Veeco / MOCVD equipment Engineer/s / Technician/s needed


Must be a VEECO/MOCVD expert, tool owner, SME, subject matter expert

Possible Aixtron, Veeco / MOCVD equipment technicians may be needed prior to year-end 2019 as well

Veeco machines will be moved into the facility soon and will require this engineer to manage the install. In a nutshell the Engineer will develop Veeco procedures and train all maintenance staff to bring our Veeco equipment knowledge up to the same level as Aixtron reactors.  The Equipment Engineer would most likely be an hourly position; so, any time worked over 40+ a week would be paid at the normal time and a half.  I do not believe that this position will work on our normal compressed schedule and will be a Mon-Fri 7am-4pm/8am-5pm kind of schedule. 

Summary of Role, Primary responsibility is the support of Veeco Epitaxial Reactors and associated equipment by ensuring the availability of the “Critical Components” (Spare parts) too allow for continuous production. Hands on Veeco maintenance, and/or supervision of the maintenance will be required. Other responsibilities will include keeping system drawings up to date after any ECOs have been completed using AutoCAD or Solidworks drawing software. Developing and maintaining Veeco maintenance procedures. Assist in the training and development of maintenance technicians on Veeco platform.
