  • Facilitate installation and assembly of new equipment or tools

  • Use digital tools including Asana, Slack, Confluence, LIMS, and GSuite among others

What you'll bring:

  • High school diploma or equivalent required

  • 4+ years laboratory experience with either wet chemical, analytical testing or processing of powdered materials or an associate degree in an engineering field.

  • Basic chemical hygiene and safety knowledge
