New to the tech industry? Talented but with no current degree or certification? Looking to make a name for yourself? Trying to get your foot in the door for high end jobs? You have found the perfect place!
We offer flexible scheduling to allow you to work at times you feel you are most efficient, as well as a premium support system that allows you to thrive in your work environment despite any challenges you may face.
We are very understanding that those new to the field may have hiccups here and there. For that reason we are willing to work with you, not hold that against you. In order to best help you achieve long term success in the industry, rather than give you answers, we allow you to search for the answers on various search engines and sites. Just as you would at other high end jobs. These “research hours” are unpaid, allowing you all the time you need to grow and develop your skill set, without the burden of deadlines or pressure from a manager to increase your production time or daily output.
We find that by offering this sort of free form work environment, that our engineers really excel, and grow into the industry. We have a variety of real world business applications for what you create, meaning you get to build a very strong, practical, portfolio while working with us. Which follows you through your career, and can be a make or break for new jobs if you decide to move on.
All we ask for, is someone who has experience with building any type of physical Arduino and/or Raspberry Pi project to take the lead on some very exciting projects.
The only question you need to ask yourself, is do you believe in your ability to grow and adapt to challenges that may face you. Because we already know our answer to that is a resounding YES.
This job will be dealing mostly with motion control and computer vision for industrial automation purposes (at a lower volume prototype scale).
You will have online assistants and advisors to help with coding the functions of each machine, but you will be doing most of the physical assembly of the systems.
Most of the work will be done at our warehouse in West Haven, CT but some of the work can potentially be done elsewhere such as MakeHaven in New Haven, CT.
Our timelines are very flexible for our projects and we are happy to work with limited availability.
We have a very wide variety of projects that we would like to have completed. Below is a list of some of the prototyping projects which you can choose to take the lead on.
- Create a camera slider with multi-axis tilt functions which can all be controlled via a computer
