  • Work on full product design life cycle, including requirements gathering, concept generation, detailed design with analysis, verification testing, cross-functional reviews, and manufacturing release.
  • Develop and execute designs for complex systems, supported by thorough engineering analysis, including thermal and FEA simulations.
  • Deliver robust solutions for interconnect systems, such as mating of high density interconnects.
  • Influence and shape future products by providing mechanical engineering insight into the technology roadmap.



At a minimum we’d like you to have:


  • BA/BS degree in Mechanical Engineering, or equivalent practical experience
  • 5 years of experience in design and analysis of electronics packaging

It’s preferred if you have:

  • MS in Mechanical Engineering
  • 10 years of mechanical design and analysis experience
  • Excellent working knowledge of mechanical engineering and design principles in electronics and/or automotive applications
  • Expertise with NPI, medium-scale, and high-volume production
  • Expertise around sheet metal, injection molding, casting, electrical interconnect systems, heat extraction, and vibration control
  • Extensive experience in designing complex electro-mechanical assemblies with an expert understanding of mechanical tolerances and ability to perform detailed tolerance loop analysis
