Accelerator Technician

Have you ever wanted to build a particle accelerator? Are you hands-on, comfortable tinkering with electronics, mechanics, or vacuum equipment – pretty much everything? Are you a jack-of-all-trades who learns quickly and adapts readily? Would you rather lift a wrench than sit at a desk? Then, this job is for you!
 
RadiaBeam Technologies is a high-tech R&D and manufacturing company with a field office in Santa Clara, CA. We develop particle accelerators and accelerator-related instrumentation for security, industrial, medical, and research applications. Our world-wide staff consists of over 50 scientists, engineers, technicians and machinists centered in Santa Monica, CA, but you will be joining a small team serving our Bay area customers. We’re a fun company to work for, with interesting people, a laid-back culture, and good work-life balance.

  • Ability to follow verbal instructions and adhere to written procedures
  • Familiarity with hand tools and sufficient dexterity for their use
