Job Description
At Boeing, we innovate and collaborate to make the world a better place. From the seabed to outer space, you can contribute to work that matters with a company where diversity, equity and inclusion are shared values. We’re committed to fostering an environment for every teammate that’s welcoming, respectful and inclusive, with great opportunity for professional growth. Find your future with us.
The Specialty Materials Integration (SMI) group is seeking multiple Mid-Level Engineering Laboratory Technicians (Level 3) to join our team in Kent, Washington. **Note: There may be some travel to the Tukwila site on an as needed basis for program support.

About Us:
SMI is a section of Materials & Manufacturing Technology, all within Boeing Research & Technology (BR&T). BR&T’s scope of work spans initial concept to feasibility/development to production implementation and support. Customers include all other divisions of Boeing, US DoD (Department of Defense), NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and other organizations.

SMI is a microcosm of BR&T but with higher focus on concept generation, feasibility and technology development and maturation. We provide breadth and depth of knowledge and capabilities to help internal and external customers: with efforts spanning “clean sheet” design to correcting existing problems; to win contracts; to succeed.

Recent and on-going projects in SMI cover a wide range of interesting topics, including femtosecond and nanosecond laser processing of materials, an autonomous air-dropped amphibious vehicle, robotically-driven composite parts fabrication, UV-based sanitation systems for public transport, innovative missiles, specialty coatings and appliques, lightweight transparent armor, photolithography for B1B bomber parts, and smart heating blankets used to slash the cost of composites processing.

SMI has earned a reputation within Boeing as a go-to organization for fast development of innovative materials and processes. Our hands-on approach to development is enabled by our Advanced Materials, Advanced Development and Laser laboratories. Engineers work side-by-side with experienced and capable technicians in these labs to create a broad range of new products and capabilities, like those noted above. Directly resulting from this collaboration, over the last 5 years SMI teammates submitted 160 Invention Disclosures and were award 119 patents – We welcome and foster new ideas - bring us yours!

As an Electrical Laboratory Technician or Mechanical Laboratory Technician, you will work with experienced mentors to use and improve a wide range of skills covering: “flat” satellite build; build of electrical test equipment and support harnesses; build of mechanical test and install lift equipment; vehicle install on test fixtures; laser alignment; sealing, drilling, and assembling of parts/details; crane operation; QC checking; class 100 clean room operations; perform power up and functional checks; and much more.
