You’ll be an Applications engineer on our AppEng team. The AppEngs team drives technical and overall customer success by working with customers on ensuring that our stack is delivering data correctly and reliably.

ArchFX receives millions of streaming data points per day from thousands of advanced machines in factories and merges it with a virtual “factory map” containing metadata about the physical location of each machine in the factory and the configuration of factory lines. Managing the complexity of this time-aware factory map data structure is one of the core components of ArchFX Cloud.

ArchFX Cloud also serves its core factory map data to all other aspects of the ArchFX system including streaming on-premise data ingestion and advanced data science models of factory operations.

We’re seeking an applications engineer to support our factory mapping systems and work on maintaining data connectivity to factory machines. You will be supported by world class domain experts who deeply understand electronics factories and will be centrally involved in making the ArchFX Platform a world-class factory management system that is powering Industry 4.0, the next industrial revolution in electronics manufacturing.
