  • Execute on all phases of hardware development including requirements capture, prototyping, design validation, and manufacturing readiness
  • Design block diagrams and select components for various systems
  • Conduct failure mode analysis of safety critical hardware
  • Create and execute design of experiments for decisions on architecture, component selection, and manufacturing processes as necessary
  • Support manufacturing, vehicle integration, and validation

Basic Qualifications

  • BS in Mechanical Engineering or similar Engineering discipline
  • 5+ years of professional or project experience in hardware development, machine design, or validation
  • Mechanical Engineering skills including mechanical drawing creation and GD&T, structural analysis, selection of materials and processes, understanding of failure mechanisms, and analytical/scientific programming (e.g. Python, Matlab, Simulink, etc.)
