Employment Opportunities at Creative Electron

Creative Electron was founded in 2008 with a simple mission: to build the best x-ray inspection systems in the world. We spent our first few years in business focusing on technology development and building our intellectual property portfolio. During this period we worked with several government agencies on solving challenging problems in homeland security and defense. These experiences helped us to further develop the technologies that eventually ended up in our TruView X-Ray inspection systems.

The company is a great experiment of the American entrepreneurial spirit. Similar to many successful companies like Apple and HP, Creative Electron started in a garage in sunny California. Also similar to these companies, Creative Electron relied on an amazing group of engineers and technicians to realize the American dream: that the sky is the limit when a great idea is fueled by an incredible amount of work.

Our customers include business in the electronic sector in all stages of development: from the garage to Fortune 500 companies. We manufacture and distribute high performance, off the shelf and custom x-ray inspection systems used for quality assurance, material conformity, and counterfeit detection in a wide range of applications.

Our obsession with the continuous improvement of our x-ray machines has allowed us to bring to market a very competitive x-ray package: great image, great automation, and great value. These statements are backed by a robust yearly revenue growth and validated by our industry partnerships, including the 2011 High Tech Award by TechAmerica and numerous speaking and leadership engagements with IPC, IEEE, IMAPS, CTI, SMTA, IDEA, SAE, US Tech, and ERAI.
