Job Description

Electric Hydrogen’s mission is to create an abundant and decarbonized material future. Our outstanding people are our most important asset and will allow us to deliver hydrogen from renewable electrolysis for heavy industry, at prices below fossil fuels. 

We have an exciting and challenging opportunity for a Metrology and Characterization Engineer to join our team of qualified, diverse individuals. As a Metrology and Characterization Engineer you will invent, develop, optimize, validate and scale up inspection tools and methods for our electrolyzer manufacturing processes. You will work within a cross-functional engineering team responsible for product and process development lifecycles, and accelerate our launch into manufacturing.

You will be a key enabler of product and process quality by working with different groups at the company to define and implement inspection points across our manufacturing processes. You will dive into the technical details of the product to develop inspection methods and the metrology equipment needed to perform these inspections at scale. Your contributions will ensure we are manufacturing a safe and robust product.

This position will be in Natick, MA. This is an onsite position with some travel necessary to other sites.

Core Duties and Responsibilities

  • Drive the development of innovative inline manufacturing metrology from proof-of-concept to high-volume production and to enable improved processing, performance, quality, and cost.
  • Work with R&D and process stakeholders to define inspection points and methods to ensure the reliability of the product and manufacturing process.
  • Develop IQC, IPQC, & FQC requirements and set metrics on analyzing performance
  • Expect a hands-on approach with pilot process equipment to understand the process fundamentals and use that knowledge to continuously improve metrology
  • Drive metrology installation and commissioning on new production lines and interact with suppliers
  • Define inspection specifications required for enabling gauge capable metrology tools to support production processes.
