About Baraja

Baraja is changing the world of self-driving cars through the invention of a new type of LiDAR called Spectrum-Scan™ that delivers ultra-high performance at high resolution, even at incredibly far distances. Today, Baraja LiDAR is already deployed in multiple verticals, working with global automotive and industrial partners.

Originally founded in Sydney, Australia, we also have offices in San Francisco, China and Europe. We are funded by Sequoia, Blackbird and Main Sequence Ventures and we are excited to continue growing the team, so if you are looking for a fast-paced, dynamic role in a start-up we are keen to hear from you!


The Opportunity
We are looking for a New Product Introduction Engineer to join our growing Advanced Manufacturing department, delivering a consistent production experience with high quality and automation, all while enabling enough flexibility to bring product improvements to customers.  

Reporting to the NPI Engineering Team Lead, you will be responsible for timely and successful transfer of prototypes, new products, and product features into manufacturing by developing and implementing stable and repeatable manufacturing processes and tests.


Inside the Job

  • Work closely with product development, manufacturing, and other teams to ensure prototype product and process requirements are verified and met

  • Develop assembly processes and test methods that will improve yield and safety, reduce product cost, and improve product quality

  • Drive improved product quality by identifying manufacturing issues, troubleshooting and root cause analysis, developing cost effective solutions, and overseeing successful implementation into production.

  • Document assembly process steps, test methods and control points to support production

  • Specify equipment requirements for pilot manufacturing and volume production

  • Ensure product designs are reviewed for assembly and manufacturability

  • Support training of operators and coordinate prototype builds

  • Perform any other tasks and functions, as required




About You

·       3+ years’ experience in volume manufacturing or NPI; working in an ISO9001 environment desirable

·       2+ years’ experience in ERP/MRP systems

·       Statistical analysis to establish process stability and capability



·       Tertiary qualifications in Physics or Engineering (electronics, mechatronics, or mechanical)

·       3+ years process engineering and/or process development experience

·       Automotive experience or working with automotive customers

·       Experience working with LIDAR 


Be part of a high-performance team

We work toward our goals by being in constant communication in person and through a range of technologies. We also have big ears for feedback from customers to help us continually improve the Baraja experience. We are pretty good at what we do (but definitely not perfect), so you’ll be learning from and working with a top-flight team on a mission to be better every day.


What matters to us

We believe that our culture is one of our most important assets and we’ve wrapped it up with three key values that we do our best to live up to every day:  

·       Hustle to deliver on hard and meaningful problems - Passion to achieve. Resilience & learning. What's the next challenge?

·       Develop sustained high performance - It’s not enough to design amazing products, we need to design the means to manufacture these products, at scale.

·       Build the machine that builds the machine - Great teams make great things. They also respectfully challenge each other to reach the next milestone.

What are you waiting for? If this role excites you, we’re keen to have a chat!
