Looking for a pcb librarian

- US time zone (USA/CANADA)
- Altium experience mandatory
- Know your way around Solidworks is a +. No need to be an expert but basic manipulation like slicing / simplifying an existing model and making simple models like LED's connectors etc
- Work from home fulltime possible. Our team is geographically dispersed, no need to relocate.
- Be a wizard with tools like excel , notepad++ to extract and "massage" data like pinlists, part lists, BOM's and the likes.
- Attention to detail.
- Be able to work of minimal input . Here's the datasheet, figure it out.
- Electronics background/Design experience : understand schematics and components. You should be able to derive from the symbol what a part is / does and how it fits in a larger system. We make functional symbols, not rectangular blobs or "internetuino style" symbols. The ideal candidate should have taken a number of designs to production, from symbol/footprint creation over layout to production, so he/she understands the problems you can run into. (like being able to spot mistakes in datasheets) . This is NOT a 'draftsman / drawing" role. Electronics background is required. To be blunt : if you don't know what rdson, tc, vrwm, vbr mean, or the difference between a MOV and a VDR , it won't go well in the interview.

Note that this is a librarian role. You will be making components (data linkup with PLM and supply chain tools) , symbols and footprints. There may occasionally be small layout work , but don't bank on it.

I'm upfront about all of this so you don't get disappointed. This is not a stepping-stone or jumpseat job to get a foot in the door. 
The learning curve is steep and long. It takes the better part of a year to be good at this.
