Requirements
  • B.S. degree in engineering; mechanical, manufacturing engineering, aerospace, industrial, or related/equivalent field.
  • 3+ years experience in an engineering management or engineering team leadership role.
  • 5+ years of technical skills, preferably experience in manufacturing engineering roles for complex electro-mechanical product industrialization at scale, including machined, sheet metal, injection molded, PCBA, linear motors, LCD, cables, and plastic components.
  • Experience with remotely managed NPI and contract manufacturers, including transitioning high accuracy products from prototype to mass production.
  • Expertise in production quality metrics, GD&T, and process/equipment qualification procedures.
  • Proficient in methods for statistical analysis (e.g. DOE, comparison testing, Gage R&R), structured problem solving (e.g. A3, 8D, DMAIC), fault-tree), and process control (e.g. statistical process control, process capability Cp/Cpk).
  • Willing to work onsite, in a fast paced environment, and occasionally coordinate with colleagues in different time zones during late evening local hours.
  • Travel to vendors, suppliers, and production facilities (mostly in China) from time to time (~10-20%)
Responsibilities
  • Lead the activities of a team of manufacturing engineering professionals responsible for supporting an extended team of global manufacturing, supply chain, quality professionals.
  • Ongoing sustainment of manufacturing lines at our contract manufacturers + transition into production and support.
  • Characterize process & product failures on our manufacturing line, root cause investigations, corrective actions, and mistake-proofing at suppliers and contract manufacturers for component/module/product new builds and refurbishments.
  • Own manufacturing process (e.g. assembly, printer calibration, verification testing, etc.) control and issue prevention; implementing tools, equipment and process methods to ensure industry-leading reliability, quality, and yield.
  • Drive team collaboration and support across projects/programs as a player coach on complex engineering and operational challenges.
  • Own manufacturing technical readiness as a critical member of our cross-functional NPI teams, with specific emphasis on manufacturing return of experience, producibility, cost effectiveness, industrialization; negotiate conflicting requirements, identify lessons-learned and DFM/DFA/DFSS opportunities and share/escalate to upstream design engineers and downstream sustaining engineers.
  • Manage the details of transition into manufacturing or industrialization, including resolution of first article inspections (FAI) and product/fixture assembly issues; drive maturity of manufacturing readiness; secure mass production capacity, throughput, yield, and process capability.

Formlabs is reinventing 3D printing by expanding access to digital fabrication, so anyone can make anything.
