This is a in-house clean lab position recovering and reconstructing data from damaged devices and electronics. You’ll be troubleshooting electrical, mechanical, and logical issues then performing delicate operations on sensitive storage devices and electronics. Typical devices are magnetic hard drives, solid state drives, thumb drives, flash drives, and memory cards. Daily operations involve layering contextually relevant methods with a variety of custom equipment to properly extract, reconstruct, and interpret data. Work often requires chemicals and specialized tools in conjunction with special software.
An ideal candidate would be familiar with how modern storage device work, understand file system strengths and weaknesses, have great attention to detail, like the concept of tips and tricks when addressing problems, and enjoy solving puzzles.
