New Product Integrated Engineer
Full time weekday hours
Based in Eynsham, Head Office (OX29 4TP)
We are seeking a New Product Integration Engineer to join our innovative optical company that is developing glasses using adaptive focus lenses. The glasses will be an alternative to varifocals, and we’ve already trialled them and got a great response from both wearers and opticians. Come and help us launch them.
You will be working with a team of highly motivated and enthusiastic individuals who are all working towards a common goal, but we always make sure that we have fun along the way, with regular group activities and social events.
Your role within the team
You will be part of a cross-functional team, enabling component understanding and providing feedback to the design, process development and operations teams. You will lead the development, qualification and implementation of new and existing manufacturing processes.
As the NPI Engineer, you will be responsible for managing internal process equipment, fixturing and reporting to the wider team. The role therefore requires close and efficient coordination with the design and manufacturing teams and liaison with third party suppliers. Additionally, the role will require flexibility and where appropriate, support testing of components and sub-assemblies.
What you will be working on
- Manage projects from initial design concept through to the final release of product
- Lead CAPA projects to get to the root cause of any potential issues and implement corrective actions
- Tooling (jigs & fixtures) design & development
- Perform process validations (IQ/OQ/PQ etc.)
- Work with design & development to ensure products meet Design for Manufacture requirements
- Evaluate new process/NPI concepts
- Prepare manufacturing documentation and create and maintain a record of technical documentation
Key knowledge and expertise you can bring to the role
Ideally you would have a minimum of five years experience in a similar role and experience with optical components would be a real advantage for this role. That experience should include working with a variety of manufacturing techniques and materials, working closely with a development team and a knowledge of applying validation processes for equipment and test methods.
Additionally, you will have a working knowledge of statistical techniques and Six Stigma software and have first class experimental and investigation skills.
- Eligible to work in the UK, though we will continue sponsorship for anyone who is already here.
- Bachelors / Masters Degree in a Mechanical Engineering or Design discipline preferred, or related subject
