Job Description

JOB SUMMARY

The Mechanical Design Lead Engineer is responsible for leading the design, development and testing of complex mechanical hardware designs for customer or innovation projects.  Responsible for ensuring that technical milestones are achieved.  Responsible for guiding other team members' mechanical designs and leads technical design reviews.  

Lead and manage cross-organizational effort to design, develop and implement robust designs with proper verification, and design for manufacturability for seamless product introduction. Systematic analysis of complex technical data to understand device function and root cause device failures. This engineer will have demonstrated experience at releasing products into a production environment.

ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Leader in developing and validating complex mechanical products that are required across different product segments 

  • Interfacing with Electrical and ECAD teams for Mechanical-Electrical integration activities

  • Directs all aspects of mechanical design with minimal supervision 

  • Identifies material, process, tooling, automation, and equipment selection. 

  • Mentors/coaches/trains engineers with less experience 

  • Partners with system architects to review and clarify design requirements and define the appropriate mechanical/thermal architecture. 

  • Experience with part creation in different stages of the design cycle (3D printing, Soft and Hard tooling) 

  • Expertly assemble prototypes and verifies form/fit/function.  

  • Perform customer design reviews on “design for assembly” and provide optimization proposals 

  • Work with and manage external component suppliers (in close cooperation with Jabil’s supply chain)/manufacturers and provide input to their product roadmaps
