Mechanical Engineer

Responsibilities

  • Hands-on fabrication of prototypes in company lab, using a variety of tools and processes (SLA & FDM 3D printers, laser cutter, band saw, lathe, etc.)

  • Design metal and plastic parts for prototyping and manufacturing (machining, injection molding, etc.) using CAD

  • Manage assemblies of parts and their fabrication/procurement lead time to hit product deadlines

  • Create engineering drawings using GD&T practices that will be used for fabrication at domestic and international vendors.

  • Develop standards operating procedures (SOP) for testing product performance

  • Execute tests and analyze testing data to improve the system performance and design.

  • Develop and improve assembly SOP for in-house builds and high-volume builds.
