1. Mechanical Engineering Manager

This position manages the overall mechanical engineering department of a small precision manufacturing business. It requires someone capable of both managing projects and being a hands on chief mechanical engineer with a solid precision mechanical design background, ideally in the motion control/stage design environment. In addition, the hire needs to thrive in a small, start-up environment but have the experience to grow with us to a higher level with defined, established processes.

What you will get to do:

  • Lead the Mechanical Engineering team through a collaborative design development process. Provide mentoring to engineers of all levels and departments.
  • Develop standard products and custom solutions for a variety of industries such as Biomedical Instrumentation, Microscopy, Material Research, and Optical Instrumentation such as lasers.
  • Work with a cross-functional team throughout the entire product lifecycle.
  • Interface with customers.
  • Ensure products and systems are designed and released to manufacturing on time and within budget.

 

What will make you successful:

  • Bachelor's, Master’s or PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering or related field.
  • Hands on experience in SolidWorks and it’s tool sets such as FEA, motion and thermal analysis.
  • At least 5 years of mechanical design development engineering experience.
  • Ability to organize and sequence simultaneous projects.
  • Strong understanding of mechanical principles, precision stage and motion design strongly preferred.
  • Understanding of manufacturing processes from welding and conventional milling to 3D printing.
  • Experience troubleshooting and debugging equipment.
  • Must have the current and continuing right to work in the United States of America without sponsorship.
