Newgrange Design, an electrical engineering services company located in Wakefield, MA, is looking to add an Entry Level Design Assistant to join our growing team of excellent designers. The only requirement is a college degree showing an interest and aptitude in Math or Physics.
No prior experience in electronics is needed. We will train the new hire in this field.
The first several months are spent in training and are meant to provide some of the fundamentals of the PCB design process (which is a hybrid between electrical and mechanical engineering and drafting). After some training, this person will begin assisting our design team, developing CAD (Computer Aided Design) models, and aiding in our QA processes, among other important tasks. Once trained, the exciting, challenging, and ever changing world of developing new electronic products opens up. Projects we work on are used in medicine, scientific research, alternative energy, consumer products, defense, and many other fields.
This position is best suited for someone with very good organizational skills and someone who cares compulsively about the quality of their work. The nature of the work can be tedious at times, so a strong focus and attention to detail is a must. The ideal candidate would also be a fast learner, flexible, and a good problem solver, as we handle many different types of projects that each offer unique challenges.
Great personal and communication skills are important for both internal and external interaction. The Design Assistant must be able to listen attentively and speak and write clearly when describing complicated issues, whether it is in person, over the phone or through email.
We are looking for a team player, someone who is hardworking, friendly, energetic and eager to learn.
BS or BA with a Math or Physics (or related) major
0-3 years experience
Must be a U.S. Citizen and/or Permanent U.S. Resident
