We are seeking a well-established Sr. Mechanical Engineer to play a critical, leading role in our fast-growing, non-traditional, technology company. In this role, the Sr. Mechanical Engineer will drive the concept, mechanical design and development of next generation LED lighting products.
The Sr Mechanical Engineer will have strong and effective communications skills to coordinate with a cross-functional team to meet very aggressive performance, cost and schedule goals. These communication skills will be critical when partnering with management of outside resources for design, prototyping, and testing of new fixtures and concepts.
In depth expertise in manufacturing technologies is a prerequisite including experience in injection molded and extruded plastics, die cast and extruded aluminum, stamping, forming, and spinning of sheet metal. It is also critical to have knowledge in secondary and finishing operations including by not limited to post mold/cast machining, anodization, painting, hard coating, and vacuum metallization.
Since we are developing high technology lighting fixtures, broad experience with products requiring electronics packaging, thermal management, and aesthetic requirements are very important.
The Sr Mechanical Engineer will also create 2D drawings, BOMs, and other documentation necessary for product implementation; vendor selection; tooling trials (on-site and otherwise) to determine form, fit and functionality; documentation of new inventions and interaction with outside counsel to protect them.
