You must be the one we are expecting!

As a Product Design Engineer on our team, you will be responsible for the mechanical design & development of our connected smart devices.
We are looking for candidates who thrive in a fast-paced start-up like environment and want to invent the future. In the role, you will identify and initiate investigations of production technologies, prototype and test solutions for product features, and design and validate production designs that deliver an exceptional user experience.

-

You will work autonomously under the responsibility of a technical director with a mechanical background and work with the team at large to ensure a functional and aesthetic product. To be successful you need to be highly motivated, understand how to solve problems and dive deep while delivering to the highest standards.

-

Your mission, should you choose to accept it...

  • Create electronic enclosures designs that are functional, manufacturable and with an appealing look using 3D CAD software.
  • Define form factor, mounting methods, major component placement, connector placement and mounting, RF shielding design, and thermal transfer paths for sealed enclosures.
  • Perform engineering analyses on parts and assemblies, including DFM, FEA, fatigue, FMEA, root cause analysis, DOE creation.
  • Create and maintain engineering documentation (2D drawings, design notes, assembly methods, test specifications, regulatory documentation)
  • Create, execute, and document prototype test plans to assure product quality and confirm fabrication, assembly, and installation techniques.
  • Work with suppliers to transfer designs from prototype to mass production.
  • Provide hands-on support to production, manufacturing, and test teams.

-

  • Assess technical risk and cost for new products, review product requirements, and transform into functional and ergonomic designs.
  • Work with component and material vendors to specify requirements to design-in and deliver to mass production.
  • Deliver full documentation for new product development with focus on design for assembly and design for manufacturing. Excellent communication and documentation skills.
  • Consider current and future design platforms during the development process to ensure consistency and forward compatibility.
  • Provide operations support including cost analysis, generation of Bills of Material, creation of Engineering Change Notices, and general technical support.
  • Research into materials and processes technologies to scope development opportunities

-

Here’s what it takes

  • Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering or related field
  • 3 to 5 years of experience, product development of consumer electronics
  • Strong 3D CAD skills (Solidworks, ProE or similar), including Surface Modeling
  • Proficiency in Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance analysis for drawings
  • Broad knowledge of plastic part design, fabrication processes (such as High-Pressure Injection Molding & Tooling, 3D printing, ...) and assembly processes (such as welding)
  • Demonstrated design experience integrating electronic component modules (Sensors, Batteries, PCBs, etc.)

-

  • Demonstrated design experience with high volume/high finish electronics enclosure materials
  • Practical knowledge of how to quickly prototype and test designs
  • Ability to contribute during all phases of the project from initial concept to production ramp, including manufacturing transfer.
  • Experience in Design for Manufacturability (DFM), and Design for Assembly (DFA)
  • Product validation experience (Shock/Drop, Cycle Testing, Environmental Testing) is a plus

-

Now for the soft skills...

  • Ability to think strategically and execute methodically
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • You are results-oriented, upbeat and focused with a strong passion to learn and succeed
  • Self-motivated, entrepreneurial, independent, driven individual to meet objectives
  • Ability to multitask and prioritize while managing multiple projects and day to day responsibilities
  • Ability to influence cross-functional teams without formal authority
  • Strong attention to detail and an ability to deal with ambiguity
