PLYMOUTH, MA—(JANUARY 14, 2021)—Autocam Medical, a global contract manufacturer of precision, surgical and medical components and devices, announced today that they are looking to hire a CNC Programmer to work the first shift in their Plymouth location.
Candidates must be tech-savvy. In addition to basic computer skills, applicants are required to have three or more years of experience setting up, operating, and programming CNC Swiss Machines and be familiar with CAM software such as Partmaker or Esprit. Proficiency in reading and understanding blueprints including those that use Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) symbols is also necessary.
Because of the integral role the CNC Programmer plays in determining how components are machined, they will also be expected to support new product quoting and Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) activities. In addition to providing cycle time estimates and tooling and material requirements, they will also work with machinists to meet quality, cost, and productivity goals. They will also be required to provide daily programming support to the Swiss Value Stream.
“CNC Programming requires superior project management and attention to detail skills,” said David Francis, the General Manager of Autocam Medical’s Plymouth location. “The parts they work on require complex geometric features and very tight tolerancing.”
Due to the intricate nature of CNC Programming, those applying for the position must also possess some key soft skills including, creativity, an eye for detail, superior oral and written communications skills, analytical skills, research and development skills, documentation skills, and the ability to work with others as a team. They must also be capable of multi-tasking and adapting to evolving environments and priorities.
Besides working in a pristine, air-conditioned setting that’s outfitted with leading-edge equipment, the CNC Programmer can look forward to being employed by a company that is managed according to the latest principles of good practice, trust, fairness, and respect for the individual. They will also receive an all-encompassing compensation package that includes a premium-free health plan that rewards employees for positive lifestyle choices, vision insurance, dental insurance, quarterly incentives, a 401K match of $3,000.00, and tuition reimbursement.
“Our positive learning environment coupled with the tuition reimbursement portion of our benefits package is especially valuable to those working in the rapidly-evolving CNC Programming industry,” added Francis. “This helps our programmers stay immersed in the industry and keeps their skills sharp.”
Chris Perry, a CNC Mill Machinist/Programmer with Autocam Medical, also noted the company’s supportive work environment and commitment to continuing education, “Autocam Medical has continued to invest the time and energy to support my professional growth. It’s a great work environment with opportunities to advance and work more hours. Autocam Medical pays attention and recognizes the dedication, passion, and drive of their associates.”
