Job Type


As the Engineering Technician, you will be responsible for crafting, prototyping, and testing solutions that help solve our customers’ most difficult hardware assembly challenges. This role is a hybrid of hacker and patient maker– someone who can quickly build and test complex parts and assemblies, and then turn around and provide practical feedback to improve function and manufacturing techniques. The ultimate candidate makes informed design suggestions to team engineers and clients that help build and iterate the best possible products.

Here are some qualities we look for in an Engineering Technician:

  • Passion for helping clients develop new products and to continually improve the process of product development
  • Proficiency building prototypes with techniques such as 3D printing, laser cutting, manual milling, casting, and soldering
  • Understanding of scalable manufacturing methods such as CNC machining, injection molding, ultrasonic welding, stamping, and heat staking
  • Relevant experience building and assembling complex integrated assemblies, requiring both an extremely high attention to detail and fine motor skills
  • Excellent team communication skills
  • Ability to prioritize tasks across multiple parallel projects
