Optical Mechanical Technician

Space Micro, San Diego, CA, United States
Employer Description

Space Micro is a fast-paced satellite product company that is looking for candidates who thrive in an exciting and dynamic environment, some of our interesting projects are Government Contracts. 

Potential employees should have a mix of technical expertise and experience and be strongly motivated to achieve technical success on complex engineering projects. Equally as important at Space Micro is that we are looking for self-starting and self-directed candidates who can take a project or assignment and truly "own" it; they can direct themselves day-to-day and keep moving towards to a solution and/or product. The ability to multitask helps significantly since most employees will have a primary project assignment, but also be asked to consult on and review the work done on other projects at the company.

Space Micro has found that potential employees who are used to the large, multi-layered, slow, tech companies (that generate as much paper as they do products) will not truly be suitable for a career at Space Micro. If you like the idea of working on interesting projects and seeing your work from the early "conceptual" stage through to product delivery, then Space Micro will be an interesting place for you to move forward with your career.
