We are expanding a modern prototyping facility to support our engineering design teams in the creation of future generations of FRL products. This facility is designed for model making, prototyping and short-run production of typically fewer than 100 pieces.

We are seeking a CNC Prototyping Machinist to join our team. This role will be responsible for CNC programming, process development, and machining, and required working with engineers and designers to prototype ideas from start to finish with ownership of the entire process. Our products utilize a variety of materials (from plastics to hard metals) and processes and the CNC Prototyping Machinist will either be familiar and experienced with these technologies or able to quickly get up to speed on new technologies.

The prototyping facility includes advanced 5- and 3-axis CNC machine tools, 5-axis water-jet cutting, and manual machine tools. The CNC Prototyping Machinist is responsible for the safe setup, operation and maintenance of this equipment, including tooling and fixture specification and procurement.

The machinist will work closely with mechanical engineering and industrial design teams to solve design and manufacturing issues. We move fast and are looking for a person who is driven to find fast, efficient ways to go from CAD models to finished parts in real materials on complex geometries and compressed timelines.

We are a tight knit group with a passion for making things, the ideal candidate brings diverse perspectives stemming from broad experience with fabrication processes and prototyping methods not limited to CNC machining.
