Senior Mechanical Design Engineer

Job Description:

We’re looking for a seasoned mechanical engineer to be a leader in developing our automatic tire inflation technology. We’re looking for someone who loves solving complex challenges, innovating efficient solutions, and coordinating a dynamic cross-functional team operation.

As a Senior Design Engineer, you will be responsible for the technical oversight of full product lifecycle developments for several key products and subsystems. Candidates should have experience developing a wide range of products, including pneumatic, electro-mechanical, and motorized systems, and/or sensorized components.

The right candidate will have experience leading engineering teams to develop robust systems capable of enduring harsh use-case environment. He/she must understand how to balance a rigorous system design process with efficient execution, prioritize effectively, and communicate clearly.

The Sr. Mechanical Design Engineer will be responsible for:

  • Integrating with cross-functional teams to efficiently develop high quality products
  • Provide technical guidance and leadership to mechanical engineering team
  • Identify verification methods (analysis, demonstration, test, etc.) and prototyping needs required to enable predictable and successful system builds
  • Facilitate the appropriate use of design reviews
  • Participating in design failure modes and effects analysis to help identify high risk areas for the development lifecycle
  • Ensure thorough documentation of studies and design decisions
  • Contribute to the success and development of individuals on the project team by defining clear expectations
