Fictiv, coined the “AWS of manufacturing,” is a leading technology company transforming the $350 billion manufacturing industry. Our cutting-edge cloud platform uses AI and machine learning algorithms to help companies build hardware at the speed of software. Come join our growing team!


Impact in this Role

At Fictiv, we’re building a company that is developing an operating system for sourcing custom mechanical parts. We already enjoy manufacturing and delivering highly complex, high quality parts for our Fortune 500 customers who are building the future with products like autonomous electric vehicles, surgical systems, and industrial robots. As we scale our business, we are looking to expand our growth within India. 

Your role as a QC Inspector will be to physically inspect and measure parts as well as to remotely review inspection photos of parts and documents provided by Fictiv’s manufacturing partners. You will bring knowledge of manufacturing quality issues and a keen eye for detail, to fulfill our promise of providing the highest quality parts to customers’ requirements.

In this role, you’ll be using your experience in mechanical hardware inspection, leveraging your manufacturing process knowledge and structured problem solving skills, to identify issues and to contribute to the continual improvement of our manufacturing partner network. At Fictiv, we believe providing orders on time and in full to customer requirements is essential for creating and maintaining the world’s premier platform for hardware manufacturing, and you’ll be playing a critical role in making that happen.

The role is collaborative, with daily interaction with fellow inspectors, supplier quality engineers, and logistics. In addition to the daily role, you will work to support longer term individual projects, and collaborate on the development of QC-related and other processes.

You will be instrumental in giving customers the confidence that Fictiv manages the quality of parts, at least as well as, but preferably better than they do.

  • Documentation Maintain inspection information in Fictiv’s systems so that traceability exists to satisfy the requirements of our customers and our quality management system
  • Supporting Fictiv’s industry-leading on-time, in-full (OTIF) performance You will play a critical part in maintaining Fictiv’s performance by ensuring parts are released on time and making sure that no escaping defects reach the customer. There are no partial credits - we have to do both!

  • Other tasks assigned by the Senior Supplier Quality Engineer
