Part-Time Manufacturing Floater
Danville Signal is hiring!
Do you like to build stuff? Interested in how electronics work? Does working in a small yet flexible company seem like a good fit for you?
Danville Signal is an electronics manufacturing company located in Cannon Falls that specializes in building solutions for audio applications using digital signal processing or DSP. One of our high-end audio solution examples of digital signal processing is a DSP crossover, an electronic board used in manufacturing recording studio monitors. These monitors are used by some of the famous musicians and artists you know by name. We do most of our work in high-end audio, but we also build solutions for air traffic control, acoustics, vibration and other signal processing applications. It sounds cool (and we think it is), but at the core of it all is a simple, embedded electronics board. And that's what we build.
We are looking for manufacturing floater/test technician to join our team. We envision this part-time position starting at 20 to 25 hours per week. We can see the potential for it to grow to more hours or stay static to meet your availability. We also have the flexibility for you to have control over your schedule. As long as tasks are completed in a timely manner, we are flexible with the days and times that you will come to work as long as you are consistently reaching the targeted hours and production for the week. We know that we can teach you to do the work we need to accomplish on any given week. The question is more if you would be challenged by and enjoy working in a manufacturing setting. We run our business on the flexibility model; so that means everyone steps up to do what needs to be done to meet our production goals. It's about serving our customers while also creating a solid working environment for our team members too. We partner across the board to create a win-win situation for all of us.
You would enjoy this position if you like a lot of variety in your work, as this position is meant to support the key activities in our manufacturing: purchasing & kitting parts, running the SMT machines that build our boards, test & programming boards to ensure they'll work as designed, and final prep for shipping. Some days you might work in several departments at once while other days you may spend a week or more focused in one area. Being comfortable on a computer is key to this job. Being comfortable with change, learning new things, and being willing to try even as you make mistakes (and we all do), are also good traits to have and will help make this work fun for you.
We offer competitive pay and pride ourselves in having an upbeat, casual work environment. We have a great team of hard-working individuals who will help in giving you the resources you need to succeed in your role.
Tasks might include:
- Final hardware assembling of boards
- Board testing to ensure all circuits work
- Board programming with customer's software
- Coding failed units for rework
- Product packing & labeling
- Clean and organize final inventory shelves
We hire to these core values:
- Initiative: The ability to assess and initiate action independently.
- Adaptability: The ability to adapt to new conditions.
- Flexibility: The willingness to change or compromise.
- Taking Responsibility: The state of being responsible, answerable or accountable for something within one’s power or control. We own our successes and mistakes.
- Treating People as Adults: Trusting people to complete assigned tasks in the best way.
- Strong Work Ethic: Believing in the value of a job well done and stepping up
We believe in fair compensation and offer a flexible, casual work environment. If the work above looks like something you would enjoy and the environment feels like a place where you could learn, grow and thrive, we hope you'll apply.
In your email, please share with us which of our core values is most important to you and why. Applications will be accepted until filled. We do intend to start interviews with candidates immediately, as we hope to bring our new hire on board as soon as possible
