About Us:

Since our start in 1982, we have been pioneering state-of-the-art composite manufacturing operations, earning us numerous awards for the creative use of composite materials and production methods in the building materials and commercial art industries. We have had the distinct opportunity to work with world renown artists, engineers, and architects in the design and construction of building facades, blockbuster movie sets, as well as the rehabilitation of historical US landmarks, and much more.

We are known for using advanced composite manufacturing techniques to solve complex construction challenges; we have even worked on a project to create tools that measure dark matter.  We are inspired, challenged, and empowered to be and give our best every day, not only because we are each exceptional at what we do, but also because we are surrounded by passionate, driven people who bring their best to the table every day.  We are teammates - key members of a deeply collaborative culture built on mutual respect, innovation, and teamwork, and we are encouraged to learn, be creative, invent, and share our knowledge - to thrive.

Recently, we opened a facility on Mare Island in Vallejo, California, as we are embarking on a new, incredibly unique multi-year project to help construct the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art.

About this Opportunity:

As a Senior Digital Fabrication Design Engineer and Robotics Programmer, you will join a growing team supporting our newly developed and exclusive fabrication process. We will rely on you to quickly acclimate to our proprietary equipment, software and materials, and efficiently digitally model and fabricate molds, patterns, and products.  Communication is key in this role - your ability to understand and relay production needs, collaborate with other team members, and adhere to timelines is essential in optimizing the output and workflow of the digital fabrication arm of our manufacturing process.

Some of the Things You Will Do:

  • Research, develop, and document new modeling and machining techniques, methods, standards, and procedures to continuously improve efficiency and quality of output.
  • Develop mold geometry for machining from fabrication models of finished parts and assemblies.
  • Perform long-term management and revision control of fabrication models to accurately manage design updates and the addition of fabrication information.

  • Demonstrate "digital craftsmanship" and an understanding of the underlying geometry and data structures representing geometry in CAD/CAM software.

  • Create toolpaths for parts based on daily schedules.

  • Communicate fabrication information via dimensioned drawings based on shop needs and project requirements, as well as models and sketches provided by the project design team.

  • Prepare and distribute QC documents and technical drawings to ensure the product fabrication quality standards are met.

  • Participate in cross-training with existing staff, train new employees, and assist with improving existing training documents as needed.

  • Proactively participate in start of shift meetings to set daily production goals, and coordinate efforts with downstream stakeholders to ensure optimal workflow and throughput are consistently achieved.

What We’re Looking For:

  • 7 or more years of experience in 3D modeling, preferably with Rhino, in an industrial manufacturing or custom fabrication environment.
  • Fluency with CAD software
  • Intermediate-level experience with CAM software, preferably Powermill.
  • Operating complex, multi-axis CNC or robotic equipment is a huge plus.

Some of the Things We Offer:

  • Health Insurance
  • Dental Insurance

  • Paid Time Off

  • Seven Paid Holidays

  • Simple IRA (eligible after one year of employment)

  • Opportunity to study and become a Certified Composite Technician (CCT)
