Production Engineer – Responsibilities:

  • Converting customer-supplied data into programs for production machinery.
  • Competency with Computer Aided Manufacturing packages for printed circuit board assembly. (e.g. Circuit CAM, Factory Logics, Fuji CAM).
  • Knowledge of Printed Circuit Boards and components.
  • Respond to breakdowns and perform maintenance tasks.
  • Strong problem-solving skills and logical approach to breakdowns.
  • Experience working with SMT machines (Siemens desirable but not essential).
