INFICON is headquartered in Switzerland and has world-class manufacturing facilities in Europe, the United States and China with subsidiaries located throughout the world. This position will be located at INFICON's U.S. headquarters in East Syracuse, NY. For more detailed information about INFICON, please visit our website at www.inficon.com.
TheEngineering verification and Validation group is a new cross functional team made up of various engineering, chemistry and physics backgrounds. The group's primary function is to own the system level verification testing of all new INFICONproducts. The team will also verify modifications, replacement of any critical portion of the core measurement sub system. The team aids the marketing and operation departments in root cause analysis of non-compliant products, and to develop lasting resolutions. The group members also participate in the concept phase of new product developments.
The candidate will apply diverse skills and experiences to triage issues in a wide range of INFICON's gas analysis products. This includes the ability to systematically reproduce, diagnose, and characterize failure mechanisms of product hardware and software issues related to instrumentation for gas analysis. Because issues can be mechanical, electrical, or software in origin, the candidate is expected to seek out assistance from the appropriate INFICON Scientists and engineers of all disciplines, and to communicate well with the marketing and operations departments. The candidate need not be an expert in all fields, but be able to learn quickly from subject matter experts as needed.
The candidate will have to take ownership of issues and facilitate their resolution. Continuous improvement will result from addressing issues systematically by developing processes, ongoing documentation, and facilitating transferring knowledge across functional departments.
Required Education and Experience:
A Bachelor's degree in Material Science, Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or related technical area required. A Master's or PhD highly preferred in Analytical Physics or Chemistry.
Ability to troubleshoot to a system or component level on complex tools involving medium and high vacuum pumps and systems, gasses and pressure
Extensive experience in gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, vacuum physics, and spectroscopy.
Hands-on experience operating and maintaining pumping stations, residual gas analyzers, vacuum pressure gauges, pressurized gas cylinders for vacuum testing is a plus
Must be mechanically inclined with some Electronics background
Software programming experience for running experiments and tests (e.g.LabVIEW) is a plus.
Must be highly organized in order to manage multiple topics in parallel and self-starting.
Must be able to work well in cross-functional teams and have excellent interpersonal skills, demonstrating a positive attitude and interaction with the internal team and customers.
Ability to work in an agile, fast pace environment.
