WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR
We’re looking for a curious and creative individual with a strong foundation in science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics with a passion for learning. Ideally someone with a background in polymers, machinery or testing that loves to work with their hands to create and test new concepts. This is a hands-on role that enables the development of new methods of make while supporting research and development of product innovations in our established manufacturing methods.

An Innovator 1 needs to have the ability to work independently operating equipment in a test lab and manufacturing like environment with a high regard for safety. They should have good written and verbal communication, high attention to detail, good mechanical aptitude, and apply systematic problem-solving skills.

You will operate complex machinery and assist with troubleshooting and development of equipment. You will run various test equipment to confirm quality specifications, enable process development and validate new concepts.

Every day brings something new and ranges from large sample runs while maintaining quality standards, machinery setup/cleanup, design reviews, general lab operations, mechanically testing concepts and brainstorming creative solutions. Most days are a mix of activities and requires changing hats or ways of thinking throughout the day.


WHO YOU WILL WORK WITH
You will work closely with other process innovators assisting in the lab.
