Be part of a revolution! Our company is redefining the listening experience for music. The Mechanical Engineering team at the company is developing designs that define the face, feel and sound of all  products. We are seeking individuals that have a crazy attention to detail, excited about clever engineering designs, curious about why things work (or don’t) and want to make insanely great products. Have fun every day on this fast paced, creative team and help take our company to explore new places in this space. If you love music, solving challenging problems and doing things the right way every time, we’d like to talk to you!

  • Responsible for mechanical system architecture of acoustic products, which include mechanical structural design, implementing industrial design (ergonomics, I/O, mounting, component volumetric constraints, etc.) and major component placements within concept and industrial designs, EMI considerations, electrical and thermal conductivity and materials selection.
  • Create electro-mechanical designs using Pro/Engineer Wildfire/Creo for plastic, die cast or thixo-molded, extruded, rubber and sheet metal components.
  • Interface with multiple internal partners (Industrial Design, Product Management, Sourcing,
  • Manufacturing, Acoustic, Electrical, and RF Engineering) and external partners (contract manufacturers, consultants, and suppliers)
  • Develop and implement accelerated tests to mitigate risks and qualify engineering designs during concept and product development; applying Design of Experiments (DOE) concepts to develop test plans to identify root causes and improve product robustness and performance.
  • Perform and document mechanical analysis, collateral, presentation materials, engineering documentation, appearance models, and prototypes.
  • Participate in tool design reviews and drive the part qualification process using statistical tools and process capability studies.
  • Monitor product performance in the field and work closely with manufacturing and component partners to perform failure analysis; drive corrective action.
  • Work closely with Asian suppliers on co-development and execution of your designs.


Required Experience:
-         Minimum of BS degree (or equivalent) in Mechanical Engineering or a related field. 7+ years work experience in product development in consumer electronics or electro-mechanical hardware design.
