I enjoyed a satisfying career in defense and medical electronics as a Test and Product Engineer. Transitioning out of that career left a void and I began looking for a challenging role in a technical environment. I saw a Retronix Semiconductor ad for Manufacturing Technicians at a major local Wafer Fab.  

After some research, I accepted the position to work with the IQ Technician team and have now found that the job is far more rewarding than I had expected. The position offers deep exposure to and experience in key aspects of state-of-the-art semiconductor facility infrastructure.   

Although I didn’t seek it out, local Retronix management also recognized my background and promoted me into a lead role just two months after I started! They were very accommodating in working with me to establish a schedule that fit both my and the company’s needs.

The management team goes the extra mile to leverage strengths of available staff and allocate resources effectively.    

Retronix Semiconductor offer experience in key positions, at world-class facilities allowing individuals to build critical skills that are highly marketable in the technical job market. I would not hesitate to recommend the company for candidates looking to establish a career path – or to broaden existing personal skill sets.
