Field Technician

Field Technician – USA

Are you carving a career in R&D Engineering? 

Then join us as we establish our new U.S. operation to build something great and revolutionise the eye care industry. 


The Company

We are an advanced technology company breaking new ground and developing innovative solutions for the medical and ophthalmic industries worldwide. Our team consists of some of the leading engineers in the ophthalmic industry and has a track record of developing rapid solutions for commercial and research partners. The current global team comprises a mix of R&D engineering, Software engineering, sales, and management. We are a focused, dynamic, and highly motivated team that is making significant improvements to eye care technology throughout the US, UK and beyond.  

Our products are unique to the industry and have the potential to transform it by offering two main benefits; one product will change how eye care is delivered, requiring fewer highly skilled opticians and removing the need for them to be in the same geography as the patient. Our other product improves both the quality and efficiency of laboratories producing prescription eye wear on a large scale.


The Role

We are seeking a highly motivated and skilled Field Technician to join our dynamic team. The Field Technician will primarily be responsible for installing and servicing our proprietary equipment in lens manufacturing labs and optometry offices.

The Person

Due to the nature of the role, you will need to be a self-starter and work independently, albeit as part of a collaborative and close-knit international engineering team. You will need to have a flexible approach to work, sometimes working across different time zones, and have a willingness to learn new technologies and take pride in building high quality and robust applications. You will be required to travel across the Americas, from time to time, to lead product installations at customer locations and possibly troubleshoot onsite.

You will be able to manage your projects and time in line with those of the R&D team, deliver to deadlines and work both collaboratively and independently. Excellent communication skills, written and verbal, are essential along with the ability to recognise the commercial impact of delivering new projects on time.
