Job Description

Electric Hydrogen’s mission is to make molecules to decarbonize our world! 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, improve, validate and scale up inspection tools and methods for our electrolyzer manufacturing processes. You will work within the engineering team responsible for product and process development lifecycles, and accelerate our launch into manufacturing.

You will be a necessary enabler of product and process quality by working with different groups at the company to develop 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 product.

You will be in Devens, MA and reporting to the Manager of Manufacturing Process Engineering. This is an onsite position with some travel necessary to other sites.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Guide the development of new inline manufacturing metrology from proof-of-concept to high-volume production and to ensure improved processing, performance, quality, and cost.
  • Work with R&D and process team members to define inspection points and methods to ensure the reliability of the product and manufacturing process.
  • Develop IQC, IPQC, and 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 improve metrology
  • Promote metrology installation and commissioning on new production lines and work with suppliers
  • Define inspection specifications required for allowing gauge capable metrology tools to support production processes.
  • Perform gauge capability/R&R, tool matching, and measurement uncertainty studies for metrology tools
  • Support metrology measurements for engineering DOEs for process optimization
  • Train technicians on the maintenance and repair of the inline metrology systems
