Since 2003, SparkFun has been helping turn ideas into reality – whether you’re creating a smart weather station, exploring the frontier of machine learning, building a robot for school or prototyping your first (or tenth) product. No matter your vision or skill level, our open source components, resources and online tutorials are designed to broaden access to innovative technology and make the road to a finished project shorter.
We are an equal opportunity employer that values a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture. SparkFun offers an abundance of opportunities to learn new skills from other Funions, in addition to many other benefits and perks.
This position resides in The Board Assembly Team. The Board Assembly team is a subset of the Production Department. The Board Assembly team is responsible for the creation of over 350 unique PCB assemblies that are crucial to the sustenance of SparkFun's product offerings. The team is comprised of many unique individuals, each bringing their own set of skills and abilities. Quality, consistency, and efficiency are the driving metrics within The Board Assembly team.
The SMT Machine Operator is responsible for running a variety of pieces of machinery including stencil printers, pick and place machines, reflow ovens, selective solder machines, board washers, and automated optical inspection(AOI) machines. This is the start of the overall board assembly process, and is an integral one in setting the pace for the rest of the assembly process.
Working closely with all other members of The Board Assembly Team, the SMT Machine Operator will ensure that SparkFun built products are available for sale at all times, and replenished as quickly as possible when they run out.
The SMT Machine Operator is expected to perform all necessary duties and responsibilities required to ensure a steady flow of products off of the automated assembly line in a timely matter. The SMT Machine Operator is expected to work with general supervision, getting assistance from other operators/managers when needed. Must be able to assist others when needed, especially an operator-in-training. Must demonstrate excellence in communication and problem solving in a team environment. Prior PCB assembly equipment operations experience is not required. We will train the candidate that is best fit for the position.
