Assembly Technician

Syracuse, NY
Operations
Full-time
When someone installs Density in a location, they get access to anonymous, accurate, real-time people count. It's a remarkable experience, made possible by the thoughtful assembly and masterful delivery of our proprietary hardware.

The Assembly Technician will touch every aspect of the Density hardware process cycle. This includes: the creation of material subassemblies, operation of production test fixtures, assembly of finished goods, final inspection, and packaging. In this role, your primary objective is to help our team hit, aggressive (yet realistic), throughput goals. You will additionally be tasked to execute design/process validation experiments and prototype builds of future product.

We are looking for someone with a strong mechanical aptitude, demonstrated ability to use hand tools, and great attention to detail.

What we're looking for:

    • Positive attitude and a genuine desire to work with a team, in a fast-paced collaborative environment.
    • Discipline to assemble and test an existing product at volume, per established design and process.
    • Willingness to work independently for significant portions of a production shift, specifically on the batch preparation of material subassemblies and the assembly of finished goods.
    • Ability to learn specific assembly/test processes, through demonstration, verbal instructions, and independent study.
    • Aptitude to interpret engineering specifications/drawings and follow inspection plans using basic metrology tools (calipers).
    • Understanding of material receiving/verification/segregation processes and best practices.
    • Respect for safe working environments through compliance with procedures, rules, and regulations.
    • Appreciation for organization and cleanliness in factory and R&D spaces. Understanding that the little details count in a big way.  

Icing on the cake:

    • Ability to analyze failures and properly report them to the line lead.
    • Comfort with electronics assembly, ESD controls, and visual inspection methods.
    • Knowledge of electrical schematics, circuit board troubleshooting, and basic test equipment.
