At SkyWater, we work across many realms of semiconductor manufacturing. In the maintenance department, we have our fingers in just about everything -- so it's much more exciting than just wrenching all of the time. You can work your way up into engineering or operations management. We really offer a lot of opportunities and paths for our technicians - you just have to go after it.

Production Manager

I worked in the United States Nuclear Navy, in submarines, for 10 years. That's where I got the experience level, "It has to work." You're out in the ocean and you have what you have. We are a very diverse group and our culture wall says it all. Working with carbon nanotubes allows you to think of things in the molecular level and quantum level. It's very exciting, leading edge technology that's helping our customers.

Equipment Engineer

As a child, I was always very curious and took things apart like toasters and electronics to figure out how they work. Later, I joined the Navy as an electronics technician -- performing preventative maintenance, repairing and trouble shooting antennas, satellites and other communications equipment. This experience prepared me for my role at SkyWater where new problems requiring new thinking happen every day.
