FVT is clean tech company looking for a multi-disciplined, talented individual to join our group. You will need a strong background in both electronic and mechanical design. An average day at FVT consists of circuit design and testing, mechanical design, code writing, and part sourcing from around the globe. In the afternoon we bolt components into vehicles, test power electronics, run the CNC mill or motor dyno, then review Solidworks drawings for laser cutting. We realize the list of experience is lengthy but don’t believe in having someone do the same thing day after day. We are willing to train the right person in areas of inexperience if they are sharp, have a natural ability to absorb information, and show a passion for the technologies we believe will have a remarkable impact on the world and humanity. This by no means is an average job, or an average company. Position will be part time or full time depending on your abilities/availability and is based on a 3 month trial. Wages based on skill level.
