Are you an early career mechanical or electrical engineer, an expert at assembling mechanical devices, or just love working with your hands?  Are you looking to apply your energy and experience towards advancing the development of novel cancer treatments? If the answer is yes, then we would love to chat!

About us 

We are Inventia Life Science ( and we are radically changing the way the world treats disease and injury. We're a multidisciplinary team, deeply inspired by the purpose of innovating for the better and backed by top-tier venture capital funds. We are now looking for a number of full time Printer Assembly Technicians and Engineers to come on board and help us scale up our 3D printer manufacturing operation.

Working as a valued member of our growing Manufacturing team, you will build and test our revolutionary 3D printers, assembled using over 1000 individual parts.  You will be an integral member of our growing Inventia team, and work in our world-class facilities here in Sydney, Australia.  

The current team sits at just over 60 employees. Our revolutionary 3D digital bioprinting technology enables pioneers in the fields of drug discovery and medicine to radically drive innovation from disease treatment (in areas such as cancer) through to the way we treat injuries. 

The role

The Printer Assembly Technician will report directly to the lead of our Printer Manufacturing team, and be responsible for assembling, testing and reworking the components and sub-assemblies that make up our revolutionary 3D printers. The role also involves working closely with other parts of the manufacturing team including Quality, Consumables Manufacturing and Supply Chain to ensure timely production and delivery of our 3D printers to our customers.

The responsibilities of the Printer Assembly Technician include :

  • Assembly of mechanical and electronic parts
  • Testing and troubleshooting printer assemblies
  • Inspect incoming parts
  • Working in accordance with WHS policies to ensure a safe workplace
  • Adherence to processes and procedures for manufacture of printer assemblies 
  • Reporting on issues, processes and procedures, giving feedback and suggestion for improvements

To be considered for this role we need someone with the following :

  • Experience with small electronic and mechanical assemblies, or the ability and inclination to learn the skills required for device assembly. 
  • Attention to detail is important and required - our 3D printers are designed for critical applications.
  • Minimum of Year 12 education or equivalent – further education will be highly regarded, with technical elective subjects an advantage
  • Ability to work to tight deadlines, in a fast-paced and dynamic environment
  • Effective interpersonal and communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Organised, efficient, good at multitasking, and driven to succeed
  • Familiar with technology and software 
  • This role is based in Alexandria in central Sydney, so the ability to work from our Sydney-based facility is required.  While flexible work arrangements are available where possible, much of this role involves physical assembly of products, which limits the availability of flexible work arrangements.
  • Applicants need to have a valid Australian visa with the right to work in Australia 

A range of salaries is on offer, depending on your skills and experience:

  • Printer Assembly Technician : $50,000 - $65,000 excluding super.
  • Senior Printer Assembly Technician : $65,000 - $80,000 excluding super.

Our culture

A lot of people talk about unique and exceptional cultures, but not many lead it. We place a high value on creating a unique and exceptional workplace. Unlike many other startups, we live work-life balance. Our passions are many and we believe the journey is as important as the outcome. So for us, it's about building an exceptional team and culture and loving every part of what lays ahead.  We provide optionality in terms of working from home and the office, which is based in Sydney. Our office is right next to a childcare facility and home to our family of mostly-thriving houseplants. Equity and a strong market based salary are on offer, within a supportive but empowered, fully agile environment, which we have worked hard to create. Come and do work that really matters within a team who care as much about one another as the mission!

If the above sounds like what you’ve been searching for, let’s start a conversation. We also strongly encourage you to apply even if you are not sure you fit all of the criteria we’ve mentioned. Come as you are - we believe that diversity drives innovation.
