Manufacturing Technician

Pittsburgh, PA
Full Time
Entry Level

Manufacturing is changing, and we need the best people on the job. 

At Opulo, we’re changing the way folks bring their product to market. Our machines facilitate mid-scale manufacturing, where you make your product at a moderate scale before making the risky and expensive jump to mass production. 

As a Manufacturing Technician, you will not only help fabricate and assemble our machines, but you’ll use those machines themselves to build them. You’ll get your hands into every aspect of production, from operating the pick and place, debugging and fixing PCBAs, building machine subassemblies, running quality tests, to packaging and managing orders.

If you want to be a part of changing manufacturing, we want you to join us as a Manufacturing Technician.
