Your tasks

The FO Testing Laboratory supports the internal testing for all the FO Divisions and Business Units (BUs) including Product and Project Development, Quality, Qualification and Requalification, among others. In 2020 alone, the FO Laboratory performed 648 tests on a wide range of technologies, from optical, optical-mechanical, optical-thermal and destructive tests, all in conformance with international standards such as ISO, IEC and Telcordia, among others. Every test report is the compilation of the work generated by each of our laboratory professionals. These test reports represent the quality of our work in front of our clients.

In this challenging function, you will be responsible for the technical documentation like test reports, measurement or equipment instructions. You will work closely together with the lab professionals to see the requested tests from the inquiry through the execution to the test result documentation. It is your task to conduct technical discussions with internal customers, to discuss and align technical details and requirements of the tests, and to clarify these details with the Standardization Manager. As part of the FO Laboratory, your contribution to the group will drive further the quality and performance of the laboratory with a “Continuous Improvement” mentality.

The FO Testing Laboratory works closely together with the Standardization Manager to ensure that all tests are conducted per the latest revision of norms, and that test reports also fulfill the norms and the requirements from our clients. You will need to become very knowledgeable in a wide variety of standards and norms, most of them written in English.
