3. You exhibit technical curiosity. You like to see what makes things tick. When something isn't working as expected, you investigate. Your technical curiosity makes you want to continue your investigation until you've proven root cause.

4. Your manual dexterity is high. You enjoy building complex mechanical and electrical assemblies. You are detail oriented. To you, 2:17 PM doesn't mean 2:15 or 2:20, it means 2:17. You are precise and specific and you bring that approach to your work.

One last requirement: at AML, we're looking for individuals who are excited by the idea of coming to work to contribute. In this position, you'll work with hands, but we also expect you to dedicate you head and your heart.
