Process Technician

Full time
Company Summary
We are an exciting, fast-growing biotech company that has changed the rules for how liquids move. Viscous liquids are sticky, and they don’t flow easily—think ketchup, toothpaste, heavy oil, or paint. This creates a lot of waste and inefficiency and handcuffs the way we design. But not anymore. Invented at MIT, our liquid surface technology eliminates the friction between liquids and solids to help liquids flow with ease and enables breakthroughs that used to be impossible.

Who You Are:
Experience working with GMP production and adhering to established GMP SOPs.
Extensive hands-on work in a lab environment.
Excellent teamwork and communication skills.
Experience optimizing chemical processes and reducing variability.
Experience with sample tracking methods and organization.
Proven ability to handle a fast-paced, dynamic environment.
Bachelors or Associates degree in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Biology, Physics or related field preferred.

What You'll Do:
Prepare and characterize lab or pilot-scale batches of propriety coating solutions according to SOPs.
Setup and operate production equipment including mixing tanks, homogenizers, spraying machines, fillers, and more.
Spray, filling and label samples for analysis.
Characterize properties and performance coating solution via rheometer and particle size analyzer.
Document experimental details and prepare reports according to SOPs.
Update SOPs to include process improvements, document deviations from SOPs and consult engineers on course of action.
Troubleshoot equipment and optimize processes to increase efficiency and consistency.
Assist in the development of new test procedures, protocols and spray/fill profiles for new coating formulations.
Manage inventory, order laboratory supplies and perform regular maintenance on lab instruments.
