Job Description

This is a SENIOR MECHANICAL ENGINEER level product design and development position intended for those with relevant work experience in designing and manufacturing support of highly sophisticated and reliable communications infrastructure for professional and mission critical markets. Engineers in this position will function primarily as a mechanical engineer in large and/or complex team projects, as well as an individual contributor on smaller tasks and assignments. This role would also support method and process improvements on existing product lines. Responsibilities include:

– Preparing concept and prototype designs of mechanical systems as well as hands on design and analysis of individual parts and components, that meets customer requirements and expectations, reliability and robustness requirements, manufacturing processes and safety guidelines

– Designing and conducting experiments using statistical tools and techniques to confirm analyses, evaluating new or existing designs to conform to product specifications.

– Working with suppliers and commodity teams to meet cost and lead-times goals for tooling and piece parts.

– Modeling complex component and assembly designs using advanced 3D CAD tools, and interpreting and generating 2D drawings per mechanical drafting standards.

– Understanding of tolerances and effects on design.

– Setting up and maintaining bills of materials and releasing mechanical prints. Supporting prototype/pilot builds.

– Performing mechanical verification tests per products specifications and writing test reports .

– Compiling information for user manuals and/or instruction sheets.

During the development phase of a project, the candidate would work closely with other engineering groups, suppliers and the factories in Mexico, Malaysia, or Elgin, Illinois. Some travel may be required.

Specific Skills

* BSME required, MSME desirable.

* Minimum three years of product development experience in the design and development of mechanics for highly reliable electronics products.

* Experience designing: cast metals, sheet metal/stampings, injection molded plastics and compression molded rubbers, cables and connectors, and rigid and flexible printed circuit boards. Knowledge of DFA / DFM requirements is desirable.

* Hands-on experience and high proficiency with Creo Parametric (Pro/Engineer) 3D modeling and surfacing software, or equivalent, to design complex components and assemblies.
