Experience with test equipment such as shakers, shock testers, laser doppler vibrometers, centrifuges, thermal chambers, or other similar test capabilities.
Computer programming skills, especially MATLAB, and experience programming electronic interfaces with test equipment and data acquisition.
Experience with data analysis and a general understanding of Digital Signal Processing.

Qualifications We Desire:

Academic or professional experience in MEMS.
Custom test fixture development, including CAD design and 3D printing.
Experience with tester development for production level rigor activities.
Experience in a structured manufacturing environment, such as private industry or another SNL production environment.
Demonstrated ability to diagnose equipment malfunctions and communicate findings and solutions to external vendors and/or engineers.
Ability to conceive and propose ideas for process improvement through troubleshooting to overcome challenges.
Strong oral, written, interpersonal and problem-solving skills, including the ability to collaborate in a diverse team environment and develop positive relationships.
