The ideal candidate will be self-motivated, system focused and a team player. Being an electronics test technician at Gamry involves varied work. You will assemble and test Gamry Instruments products using Windows based PCs running our custom test software. You need to be skilled in surface mount soldering/desoldering, often under a microscope. You also need to be comfortable running semi-automated test procedures on a computer. When a test fails, the test technician should be able to diagnose simple problems like unsoldered components, missing or incorrect components, or bad test connections.
In this position you will be joining a team of technicians. An electronics test technician must be able to fix complex circuitry problems found by other techs. Gamry's high precision/high speed analog and digital circuits are quite challenging. You must be able to use DVMs, signal generators, and oscilloscopes and understand engineering theory, units and terminology. Analog debugging skills at both the system and component level and surface mount soldering/desoldering skills are essential. You must have knowledge of op amps, A/D and D/A converters, transistor circuits, and switching power supplies. Experience should be in a production test environment – ideally with an instrumentation firm. You may also design, build, and modify test fixtures, and, if capable, modify test code and procedures. You may also be involved in repair. You must communicate well with engineering, manufacturing management, and the rest of the manufacturing test staff.
This job operates in a professional office and testing environment. This position requires good technical English, and the ability to communicate verbally and in writing. Work will be at the Gamry offices in Warminster, PA, given the focus on developmental hardware.
