As a Test Technology Lead, you will be deeply involved in evolving and enhancing our test automation software and global manufacturing infrastructure. These two areas form a natural ecosystem that connects manufacturing systems from test sources to data destinations to be used in production analysis and business intelligence. You will help the team design and build highly scalable test software framework, secure test applications, and data pipes that will be used for our worldwide AR/VR/Wearables manufacturing. On the infra side, you will be responsible for the growth, reliability, efficiency, security, performance, and overall health of the end-to-end infra that contains compute, storage, network, and security. You will partner closely with engineering, operations, and other cross-functional teams to understand the problem space and domain in depth, create roadmaps, prioritize based on impact, and drive them through to completion. You will help manage the design, bill of materials, purchasing, deployment, and operational support. You will have a strong background in high volume consumer electronics manufacturing, project management, test software framework and apps development, data pipelines, and data-center-like infrastructure.
