Careers

Build Something That Matters

Fuelling our cutting edge technology and energetic work environment is the fact that everyone at General Fusion wants to make a difference to the world. We’re focused on creating a practical approach to fusion power, and our workplace reflects that.

 

The pace is fast, teams are small and agile, and the work is stimulating. Though we’ve grown to become a cutting edge research facility, pragmatism is still at the core of what we do. Physicists, engineers, machinists and computer scientists work side by side to iterate designs, creatively overcome problems, and rapidly develop our technology.

What it’s Like to Work at General Fusion

If you can find a space in our bike room, you’ll discover an active and outgoing team of some of the brightest minds around. Morning coffee rides are as much part of the culture as the lunchtime conversations that inevitably require a whiteboard. We don’t have a foosball table, but strike a balance of lifestyle and benefits that make this a great place to work.

General Fusion is transforming how the world is energized by developing the first commercially-viable fusion power plant. Fusion will deliver clean, safe, and on-demand power at industrial scale, providing a powerful complement to renewables and a pathway to a zero-emissions grid.

Combining new technologies, proven industrial processes, and advances in fundamental fusion science, General Fusion aims to be the first in the world to develop commercial fusion power. Key performance requirements have been demonstrated at the system level, setting the stage for building a pre-commercial fusion power prototype.

Position Overview:

Reporting to the Supply Chain Manager, this role will serve as the supplier quality engineer supporting General Fusion’s first-of-a-kind fusion machine procurement. The successful individual will ensure procurements meet quality requirements, leading the resolution of non-conformances as required, striking an optimum performance with regards to cost, technical requirements, quality and schedule.

Key Responsibilities:

The scope of responsibility will include

  • Review and Assess Supplier Processes: The primary duty of the supplier quality engineer is to review and assess manufacturing procedures, typically by visiting vendor facilities and observing their manufacturing environment. These visits may occur as part of the supplier selection process or after the company has established a relationship with a vendor. They may also revisit supplier facilities to determine if requested changes have been incorporated.
  • Identify Quality Issues: While conducting site visits and reviewing incoming products from vendors, supplier quality engineers also look for flaws and issues with quality. In this aspect of the role, the supplier quality engineer conducts tests and assessments on batches of products to identify recurring errors or quality issues. They may also send products back to suppliers if an entire batch is found to be defective.
  • Maintain Documentation and Reports: Supplier quality engineers also maintain detailed reports related to supplier quality. These reports tend to contain vital information, including defect rates and areas within the manufacturing process that results in flaws. In many cases, the supplier quality engineer prepares an initial report as the company decides whether to use a particular vendor. The supplier quality engineer frequently revises these reports to reflect changes in vendor processes.
  • Provide Technical Guidance and Assistance: In many cases, supplier quality engineers also provide technical guidance and advice to suppliers and decision-makers within their organizations. This guidance can range from advice on process enhancement to overhaul production and manufacturing elements to reduce defect rates. In most cases, the supplier quality engineer works closely with the vendor to incorporate these recommendations.
  • Communicate Between Suppliers and Senior Management: Supplier quality engineers also frequently serve as liaisons between their organizations’ senior management and vendors. In this aspect of the role, the supplier quality engineer may meet with both parties to identify issues in supply quality and work toward a solution. Additionally, the supplier quality engineer may gather information from both parties to support the flow of information.

Requirements:

Required:

  • Strong statistical analysis skills, ability to rigorously assess and analyze supplier or vendor data along with internal metrics
  • Highly technical role, requiring a thorough knowledge of technical elements of manufacturing and engineering, and the ability to identify flaws in processes or products
