Take inputs from customers (both internal and external) and generate sub-system requirements.
Utilize a set of requirements to design elegant solutions both quickly and carefully, independently preempting issues of manufacturability and future maintenance.
Design and execute tests to disambiguate between candidate solutions, find the best approach, and convince the team of your conclusion.
Transform tested conceptual solutions into robust product designs in coordination with engineering, operations, the customer and contract manufacturers
Design and release components and systems using SolidWorks.
Develop production and support documentation including bills of material (BOMs), assembly drawings, and maintenance instructions.
Work with our suppliers, machinists, contract manufacturers, and shippers to guarantee that the right electromechanical system is assembled and functional in the right place at the right time.
Perform test and verification of prototype systems.
Perform system design analyses, including reliability, design-for-manufacture, design-for-assembly, cost-takeout, etc.
Desired Experience, Knowledge, Skills and Abilities
Bachelor's of Master's in Mechanical Engineering
Five or more years of related work experience, preferably advancing designs from initial concept through initial production.
Significant experience using 3D CAD, preferably SolidWorks - including 2D drawings, simulations, and PDM
Experience designing motion control systems with sensors, actuators and complex mechanisms
Experience designing systems that are used in industrial settings
A working knowledge of ASME drafting standards including GD&T, (Y14.5-2009)
A working knowledge of DFM/A, Six Sigma, and statistical tolerance analysis
A working knowledge of structured problem solving methods including 8D and Ishikawa diagrams, (fishbone)
A working knowledge of failure avoidance methods including DFMEA/PFMEA and fault tree analysis
Able to work with customers and contract manufacturers
Able to manage more than one project concurrently while still meeting deadlines
High level of technical writing proficiency (specs, test plans, reports, white papers, etc.)
Ability to handle some minimal electrical design (cable harnesses, wiring diagrams, grounding strategies, etc.) is a plus
