As a worldwide provider of digital inkjet technologies, Memjet has offices in San Diego, Dublin, Sydney, and Singapore. We enable Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to achieve fast, high-resolution digital printing by integrating our technology within their existing systems.

An exciting opportunity exists for an experienced full time Process Development Engineer.

 Main focus of the role:

  1. Responsible for owning the printhead shim attach process module and for discovering, designing, developing and deploying it and its related processes for the manufacture of print head products; from conceptual level through to manufacturing implementation.
  2. To advance process technologies thereby enabling creative and innovative product design solutions which can be up-scaled to high volume manufacturing and meet customer's requirement for cost, reliability, quality and performance.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  Tasks include to:

  • Deliver robust printhead shim attach processes to ensure products meet customer requirements.
  • Ensure that the delivered processes comply with design stability and manufacturing control.
  • Identify and resolve knowledge gaps using Rapid Learning Cycles (RLC) to discover and design products that are manufacturing process friendly.
  • Use problem solving methodologies and Design of Experiments (DOEs) to resolve issues, reduce risks and optimize processes.
  • Generate and complete documentation to deliver fully transferable, stable and capable processes.  Examples of documentation include:
    • product and process requirement specifications
    • process work instructions
