Working in our ASTRON product line the candidate will design reactive gas generators. This
includes enclosures, cooling and packaging of there associated high power electronics. Heat
transfer and fluid flow are especially important to successful designs. Products are designed
to be reliable, cost effective and manufacturable. Design schedules are typically very
aggressive. The successful candidate will be a creative design Engineer while at the same time
being a stickler for details.
