Zebra Technologies Test Engineer, Senior Manufacturing in Agoura Hills, California
As a Sr. Test Engineer, you will be empowered and inspired to contribute to our mission for delivering optimized test solutions in support of new product introductions (NPI) into selected manufacturing locations, while supporting legacy test equipment and managing engineering production changes and provide production support. You will interface directly with various design teams to define test methodology for current and future generation products. You will be involved in the entire NPI (new product introduction) process that starts at feasibility, DFT, test coverage analysis to test process deployment that meet Zebra’s quality standards. At the same time, you will constantly work to identify areas to maximize efficiency, test yield and minimize test cost.
Actively participate in the new product design evaluation process while collaborating with New Product Introduction (NPI) teams on the design, development and deployment of new test platforms and technologies.
Provide constant NPI build status to project team, summarizing possible problems and feedback about test solutions utilized
Participate in cross core functional teams through NPI phased gates
Liaison between development team and test development vendors located overseas or locally and oversee introduction of test solutions to production floor
Drive design for test (DFT) methodology by providing feedback and requirements to the various design centers product teams during the design development phase to assure testability, test coverage while reducing cost of test.
Innovate new test methodologies and technologies to reduce development time and manufacturing costs through familiarity with the product, its architecture, and its design methodology
Develop manufacturing test plan of assembly’s (i.e. PCBA, sub-assembly) and participate in test development concept reviews while managing project timelines to ensure quoted test solution is cost effective, on schedule and on budget.
Work with diverse worldwide teams in multiple functional roles to support production ramps while addressing any production issues to allow for seamless product releases
Demonstrate Project Management, Continuous Improvement Methods (Six Sigma), Lean Principles skills for test equipment qualification, test system problem solving and identify continuous improvement opportunities to implement cost and lead time reduction initiatives, while improving yields and quality
Participate in NPI and process improvement activities with Design, PE, TE, & Manufacturing
Provide sustaining manufacturing technical support assisting production teams to resolve crisis downtime situations
Initiate Capital Expense and procurement requests
Perform all other essential duties as assigned.
