Job Description

Tribogenics is a company with culture rich in discovery and technological innovation. Today, our new proprietary triboluminescence technology is transforming the world of portable X-ray by eliminating the need for costly, high voltage using a process similar to static electricity (known as the triboelectric effect) to generate X-rays. We’ve already commercialized our new technology, launching a family of Watson™ high performing, XRF metal analyzers for industrial applications.

Our work has only just begun. We are expanding our discovery, developing meaningful solutions for consumer, industrial, medical and security applications, and to do this we need more experts to join our team. We have an opening for Director of our X-ray Engineering Team.


  • Within the scope of this position includes the responsibility for directing the development of unique x-ray source products based on the triboelectric charging principle and integrating these x-ray source into handheld and benchtop industrial and medical devices.  Also included is responsibility for the full life cycle of the x-ray source products including sustaining engineering of devices in production.
  • Additionally, through design control apply and instill into the team stage gate development principles such as design verification, validation, human elements and risk managements.  Create an organization that is built on statistics and data driven decision making.
