities

What you'll bring:

  • Experienced in ISO9001, ISO/TS 16949, APQP, PPAP, SPC, CAD
  • Strong aptitude with electronic test and measurements systems
  • Advanced understanding of measurement system analysis, sampling plans, and hypothesis testing
  • Proficiency in reading and interpreting mechanical drawings and wiring diagrams
  • Structured problem-solving (8D) and analytical skills, including strong technical skills in statistical tools, Design of Experiments (DOE), Process Capability (Cpk, Ppk), etc.
  • Ability to work well in a dynamic, fast-paced environment while remaining detail-oriented with strong record-keeping and organizational skills
