Job Description

Mechatronics Engineer

Contract Position 12+ months, M-F 40 hours weekly

Our client is seeking the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers – to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics.

Job Mission

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Primary role will be a Mechatronics Engineer in the New Product Design & Development Team.
  • Responsible for design and development of custom mechatronics systems, including translating stages, linear motors, sensors, servos, etc….
  • Design quality products using six sigma and lean process techniques for robust designs.
  • Experience with understanding and troubleshooting legacy designs to determine potential new risks, failure modes, and corrective actions for new products.
  • Participate in “sustaining engineering” tasks, resolving equipment design issues in a timely fashion as they arise at customer sites.
  • Integration of industrial robotics into capital equipment, developing with the cross sector team all related aspects such as dynamics, end effector design, controls, etc….
  • Basic experience with mechatronics behavior predictive modeling and methods, including “first principle” engineering equations and other techniques.
  • Take direction from Client System Architects and Senior Engineering mentors who are leading the development effort of critical large capital equipment.
  • Create documentation and Statements of Work for new product design and operation to be used in a clean Manufacturing Environment

Work with external suppliers to define and develop certain aspects of new product design while collaborating with internal cross discipline teams.


The ideal candidate needs to have a deep understanding of mechatronics, control theory systems and servo tuning to be incorporated into end product

  • Mechatronics engineering background or specialization in closely related areas such as robotics, or other fields.
  • Strong skills in proof of concept development and design of experiments for a wide range of project needs.
  • Ability to run complex mechatronic systems for test and qualification of design changes.
  • Demonstrated ability to derive conclusions from analysis and to make practical recommendations.
  • Exposure to multi-disciplinary projects, such as imaging / optical systems, semiconductor, or lithography preferred but not required.
  • Strong technical writing and communication skills, including the ability to present results based on strong statistical evidence to audiences of a wide range of technical abilities


MS or PhD Degree with 2 to 5+ years of experience and an Engineering Degree in Mechatronics, Mechanical, Electrical or similar.

Personal skills

  • Customer oriented team player willing to work with high level problem solvers on a daily basis.
  • Genuine interest in mechatronics engineering, and analysis, as well as in developing precision systems that can perform reliably at customer sites
  • High energy, self-motivated, quick study with flexible nature.
  • Customer-centric personal ethos.
  • Self-motivated team player with strong desire to learn and ability to handle multiple projects and tasks concurrently and with minimal guidance.
  • High potential to develop into a technical or personal leader in the organization.
