This position is for a Lead Mechanical Engineer providing design, implementation, testing, and production  of mechanical and electro-mechanical systems for consumer and commercial robotic products. 

Lead mechanical design and product development activities from concept through production:

  • Develop innovative designs to meet all requirements for performance, reliability, total cost of ownership, serviceability, and manufacturability.
  • Lead design visualization efforts with 3D CAD models to explore multiple design options.
  • Realize industrial design concept sketches in to functional and manufacturable designs.
  • Design of plastic and metal mechanical components, mechanisms, and assemblies.
  • Design of user interface and electrical enclosures.
  • Detailed mechanical design using CAD tools (SolidWorks, Creo/Pro-E, etc.).
  • Create engineering package including BOM, assembly trees, parts list, etc.
  • Release and control engineering documentation using ECO processes.
  • Leverage laboratory testing and field-test data to understand and manage design trade-offs.
  • Lead mechanical technical design reviews, risk assessments, FMEA, FEA, Reliability testing, etc.
  • Leads and mentors junior engineers and designers throughout the development cycle.
  • Define qualification, acceptance, and functional testing requirements for mechanical systems.
