Assigned projects require a comprehensive and demonstrated understanding of the polymeric, ferrous, and non-ferrous material selection and usage, mechanism design, kinematic analysis, and strength of material analysis as it corresponds to the refinement of industrial and mechanical-related designs.

The primary duties and responsibilities associated with this position include but are not limited to conceptualizing engineered product designs based on product definition worksheets; testing of preliminary prototypes to validate initial engineering concepts; design for manufacturing; design revision of tooled components; working with industrial designers to validate functionality and strength of materials; identification and resolution of engineering problems around specific product design needs; verification of final production product to design intent; participation in continuous improvement initiatives of the design and testing processes.

Responsibilities:

  • Working within the Design Team to advise on core engineering aspects during the development of new products
  • Reviewing and analyzing engineering designs for functionality, durability, and manufacturability
  • Reviewing engineering documentation for completeness and clarity
  • Assisting designers with design concepts to meet new product specifications, and providing recommendations to optimize designs
  • Working closely with the Data Management group to produce the project's technical data package ("TDP") including establishing Bills of Material and critical design components tolerances
  • Developing and conducting lab experiments to validate designs
  • Evaluating and qualifying prototypes, first-article samples, new suppliers, and manufacturing processes
  • Advising on assembly tooling and fixtures
  • Working closely with the manufacturing group to facilitate the transition of new products from design into manufacturing
  • Promote company foundations and enforce internal policies, procedures, goals, objectives, and good design and manufacturing practices

  • Travel: up to 10%; both international and domestic

Qualifications:

  • BS Mechanical Engineering from an accredited college
  • Applied Design Engineering with 5+ years' experience
  • Proven track record of a consumer product or related design experience with extreme attention to detail
  • Previous design experience of polymer-based consumer products is essential
  • Experience in mechanism and mechanical system design, strong kinematic proficiency, and demonstrable mechanical aptitude required
  • Specialized knowledge of plastic injection molding technologies ideal; fundamental knowledge of machining, stamping, casting, and/or other manufacturing processes desirable
  • Must be proficient with solid modeling and finite element analysis (CAD, CAE, FEA) software packages; SolidWorks and COSMOS knowledge is preferable
  • Ability to read, analyze, interpret, and correct mechanical drawings including Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing ("GD&T") and related engineering specifications
  • Must be proficient in learning new concepts while working in a highly dynamic environment; able to seamlessly work across boundaries and interact with management, factory personnel, other engineers, suppliers, and customers
  • Familiarity with relevant analytical software packages desirable (Moldflow, Cimatron, Adams Dynamic Simulation, CETOL, etc.)
  • Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Project)
  • Solid works 2019 or later; advanced user-preferred (surfacing, multi-body modeling, complex assemblies, mechanism layout)
