Senior Product Design Engineer
Confirmed live in the last 24 hours
San Bruno, CA, USA
Experience Level
  • Minimum of 5 years of product development experience with proven track record shipping hardware through 2 product life cycles - concept, prototype, validation, production
  • Experience working from concept to production on a product containing sensitive component(s) where data quality was critical
  • Demonstrated CAD expertise in master and direct modeling where instantiating an idea, sketch and/or incorporating DfX feedback in 3D/2D and managing a 50+ part BOM is second nature
  • You apply GD&T to complex assemblies and understand how to design effective datum schemes at the onset for part assemblies for optimum cost/yield
  • Experience designing for high volume manufacturing processes - injection molding, sheet metal, castings, and material grades
  • Passion for elegant mechanical design at every level of detail - every part serves a purpose every gram of mass is accounted for
  • Able to utilize FEA for validating structural part designs prior to tooling kick off
  • Able to interface with other disciplines to understand other impacts to design
  • Know how to prototype quickly and effectively, using these iterative cycles to down-select multiple concepts down to one in 1-2 weeks
  • Excellent communication - written, verbal, and visual. You know how to tailor to your audience with the right level of technical depth
Desired Qualifications
  • Tooling design expertise - Your parts never have unwanted sink marks, knit lines, flash, or warpage because you know how to engineer it out before the tool is cut
  • Aerodynamics/Acoustics/Structural Vibrations simulation expertise
  • FEA expert - You know how to analyze non-linear, large displacement static loads and dynamic transient and random loads
  • Working knowledge using electrical components & microcontrollers (ex. raspberry pi)
  • Experienced design to aerospace or automotive level validation standards
