Candidates with at least five years of experience in quality control and assurance, and a proven track record in the electro-mechanical OEM/ODM (original equipment/design manufacturer) industry should apply.

The company is looking for a professional who can qualify samples to conduct reliability and safety testing, and troubleshoot. Applicants with experience in these areas will be preferred.

Additional responsibilities include taking corrective action - and putting in place prevention plans - to ensure quality compliance and quality system integration with vendors and customers.

Responsibilities also cover customer quality auditing, updating procedures and instructions, and negotiating quality acceptance criteria.

The position requires a person who is attentive to detail. He or she will also need to be tactful when resolving customer quality complaints.

The ideal candidate will have a degree in an electronic or electrical engineering discipline, and have knowledge of quality standards such as ISO 9000/ QS-9000/ ISO 14001/ TQM (total quality management).

All applicants should have a good understanding of process quality control in product manufacturing processes.

Since the position is in the mainland, the applicant should be able to communicate and write reports in both Putonghua and English.

Candidates who do not have the relevant experience will be considered for the position of assistant manager or senior engineer.
