    • 1+ years of relevant hands-on hardware experience at a startup or top-tier engineering firm
    • 1+ years of relevant thermal design experience at a startup or top-tier engineering firm
    • Outstanding understanding of mechanical design, including vibration, thermal management, design for affordability, and design for manufacturability
    • Understanding of conventional and non-conventional manufacturing processes and experience working with internal and external manufacturers
    • Experience with Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
    • Demonstrated design creativity through IP generation or problem-solving
    • Proficiency with basic ME tools (Computer Aided Design, Finite Element Analysis, Simulation)
    • Ability to perform prototyping and basic fabrication (drilling, cutting, machining, grinding, soldering, 3D printing, etc.)
    • Understanding of material science and coatings
    • Mastery of GD&T in accordance with ASME Y14.5-2009
    • Excellent written and oral communication skills
      Nice to Have
      • MS or Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering
      • Knowledge of environmental, reliability, and safety requirements for Medical, Industrial, and Aerospace applications
      • Experience designing enclosures for electromechanical box build assembly
      • Experience selecting and working with contract manufacturers locally and abroad
      • Startup experience
        Working with us
        We are building things that were once considered impossible, so it is challenging and exciting work. You will work in collaboration with a dedicated team and impressive clients.
