What you’ll do:
The Manufacturing Test Engineer is responsible for the manufacturing test infrastructure for all eero hardware products. Their role starts from early concept prototype builds and continues through sustaining production and reverse logistics while maintaining an infrastructure which touches manufacturing partners through our cloud to our data team. A passion for continuous process improvement is required to continually reduce cycle time and increase test coverage by implementing best practices and using production and field data to make design decisions.
We’re looking for someone who can:
- Own factory test line at FATP; Develop software ecosystem consisting of physical test controllers, big data reporting systems, cutting-edge security certificate management, and cloud infrastructure
- Define modular test strategies and limit implementation, analyze new product testability and deliver test solutions to support the new product introduction process at eero’s manufacturing partner
- Develop, qualify, and execute RF system testing, board level calibration, desense testing, power testing, and ensure production control processes, data analysis/ interpretation GR&R, Cp/Cpk and correlation analysis are employed
- Automate a wide variety of processes, using techniques such as virtual test environments, automated optical inspection, radio validation, electrical testing, interoperability assessment, and robotics automation
- Compile and analyze production test data using automated and exploration / visual big data analysis techniques
- Drive factory test quality improvements and test savings through corrective actions by monitoring functional test yield and leading weekly in-region calls with factory.
- Guide the hardware; test fixtures are the vehicle to interact with DUT. Ensure fixture design is aligned to cost, scale, and schedule. Engage in RFQ between eero, test vendor, and CM for best end to end testing solution.
- Travel to Asia to deliver test solutions to manufacturing partner and work with In-Region counterparts at CM to help triage and resolve issues
- Introduce test processes, monitor functional test yield and take corrective actions to drive continuous smooth production
- Expand the current Python test software code base for next generation products
- Provide feedback to eero Hardware and Software/Firmware development teams to ensure future products are designed for efficient and high quality manufacturing
- Lead DOEs to root-cause test-station related failures isolating to DUT, setup, or implementation.
- Communicate project status updates to various project stakeholders, including team members and executives within eero and OEMs
- Attention to detail without becoming lost in the details
Minimum required skills & traits:
- 3-6 years technical work experience in high volume manufacturing consumer electronics with wireless connectivity. Demonstrated experience in development or maintenance of manufacturing test or test fixture.
- 3+ years of software programming experience in a Linux for machine controllers
- Experience with RF products will be a plus
- BS Degree in Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering or Mechatronics
- Experience programming in Python
- Familiar experience with Linux, git, and all of the standard UNIX command-line tools
- Well versed in production factory facility for Final Assembly, Test, and Packout (FATP)
- Natural bias towards documentation; use of defect tracking systems (Jira) and Document control (arena)
- Mandarin or Vietnamese skills a plus
- Exceptional communication skills - verbal, written and technical communication in English
At eero we believe the foundation of home technology has been broken for far too long. After years of slowly waving laptops around in hopes of a better signal, we couldn’t take it anymore. So in 2014, we assembled a team of the brightest engineers and designers with a singular goal: make WiFi so great it disappears. And that’s just what we’ve done. eero is simpler, performs better, and is more intelligent than any WiFi solution on earth. For the first time, WiFi is reliable enough to cover every room in the home and allows people to move on with their lives.
