What to Expect

As the process engineer, you will be responsible for process sustaining and continuous improvement on the Service Manufacturing production lines, building new HV batteries and electric motors for Tesla's service network. You will be responsible for applying lean manufacturing principles to monitor yield, fallout, and critical parameters and drive necessary process improvements. Daily work will be highly cooperative in nature with regularly interactions with manufacturing engineering, new product introduction, quality engineering, equipment engineering, and production operators – strong interpersonal skills are critical. You will place a significant focus on troubleshooting and root causing test failures and fallout, including data collection and rework process development. You will also overlap regularly with the remanufacturing operations of similar products to understand leading causes of field failures and prevent defects in production.The position will report to the engineering lead for the associated product within Service Manufacturing.

What You'll Do

  • Lead continuous improvement activities to drive improvements to critical KPIs: safety, quality, output, and cost
  • Establish regular yield tracking, including data collection and Pareto charts for top failrues; lead team meetings to review and drive implementation of countermeasures to top issues
  • Establish and monitor SPC for all critical process parameters and ensure process documentation is updated, clear, and comprehensive
  • Work closely with New Product Introduction teams to trial and implement product changes and plan for sub-component obsolescence at suppliers
  • Work closely with maintenance and equipment engineering to troubleshoot equipment issues and address production issues
  • Lead NCM (non-conforming material) activities, including the documentation and troubleshooting of line fall out
  • Create troubleshooting guides and document procedures for offline failure analysis of test failures and non-conformances
  • Design, validate, and document rework procedures for non-conforming material
  • Work with field quality and remanufacturing to monitor field reliability of finished products and drive necessary process improvements to reduce failures
  • Maintain MES (manufacturing execution system) SOPs and process flow; make necessary updates for process and BoM changes
  • What You'll Bring

  • BS or higher degree in engineering (Preferred Mechanical, Electrical, Manufacturing, or Industrial) or equivalent relevant experience
  • 2+ year's experience in manufacturing, operations, or similar
  • Exposure to Lean Manufacturing, 5S, continuous improvement
  • Knowledge of problem solving tools and methodologies (A3, 8D, or similar)
  • Experience with FMEAs and 8D are highly desired
  • Knowledge of statistical process control (SPC)
  • Experience with time study methodologies and industrial engineering basics and strong mechanical and electrical engineering fundamentals
  • Experience with electric motors or lithium ion batteries is a plus
  • Comfortable working with data; SQL is a plus
  • Strong verbal and written communication, ability to work in large teams and comfortable with ambiguity
  • From this employer
