Blue Robotics is looking for an Assembly Technician to join our production team building underwater vehicles, thrusters, lights, sensors, and other products. As the Assembly Technician, each component that you assemble will go out into the world to help explore shipwrecks, study endangered species, map the ocean floor, and generally advance human understanding of the oceans.

Because our customers depend on our products performing consistently when they are out in the field, our manufacturing team is focused on continuous process improvement. For us that means every Assembly Technician is someone who is willing to learn and ask questions, comfortable receiving feedback, and can be trusted to work consistently with minimal supervision. Our processes change as we discover better ways of doing things, so someone who is flexible and able to learn quickly is an ideal fit for this position.

We provide hands-on training and frequent check-ins to ensure you are comfortable and confident following assembly procedures. Within 30 days you will be able to cut cable, strip and tin cable, solder cable onto PCBs, and assemble our core products from start to finish with some assistance. By three months, we expect you to be able to fly solo; assembling products that consistently meet quality standards at the same rate as the rest of the team.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Consistently assemble products that meet quality standards;
  • Complete manufacturing orders in a timely manner;
  • Package and label products;
  • Maintain detailed notes on each job;
  • Report scrap and waste;
  • Maintain an orderly workstation;
  • Follow safety guidelines;
  • Communicate production issues as they arise;
  • Take the initiative to stay up-to-date on production processes;
  • Complete other tasks as needed from time to time

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Able to follow both written and verbal instructions;
  • Comfortable using basic tools (screwdriver, drill, tape gun, etc.);
  • High School diploma or GED;
  • Basic math skills (add, subtract, multiply and divide);

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 1 – 2 years experience soldering and assembling products;
  • Familiarity with 5S principles;
  • Experience working in a warehouse/manufacturing environment;
  • Experience working in a Lean Manufacturing environment a plus!

Physical Requirements:
Assembly Technicians carry trays of products from one workstation to the next to complete assembly. Most work is completed while sitting down, although some workstations require standing. Additionally, this position requires carrying, pulling/pushing, bending, kneeling, stooping, reaching, as well as using basic hand tools. Soldering and assembly require excellent visual capability with or without corrective lenses. Team members will be lifting objects weighing 30 lbs frequently.

Benefits for FT Employees:

  • Flexible scheduling
  • Medical and dental insurance
  • 401(k) Plan with 4% matching
  • Paid vacation hours + paid holidays
  • Paid parental leave
