Electronic Lab Logistics

Arista Santa Clara, CA

Job Description:

Here is an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of one of the most successful high tech companies in the Bay Area. This key position combines social skills, intelligence, and physical activity. The unique aspect of this position is that the successful candidate will be able to find the specific engineers who are aware of the materials and locations, and then coax that information out of those people in order to keep a complex lab with hundreds of project running smoothly. You may have dozens of inquiries open at any one time, and you need to track each one to resolution. The physical portion of the job is receiving materials, notifying teams, moving those materials (boxes) to temporary locations, and then delivering them when needed. This is close to a warehouse/parts inventory function, except the items, uses, and destinations are different every time.

No technical degree is required, but you will be surrounded by those with technical degrees such as electrical engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering, etc. If you thrive working with engineering professionals, then this job is for you.

You will be joining one of the technically strongest and most efficient teams in the industry, dedicated to creating Data Center Switches with the highest performance, lowest cost, and highest reliability. Your contribution will be focused to support our fast moving Hardware Engineering Lab operations.
