Position Description and Responsibilities: 
Essential Functions performed with moderate direction from supervisor
Must efficiently and effectively:

  • Provide technical leadership to design team and help team-members organize thinking around:
    • System topology and constraints
    • Design configuration(s) and trade-offs
    • Detailed engineering requirements for all disciplines
  • Generate Engineering calculations in support of stress analysis, deflections, strain deviations, vibration and shock, thermal equilibria, fluid-flow, dynamic motions, force requirements, energy and frictional analysis
  • Generate Free-body diagrams for use in fundamental analysis of forces and moments
  • Develop draft-level protocols for specific tests in support of robust mechanical designs, targeting working ranges from multiple variables for static and dynamic mechanisms.
  • Perform mechanical stack-up calculations, tolerance analysis, and variation (monte-carlo simulations) analysis of design solutions
  • Perform the above functions in relation to project schedules throughout the Concept, Design, Verification, and Validation process.
  • Create 3-D solid models using SolidWorks software
  • Draft 2-D prints according to ASME Y.14.5
  • Utilize geometric dimensioning and tolerancing methodology in 2-D print drafting
  • Fundamental Familiarity with design of injection molded plastic parts, stamped metal components, joining and fastening techniques, and adhesives
  • Familiarity and ability to perform failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA)
  • Ability to thoroughly document design decision history, test and observation activities in a formal manner using either Project Notes or Formal Test Reports
  • Build, Test and evaluate prototypes

Additional Responsibilities

  • Write draft design verification/validation protocols
  • Write draft design verification/validation reports
  • Seek the appropriate incremental approvals in a cross-functional team environment
  • Interface with other internal and external departments affected by design and development


Position Qualifications:

  • Minimum of B.S. Mechanical Engineering or Aeronautical Engineering.
  • 5+ years design experience resulting in 1 or more electro-mechanical products on the market
  • 3+ years SolidWorks, and 4+ years on other industry accepted 3-D CAD system
  • knowledgeable concerning plastic processing and part design for injection molding
  • knowledgeable concerning printed circuit board CAD and 3-D Cad integration
  • Working knowledge of QSR/ISO Quality System Requirements
  • Working knowledge of Good Laboratory Practices (GLP)
  • Working knowledge of ANSI drafting practices
  • Must enjoy working in a fast paced, work intensive, and milestone driven culture.
  • Must have experience in designing with a variety of materials including engineering thermoplastics, stainless steel, beryllium copper, tin, polyester film, closed cell foam, and adhesives.
  • Must have basic knowledge of fabrication processes including, stamping, die cutting, injection molding, casting, grinding to make medical piercing tools, insert molding, and adhesive systems.
  • Must be capable of cause and effect analysis and description techniques such as Ishikawa diagrams, Pugh Charts, Pareto analysis, and Process Flow diagrams.
  • Must fully understand material data sheets, stress, strain, thermal, and chemical resistance.
  • Must be capable of working with peers and subordinates on a multidisciplinary team.
  • Working knowledge of ASME Y14.2M-1995, geometric dimensioning and tolerances, and the application of these to production documentation
