Senior Development Engineer
Join a global team dedicated to New Product Development in the Low Voltage Motor Control Center Business, responsible for CENTERLINE 2100 and 2500 MCC Products. This is a Senior Mechanical Development Engineering position that will participate as a member of cross-functional Development teams which develop leading industrial control products. Create and prove the feasibility of design concepts and track the functional requirements of programs relative to product cost, performance, and timing. May lead functional portion of a project through its entire design cycle. Accountable to meet product requirements and design specifications. Create sound Engineering documentation and records as specified by our Common Product Development Process. Must be able to evaluate and develop various designs and manufacturing methods to optimize product functionality and manufacturability. Additional responsibilities include supervising major tooling orders, overseeing functional and certification testing, and directing one or more mechanical designers through the execution of a project.
