Hadrian - Manufacturing the Future

Hadrian builds software-defined high-precision component factories for the top aerospace companies in the world. We are in search of individuals with the drive to augment manufacturing, helping enable our engineers to build complex, yet elegant software as well as machinists who have a passion for pushing the trade forward.

Position Overview

The Maintenance Engineer is responsible for ensuring the efficient and reliable operation of machinery and equipment within the facility. The team's scope includes the CNC and CMM fleets along with their respective robotics hardware (including vertical loading machines), pre and post-processing equipment (tool setters, bandsaw), general facilities and office systems, and the entire stack of electronic controllers that link hardware to Hadrian's software systems.

Key Responsibilities

    • Perform routine maintenance and troubleshooting of robotic cells and vertical loading machines to minimize downtime and maintain operational efficiency.
    • Handle the electrical wiring setups and modifications necessary for machinery and equipment.
    • Coordinate with vendors for specialized repair services and over-time build an in-house playbook to enable Hadrian to maintain all equipment internally
    • Conduct upgrades and installations related to pneumatics systems to optimize performance.
