Quality Technician

150 150 Sirrus Chemistry


The quality technician is responsible for creating and keeping critical data and records to support a robust synthesis and process laboratory operation. This role provides data generation and detailed records of routine quality data and supports teams in quality investigations. The technician is expected to have a basic understanding of analytical methods to enable accurate execution of documented analytical methods, and to also develop an understanding of the key Sirrus processes. The technician should gain competence in following SOPs for some analytical characterization methods and know key resources for running tests for methods in which they are not trained. This role supports all Sirrus departments, with emphasis on data collection in process development and downstream synthesis projects. Occasionally, the technician will also conduct, lead or support special projects in the investigation of new techniques or insights to improve quality systems and work processes.  

Key Responsibilities:

  • Creating and tracking raw material quality data, including tagging for approved-for-use and tracking retest dates.
  • Collecting, analyzing and reporting weekly in-process samples from process operations.
  • Collecting, analyzing and reporting weekly finished product samples from process operations.
  • Collecting, analyzing and reporting samples from downstream synthesis activities.
  • Tracking, analyzing and reporting samples in stability programs.
  • Inventory management of finished product samples. Maintenance of labelling and storage to support FIFO of sample and raw material management.
  • Manage retain samples from routine production and special tests and studies.
  • Organizing and sharing data and reports with team members and joining team meetings to discuss quality results.
  • Proficiency in SOPs for a critical number of key analytical methods. Maintain skills through analytical cross-sample programs.
  • Supporting quality-related improvement projects such as maintenance of stability chambers and improving documentation for work processes.


  • Organization skills. Success in this role not only requires being organized—a successful quality technician should truly enjoy organizing data and systems and keeping them in good order.
  • Proficiency in following methods for chemical and physical analytical techniques.
  • Familiarity with data systems such as Microsoft Excel and experience in interfacing with various quality and analytical software applications.
  • Comfortable working across many organizations. This role will interface with many different organizations and will require good communication across different project teams.
  • Experience with quality systems such as good manufacturing practice (GMP) is preferred and will be learned or improved on the job.
  • A chemistry degree or two-year certificate with a focus on analytical chemistry, or a minimum of five-years related work experience in analytical or quality.

Depending on the individual situation, this role could be adapted to be a less-than-full-time position.
