Mechanical Engineer

Responsibilities

  • We are seeking a full time Mechanical Engineer to join our growing lighting design and manufacturing company. As part of the Product Development team, the Mechanical Engineer is responsible for concept, planning, design and execution of new product and existing product enhancements. You work closely with other member of the product development team, including the electrical engineer, industrial designers, and the operations team in defining and executing the product’s mechanical goals and requirements.
  • Specifically, you will help define the new product brief with the design team, identifying early in the design process, any mechanical limitations and challenges. You conduct extensive research on materials and methods specified in the brief and conduct theoretical proof of concept analysis prior to preparing engineering models. Following the research stage, you begin production of preliminary mechanical models, while working closely with the electrical engineering and industrial design teams. During this process you work with the Operations team and with vendors to get preliminary pricing on critical components key to the mechanical design. You are then required to prepare detailed mechanical drawings for each component, as well as producing complete assembly drawings. You use your in-depth knowledge of metal properties and production processes to properly define the materials and production methods of each component in the new product. You carefully manage model revisions throughout product design iterations.
