Senior Systems Test Engineer

Kforce Technology

This is a Contract position in San Diego, CA posted June 29, 2020.

RESPONSIBILITIES: Kforce has a client in search of a Senior Systems Test Engineer in San Diego, CA.

Overview: The Senior Systems Test Engineer will be responsible for optomechanical test system design and technical leadership to cross functional teams to develop industry-leading DNA sequencing instruments for clinical applications in an exciting, fast-paced environment.

The foundation of all activities for this role is a wide, solid grasp of multiple areas of engineering, physics and molecular biology, and the ability to climb new learning curves quickly.

Primary responsibilities include mapping complex use cases, development of system models/budgets, contributing to system & sub-system architecture designs, and developing test strategies for critical parameter, reliability and verification testing.

The candidate should possess strong optomechanical design, organizational and communication skills to facilitate successful product development across hardware, consumables, firmware, software, and chemistry teams.

Job Activities: Design and develop optomechanical test systems to identify and quantify system sensitivities and failure processes over operational environments Leverage Experimental Design for efficient coverage of complex parameter spaces and physics of failure analysis in the execution of experiments Build the foundation for robust optomechanical system architectures; Create and maintain documents, models, & diagrams describing functional workflows and use cases; Examples include biochemistry workflows, hardware timing diagrams, fault trees, and assembly process workflows Develop system models that guide test system design; These can include system tolerance budgets, performance, degradation, and failure models Support architecture definition by partnering across sub-system design teams to align overlapping design requirements/constraints and drive teams in developing concepts, evaluating risks, and efficiently concluding on a design path Job Requirements: REQUIREMENTS: B.S, M.S.

or Ph.D.
