Job Info

MSP's Turbo-Vaporizers™ use a droplet vaporization, direct liquid injection technique. Our vaporizers use advanced technology in aerosol science and thermo-dynamics to create a more refined solution to vaporizing liquids. In thin film applications, our Turbo-Vaporizers' stable and uniform vapor leads to a higher quality thin film and higher wafer yields with less down time. MSP's Vaporizers provide faster response time, high precision flow control, are able to operate at high temperatures, and are built with a clog-resistant design.

The Lead Engineerwill be responsible for design, development and technical support of Vaporizers and related products. You will play a lead technical role in the project team applying theory to solve challenges with respect to development and commercialization of technology related to MSPs Vaporizer Products. Among other skills, this person requires a working knowledge of mathematical and flow modeling tools, thermodynamics of single-phase flows. A successful candidate will demonstrate a thorough understanding of a focused and highly disciplined approach to engineering project work and independently solves complex problems associated with the design, development and manufacturing of products. You must effectively communicate in cross functional teams that span all engineering disciplines, marketing, sales, and production.
