Process Engineer

Boulder , Colorado , United States



Posted: Dec 2, 2020

Weekly Hours: 40

Role Number: 200209985

The panel process and optics (PPO) team crafts and develops groundbreaking display technologies to support Apple's phenomenal product line. This includes total optimization & integration of display materials, optical systems, and processes to deliver outstanding optical, mechanical, and reliability performances. The team features a collaborative and hands-on environment that cultivates engineering excellence, creativity, and innovation. As part of the Apple design and development team you will be working with some of the smartest and most hardworking people in the field, and will be chipping in to exciting new products that will touch the lives of millions and enrich your career with invaluable experience. We are looking for a skilled process engineer with a proven track record of process implementation, optimization, control and sustaining as applied to prototyping products that have groundbreaking optical applications. More specifically, we are looking for an engineer who has experience working with polymers and adhesives, dispense processes used in their application and the different types of systems used in their curing. It is a strong advantage for this candidate to have experience in tooling design for process cells, material carriers and sophisticated optical test systems. It would also be desirable to have experience in the use of optical test systems, data analysis and a background in process monitoring. More broadly, we are looking for an engineer who has experience working in a highly technical and highly flexible, low volume manufacturing environment. A successful candidate will work within a multi-functional team and with external vendors to design, develop, and support process and tooling development efforts for our next-generation processes and supporting tools/equipment.
