This position is located in the United States Mint, Manufacturing Department, San Francisco Mint, Coining Division. The San Francisco Mint's major mission and function is to produce quality numismatic, special and commemorative precious metal (gold, silver, platinum and other metals) coins.
This position is to supervise work in the section, plan the general flow of work, determine work schedules/procedures, set goals, work standards for assignments; improve facility productivity, reduce costs, improve effectiveness and efficiency of operations while producing all proof (and other) dies used at the San Francisco Mint.
As a Supervisory Engraving Engineer, you will:
Conduct trial/pre-production coining tests, set-ups, insure operation, production and maintains state-of-the-art automated machine tools, auto-polish, and laser frosting equipment and coating operations at the San Francisco Mint's operations.
Take the project lead and train on proof die assignments.
Serve as the technical expert and supervisor with responsibility for planning, developing, software programming directing, training, reviewing, executing, and implementing complex manufacturing and engineering processes, methods and procedures that include state-of-the-art digital product machining, laser machining, frosting, polishing, coating and other proof die manufacturing equipment/operations for the purpose of producing polished proof dies, improving quality, efficiency, and reducing time to market for new products that have multi-program impact on procedures, and operations.
Responsible for interpreting and developing engineering drawings using industry standard dimensioning practices for use by subordinate workers on to establish deadlines, set priorities, work sequences, for specific current and anticipates programs. Tasks include identifying, analyzing, correcting problems, and to engineer solutions with non-contact digital scanning, cutter path generation, machining, laser engraving, automated die polishing, and other die manufacturing processes and equipment. Incumbent collaborates with artistic, technical, engineering, and die shop personnel to review the work for general aspects of design, quality and acceptable engineering standards for coin technology.
Redirect subordinates to accomplish unanticipated work, revise work schedules and re-estimates labor and resources, Investigate excessive costs, low productivity, causes and implement corrective actions to resolve issues, recommend solutions to engineering problems. Plan and establish leave schedules, determine need and arranges training of subordinates, sets performance standards, make formal appraisals of work performance and recommends/initiates promotion and other personnel actions for subordinates.

You must meet the following requirements within 14 days of the closing date of this announcement.
Basic Requirements for the GS-801 series:
A. Degree: Engineering. To be acceptable, the program must: (1) lead to a bachelor’s degree in a school of engineering with at least one program accredited by ABET; or (2) include differential and integral calculus and courses (more advanced than first-year physics and chemistry) in five of the following seven areas of engineering science or physics: (a) statics, dynamics; (b) strength of materials (stress-strain relationships); (c) fluid mechanics, hydraulics; (d) thermodynamics; (e) electrical fields and circuits; (f) nature and properties of materials (relating particle and aggregate structure to properties); and (g) any other comparable area of fundamental engineering science or physics, such as optics, heat transfer, soil mechanics, or electronics.
B. Combination of education and experience -- college-level education, training, and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the physical and mathematical sciences underlying engineering, and (2) a good understanding, both theoretical and practical, of the engineering sciences and techniques and their applications to one of the branches of engineering. The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by one of the following:
1. Professional registration or licensure -- Current registration as an Engineer Intern (EI), Engineer in Training (EIT)1, or licensure as a Professional Engineer (PE) by any State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico. Absent other means of qualifying under this standard, those applicants who achieved such registration by means other than written test (e.g., State grandfather or eminence provisions) are eligible only for positions that are within or closely related to the specialty field of their registration. For example, an applicant who attains registration through a State Board's eminence provision as a manufacturing engineer typically would be rated eligible only for manufacturing engineering positions.
2. Written Test -- Evidence of having successfully passed the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE)2 examination or any other written test required for professional registration by an engineering licensure board in the various States, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico.
3. Specified academic courses -- Successful completion of at least 60 semester hours of courses in the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences and that included the courses specified in the basic requirements under paragraph A. The courses must be fully acceptable toward meeting the requirements of an engineering program as described in paragraph A.
4. Related curriculum -- Successful completion of a curriculum leading to a bachelor's degree in an appropriate scientific field, e.g., engineering technology, physics, chemistry, architecture, computer science, mathematics, hydrology, or geology, may be accepted in lieu of a bachelor’s degree in engineering, provided the applicant has had at least 1 year of professional engineering experience acquired under professional engineering supervision and guidance. Ordinarily there should be either an established plan of intensive training to develop professional engineering competence, or several years of prior professional engineering-type experience, e.g., in interdisciplinary positions. (The above examples of related curricula are not all-inclusive.)
In addition to the Basic Requirements for the GS-801 series, all applicants must meet the specialized experience for the GS-13 grade level.
Specialized experience: For the GS-13, you must have one year of specialized experience at a level of difficulty and responsibility equivalent to the GS-12 grade level in the Federal service. Specialized experience for this position includes:
-Provide leadership in project management; AND
-Develop general flow of work by setting goals and work standards; AND
-Improve effectiveness and efficiency of program operations to reduce costs; AND
-Conduct test and trial of processes prior to implementation; AND
-Gather and analyze data to establish system requirements; AND
-Draft technical instruction, engineering plans, technical designs and other related documents; AND
-Research, evaluate, and recommend system/equipment/technologies based upon project needs.
Education Requirements: The education requirements are covered in the "Qualifications Section". Please see below
The education generally must be from an accredited (or pre-accredited) college or university recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
The experience may have been gained in either the public or private sector or volunteer service. One year of experience refers to full-time work; part-time work is considered on a prorated basis. To ensure full credit for your work experience, please indicate dates of employment by month/day/year, and indicate number of hours worked per week on your résumé.
