Quality and Specialty Systems Engineer

Denver, CO

Biofire’s mission is to redesign firearms from the ground up for the 21st century, bringing much-needed innovation to a space that has seen little innovation in 50 years. Named the “Tesla of the gun world” by the WSJ, Biofire is enabling radically safer ownership of firearms.

A technological solution that sidesteps the political conversation around guns, Biofire’s Smart Gun™ is uniquely able to prevent avoidable and accidental gun deaths. By offering gun owners the option of a Smart Gun™ that only they can use, we are empowering them with full control over their firearm so that the next time a child or teenager finds a gun, it will be locked and unusable. This is just the beginning of the improvements we will bring to market by solving the hard problems and rethinking every aspect to create the modern firearm.

Biofire has received international recognition in the WSJ, NYT, Bloomberg, Fast Company and many more for our industry-changing technology. We are backed by expert investors, founders and advisors.

 

ROLE

You will be an integral part of a team of talented individuals passionate about solving the hard problems to make Biofire’s mission a success. We operate in a fast paced, high accountability, “there is no box” environment where the goal is always to reach the best solution as efficiently as possible. Adaptability and willingness to accept feedback are critical.

As Biofire’s Quality and Specialty Systems Engineer you will be responsible for developing and implementing the quality and specialty engineering standards for the product development team aimed at ensuring overall product assurance from the beginning of the product development cycle to the end. To succeed you will need to be self-driven, obsessed with the details and comfortable operating in a multidisciplinary R&D environment. You will need to be able to understand the system at the highest levels while digging into the details to develop program standards, and then implement and train the entire team. We’re not looking for just an analyst or engineer. Analysis and engineering are important but mean nothing without the ability to serve as an independent and objective agent for product assurance and communicate effectively with program management and team contributors.

Day to day responsibilities of the role include:

  • building and aligning process, quality, and design standards;

  • system modeling for quality, reliability, and other product assurance measures;

  • vendor quality and process oversight including overseeing parts and materials selection and screening;

  • product quality design and implementation;

  • electromagnetic compatibility;

  • human systems integration; and

  • manufacturability.
