The Device Development team is a small group of engineers and technicians responsible for forward-looking R&D to boost the efficiency and manufacturability of Alta's III-V photovoltaic solar cell technology. We currently hold the world record for sunlight-to-electricity conversion efficiency for single-junction solar cells under non-concentrated sunlight.
The Device Development team is seeking a highly motivated engineer to own existing and new characterization techniques and tools, with an emphasis on multijunction photovoltaic devices. Tool ownership requires technical skills, responsibility, resourcefulness, and excellent communication.
Responsible for the design, analysis, programming, debugging, testing, and modification of controls designs related to automated capital equipment; define the system control architecture, review electrical schematics, and ensure that system is safety compliant.
Train and direct Quality Inspector engaged in measuring and testing product and tabulating data concerning materials, product and process quality; develop and initiate standards and methods for inspection, testing, and evaluation.
Develop, lead and maintain the safety and regulatory compliance program for products we manufacture and sell, including Conflict Minerals compliance to Dodd-Frank Law, EU RoHS directive & REACH SVHC environmental regulations, etc.
