  • Report trouble shooting findings to the instrument development team and help to develop solutions to address root causes.
    Requirements include:
    • M.S. degree with relevant experience or B.S. plus 5+ years of relevant industrial experience.
    • Experience in programming, testing of bioinstrumentation and/or lab automation systems.
    • Demonstrated ability to understand and successfully work across multiple disciplines such as engineering, software and assay development teams.
    • Proficient technical writing skills and excellent documentation skills for experimental work and data analysis.
    • Experience in liquid handler robots and their programming languages (e.g., Hamilton, Tecan, Eppendorf, OEMs) is preferred.
    • Highly motivated, team-oriented and detailed individual with the proven ability to think innovatively toward solving problems effectively and efficiently.
      We offer a competitive and comprehensive employee benefits package, including daily lunch, health, dental, vision, life insurance, a flexible spending plan, paid vacation, stock options and a 401(k) plan.
