Mechanical Engineer II

Summary:  

The Mechanical Engineer II is a member of the Systems Engineering Group, focused on designing new hardware modules and transitioning prototype mechanical concepts into existing ECD equipment. The incumbent will perform detailed engineering reviews of new designs and prototype module performance against established specifications using formal design and analysis tools such as FEA, DFA, DFM, Cost-Benefit, FMEA, SPC, and Root Cause Analysis. The candidate will also assist in creating test plans to verify functional performance and evaluate module robustness as well as life cycle testing. The position requires generation of assembly drawings and associated documentation for the formal release of engineering designs to production.

Key Responsibilities and Duties / Essential Functions:

  • Perform evaluation and redesign of new or existing prototypes for performance, DF(X), and cost improvements
  • Make substantive contributions to decisions regarding design and fabrication and assembly techniques
  • Generate all required layout, assembly, and detail drawings within the guidelines of documented configuration control procedures
  • Develop and execute performance and life cycle test plans
  • Assume a lead role in the assembly, debug, and test of any new hardware designs
  • Participate as a member of a cross-functional engineering team, interacting daily with other engineering disciplines, manufacturing, and service personnel
  • Other related duties as assigned

Job Requirements:

  • BS in Mechanical Engineering. (MS is preferred, but not required)
  • 3-5 years of experience designing capital equipment and/or complex engineering design problems, which employ multiple engineering disciplines, (such as:  Mechanics, Fluids, Pneumatics, Electronics, and Software)
  • Prior experience working with a standard ECN/ECO process
  • High proficiency developing 3-dimensional computer aided designs using PLM or PDM software, specifically SolidWorks EPDM
  • Ability to work effectively both independently, and as a member of a team consisting of other engineers, manufacturing, service, and process engineering personnel
  • Working knowledge of materials, tolerances, standards, and machine shop practices
  • Familiarity with a range of industry-standard part fabrication and finishing methods
  • Understanding of fluid pumps, fluidic control systems, tubes/tube routing, and fluid connection types
  • Working knowledge of pneumatics/pneumatic control systems
  • Understanding of machine electronics, (i.e. commercial sensors), and electro-mechanical control systems
  • Working knowledge of motors, (servo and stepper), and motion control systems
  • Excellent communication and organizational skills
  • Detail-oriented ability to ensure accuracy of work content
  • Ability to multi-task and adapt as priorities change
  • Willingness to work “hands on” with mechanical hardware, executing test plans, and collecting test data.
  • Someone that can be a self-starter and reliable to conduct their daily work and execute their work with limited supervision
