Device Assembly Production Supervisor
At Biomeme we make things. We make hardware; we work with biological organisms; we hack smartphones. We're looking for passionate people who are skilled with their hands and have impeccable attention to detail. You should be a fast learner and not afraid of tackling challenges both big and small. No task is above or below your pay grade.
Biomeme is as interdisciplinary as it gets. We combine rigorous biology and chemistry with best-in-class hardware and software engineering. It's all wrapped up in sublime user design, with the goal of helping our customers enact real-world change. Guided by data and a belief in the iterative process, we develop elegant solutions to complex problems that demand precision.
Our partners and customers span a wide range of industries across the US, Latin America, Africa and Europe. We've got great traction in health: we're testing for STD's in Philadelphia, Malaria and Ebola virus in Africa, Avian Influenza in Europe, veterinary targets in the Andes and Lyme disease in the US. Outside of health, we have partners in industrial water monitoring, aquaculture, agriculture, conservation biology and more. High school students are testing for mislabeled sushi. Quantified Selfers are tracking their microbiome. Everyday users are even testing their own DNA for genetic markers.
We are also currently working to manufacture and distribute COVID-19 test kits in the United States and Canada. It’s a good time to come onboard.

As a Production Supervisor you'll bring a proven track record of hands-on experience participating in and organizing day-to-day production workflow in a manufacturing setting – preferably relating to medical and/or electromechanical devices. You've worked in a deadline driven environment producing a technical product with a sharp eye for quality while meeting business output goals. The Production Supervisor will be in constant cooperation with upper management, logistical and the engineering teams to schedule production efforts and assure that assembly technicians are properly managed and equipped to build product.
In this fast-paced, start-up environment the candidate will possess strong initiative and self-starting qualities with adaptability to any task. The candidate should fully understand that this position is not a "desk job", and that in the exciting times our business is experiencing, there is no person here with a single duty. Duties will not stop at planning assembly efforts but rather include hands-on assistance evaluating equipment malfunctions, answering questions, checking paperwork, managing inventory, and being present on the assembly floor to assist in the resolution of any and all issues that may occur from a production standpoint. The ideal candidate started their career on the assembly floor themselves and, like every Biomeme employee at any level, will find no issue jumping on the line if needed to meet a critical goal.
