  • Develop and document mechanical design best practices for new and existing product families.
  • Review, optimize, and approve all new mechanical drawings.
  • Ensure new products are mechanically designed to meet all applicable regulatory standards (MIL, ANSI, ASTM, etc…).
  • Use FEM tools to perform detailed analyses and generate reports to show compliance with customers’ environmental requirements like vibration, shock, temperature, and pressure.
  • Estimate costs of mechanical components utilized in new products, including material and labor of internally machined or fabricated housings/covers in support of quotes for new products.
  • Interface with Manufacturing Engineering to develop and optimize new and existing mechanical processes required to support new products.
  • Provide technical support to production and purchasing departments to ensure housing, covers and other mechanical components for prototypes are procured and delivered on time.
  • Develop, monitor, and update milestone charts for all projects in the department.
  • Participate in required project meetings: Project kick-offs, peer design reviews, schedule-reviews and pre-ship reviews.
  • Provide necessary mechanical engineering support during transition of new products to production.
  • Support mature products already in production that need design engineering support for improvement or optimization of mechanical components.
  • Educate, train, mentor and coach other design engineers, drafters and technicians that have less experience or knowledge in the mechanical engineering field.
  • Stay up to date on technology and industry trends and propose new materials and processes to management that can give the company a competitive advantage.

Knowledge, skills, & Abilities:

  • Must have advanced working knowledge of solid modeling and analysis using SolidWorks.
  • Excellent communication skills and ability to work well with others to perform a wide variety of tasks in a fast-paced engineering/production environment.
  • Desirable: Extensive knowledge of technologies and processes used in CNC machining, fabrication, plating, welding and EDM of aluminum and stainless-steel enclosures.
  • Desirable: Experience with MIL-STD and FAA level environmental testing.
  • Desirable: Experience and working knowledge Additive Manufacturing

Education, Experience, & Training:

  • BSME or equivalent relevant experience.
