Are you a recent Math or Physics grad? Do you enjoy solving problems and discovering how things work? Newgrange Design, located in Wakefield, MA, is looking to add an Entry Level PCB Design Assistant position to join our growing team of excellent designers.
We will train the new hire from the ground up and no prior experience in electronics is needed. We are looking for a team player, someone who is hardworking, friendly, energetic and eager to learn.
The first several months are spent in training and are meant to provide some of the fundamentals of the PCB design process (which is a hybrid between electrical and mechanical engineering that builds on the skill sets developed in the math and physics major). After some training, this person will begin assisting our design team, developing CAD (Computer Aided Design) models, and aiding in our QA processes, among other important tasks. Once trained, the exciting, challenging, and ever changing world of developing new electronic products opens up. Projects we work on are used in medicine, scientific research, alternative energy, consumer products, defense, and many other fields.
This position is best suited for someone with very good organizational skills and someone who cares compulsively about the quality of their work. The nature of the work can be exacting at times, so a strong attention to detail is a must. The ideal candidate would also be a fast learner, flexible, and a good problem solver, as we handle many different types of projects that each offer unique challenges.
Great personal and communication skills are important for both internal and external interaction. The Design Assistant must be able to speak and write clearly when describing complicated issues, whether it is in person, over the phone or through email.
- BS or BA with a Math or Physics (or related) major
- 0-3 years experience
- Must be a U.S. Citizen and/or Permanent U.S. Resident
- Full-time hourly position ($20/hour)
- Health and Dental insurance
