Job Description:

Company Overview:

INFICON is a leading provider of innovative instrumentation, critical sensor technologies, and Smart Manufacturing/Industry 4.0 software solutions that enhance productivity and quality of tools, processes, and complete factories. These analysis, measurement and control products are essential for gas leak detection in air conditioning/refrigeration and automotive manufacturing. They are vital to equipment manufacturers and end-users in the complex fabrication of semiconductors and thin film coatings for optics, flat panel displays, solar cells and industrial vacuum coating applications. Other users of our vacuum-based processes include the life sciences, research, aerospace, packaging, heat treatment, laser cutting and many other industrial processes. We also leverage our expertise in vacuum technology to provide unique, toxic chemical analysis products for emergency response, security, and environmental health and safety.


The System Engineering & Test (SET) team, made up of various individuals from engineering, chemistry and physics backgrounds, is looking for a new teammate with a physics background. The group's primary function is to own the system level definition and verification testing of all new INFICON products. In addition, the team supports existing products by verifying updates and performing root cause analysis on issues.

 You will be challenged with applying diverse skills and experiences to triage issues in a wide range of INFICON's products. This includes the ability to systematically reproduce, diagnose, and characterize failure mechanisms of product hardware and software issues related to instrumentation. Because issues can be mechanical, electrical, or software in origin, you will need to seek out assistance from the appropriate INFICON scientists and engineers of all disciplines, and to communicate well with the marketing and operations departments. You need not be an expert in all fields, but rather be able to learn quickly from subject matter experts as needed.

Required Education and Experience:

  • A Bachelor's degree in Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or related technical area required. A Master's or Ph.D. highly preferred in Analytical Physics or Chemistry.
  • Extensive experience in mass spectrometry, vacuum theory, and spectroscopy required. Knowledge in designing and optimizing ion optics (vacuum and atmospheric) highly preferred.
  • Ability to troubleshoot systems and test on a component level using complex tools
  • Ability to work on medium, high and ultra-high vacuum systems
  • Have an Electronics background and be mechanically inclined
  • Must be able to work well in cross-functional teams and have excellent interpersonal skills, demonstrating a positive attitude and interaction with the internal team and customers
  • Must be highly organized in order to manage multiple topics in parallel and self-starting
  • Ability to work in an agile, fast pace environment

Preferred Education and Experience:

  • Hands-on experience operating and maintaining pumping stations and test stands, residual gas analyzers and vacuum pressure gauges for testing
  • Software programming experience for running experiments and tests (e.g.LabVIEW)

INFICON provides a dynamic work environment that promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our employees experience on going green initiatives, flexible work hours, and a variety of health and wellness programs.
