Position Summary

We are looking for a Junior R&D Engineer to work with our engineering team to assist with ourChemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) research and production. You will work both independently and as a second set of hands for our Senior R&D Engineers. You will primarily assist with there search on conductive and waterproof coatings, but there will also be plenty of opportunities to get involved with every other aspect of our process.

What You’ll Do

  • Work closely with Senior R&D Engineers to operate CVD chambers, producing both conductive and waterproof fabrics, and eventually learning to perform depositions independently.
  • Test fabrics for coating robustness, record results, and communicate those results to the Senior R&D Engineer to develop research strategies.
  • Construct heated/biosensing garments with our prototyping team during times ofrapid production.
  • Potentially assist in technical writing for available grants.
