Requirements
  • BS/MS degree in Mechanical Engineering required. Masters degree preferred.
  • 7+ years of mechanical engineering experience designing, building and testing mechanical systems or robots.
  • Experience working in a team that designed, manufactured, shipped and supported products.
  • Proficiency in CAD (Modeling, Assemblies, Drawings, Motion); SolidWorks or OnShape experience preferred.
  • Experience using PLM systems, assigning part and assembly numbers.
  • Ability to perform Machine Design analysis (bolted joints, stress/strain, load path/free body diagrams, dynamics/kinematics, analysis assumption) using both hand calculations and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) for design validation.
  • Proficiency in using GD&T (ASME Y14.5) for creating detailed part/assembly drawings.
  • Knowledge of various manufacturing processes, specifically machining, sheet metal bending, laser cutting and welding.
  • Experience using 3D printing for rapid prototyping (Formlabs, Flashforge, Ender, Ultimaker, Makerbot).
  • Experience in integrating and validating automated systems.
  • Experience using Confluence and Jira.
  • Ability to communicate well with people from different areas of expertise, from customers to designers to software developers.
  • Strong attention to detail, analytical skills and ability to learn at hyperspeed.
  • Able to work daily in our Headquarters in Pasadena, CA.
  • Able to lift around 30 lbs.
Responsibilities
  • Define hardware requirements and perform system level design trades with the product team.
  • Collaborate closely with product managers, software, and other mechanical engineers to evaluate and optimize designs for customer needs, reliability, and ease of deployment into a live restaurant environment.
  • Lead the full development cycle of various robot subsystems (mechanical, electronic, software, etc.) to meet defined performance requirements. This includes architecture definition, component selection, system design, analysis, testing, qualification, etc.
  • Take ownership of the hardware delivery timeline and overall success from concept to deployment.
  • Design, prototype, and build mechanical modules for robotic systems.
  • Implement rigorous testing protocols, creating testing documentation and test designs.
  • Iterate on designs to drive long term reliability.
  • Build and maintain detailed component CAD models.
  • Apply DFM on early-stage part designs to drive down manufacturing costs.
  • Work within a team to ideate, review and improve product designs.
  • Identify and evaluate component suppliers and vendors.
  • Maintain inventory and BOM for parts within the system.
  • Integrate mechanical modules with other systems (electrical, electronic, software etc.)
  • Work with third-party vendors to procure and build parts.
  • Aide in establishing supply chain and assembly paths for large-scale manufacturing.
  • Design and simulate component parts to reduce cost and increase reliability.
  • Deploy complex electro-mechanical systems at scale.
  • Participate in design sessions with your team to build a shared understanding of the product.
  • Attend daily stand ups with your team where you strategize on the work for the day.
  • Maintain documentation on the systems you create.
