Process Integration Engineer

Berkeley, CA

Our mission at Atomic Machines is to bring autonomous bits-to-atoms manufacturing of anything at any scale to the world, and we are well on our way. We are developing an entirely new class of manufacturing foundry for micro- and nano-scale machines, and we are using that foundry to create products the world has heretofore been unable to build. Our first device has exceptionally strong and large-scale product-market fit: it is both iconic of what our platform can do and a driver of very significant enterprise scale.

Joining forces with us means becoming part of an incredibly talented, inventive and passionate multi-disciplinary team running hard to make our platform, devices and vision a reality. You will have the opportunity to help define the company from its earliest days. You’ll be challenged to learn and grow as a builder and a leader as the company itself grows rapidly. And you will receive significant equity compensation - you’ll truly be a company owner and benefit financially from our overall success.

Our offices are located in Berkeley and Santa Clara, California.

About this Role:

We are seeking an innovative engineer to develop and integrate novel fabrication processes to create best-in-class commercial devices. In this role you will bring your experience in microfabrication and complex process flows to go from raw materials to fully packaged devices, while supporting Design for X (DfX, where X is a suite of advanced manufacturing process tools). You will apply your first-principles and cross-cutting knowledge of mechanical, chemical, and materials engineering in the fast-paced, multidisciplinary setting of our hybrid semi-automated fab. At the same time, you will contribute critically to our mission to revolutionize manufacturing by translating processes to our unique digital autonomous platform at scale.


What You'll Do:

  • Develop process flow for major device subsystems, driving continuous improvement through defining, monitoring, and controlling fabrication processes.
  • Work hands-on with manual and semi-automated tools to conduct manufacturing experiments and process reliability testing; interpret, analyze, and report results.
  • Work cross-functionally with technicians, product engineers, and quality engineers to improve process flow to meet commercial targets.
  • Leverage thin-film processes (e.g., bonding, plasma, electrochemical, PVD) to engineer surfaces and create multilayer structures.
  • Apply metrology techniques to evaluate materials and components (e.g., radiography, SEM, optical imaging, and profilometry).
  • Perform complementary testing to evaluate the mechanical, electrical, magnetic, and thermal performance of full devices and/or their components.
  • Perform root cause analysis of devices and processes.
  • Write, maintain, and improve process and product documentation.


What You'll Need:

  • Disciplines of study preferred: Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Engineering, or related fields.
  • Demonstrated strong analytical skills using statistical process control (SPC), design of experiments (DOE), and analysis of variance (ANOVA).Hands-on R&D experience developing microfabrication processes for mechanical and/or electrical microsystems.
  • Knowledge of micromachining technologies, including lithography, deposition, plating, and etching of materials (including metals, ceramics, and polymers).
  • Experience developing and following stringent standard operating procedures (SOPs).
  • Experience with computer aided design (CAD) and geometric dimensioning & tolerancing (GD&T).
  • Implementing computer aided manufacturing (CAM) from CAD is preferred.
  • Training or experience in Six-Sigma, Lean Six-Sigma, Kaizen, or other process improvement methods is preferred.
  • Experience with laser micromachining is preferred.
  • Bachelor’s degree, 3-6 years of work experience. Master’s preferred.


We prioritize our employees' well-being through a comprehensive benefits package, generous PTO, and equity.
