Required Skills
  • Track record of designing MEMS/microsystems device components or systems in industry or graduate school, from concept to prototype or product.
  • Strong foundation in analysis and design of microscale systems involving multiple coupled physical domains (electrostatic, electromagnetic, piezoelectric, piezoresistive, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, structural mechanics, etc.)
  • At least basic knowledge of FEM tools (preferably COMSOL) and CAD software.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills and the ability to work independently and/or cross-functionally.
  • Detail orientation, excellent adherence to scientific method, strong work ethic and outcome-focused attitude.
  • Master’s or PhD degree, 3+ years of work experience.
  • Conceptualize, design and successively refine new approaches or improvements to subsystems or components of our revolutionary first device.
  • Explore new manufacturing processes that enable device advancements with the potential to ultimately incorporate into AMP.
  • Perform analytical modeling and/or FEM simulations of designs including multiple coupled physical domains.
  • Design and execute hands-on experiments to evaluate design solutions with very fast iteration cycles in our R&D lab and Hybrid Fab.
  • Perform analysis and characterization using advanced metrology tools such as SEM/EDS, CT scan, optical profilometer, etc.
  • Contribute to the development of custom test and measurement setups to characterize experimental prototypes.
  • Carefully document design decisions, experimental results, measurements, etc. and maintain ownership of all documentation consistent with the Atomic Machines Product Development Process.
  • Work collaboratively in cross-functional engineering teams with contributors from Materials Processing, Process Engineering, Manufacturing, Software, and other disciplines.
  • Design for manufacturing in conjunction with other teams to help improve or add to the set of AMP capabilities.
