Design Engineers work closely with experienced engineers, customers and suppliers from the design stage to production for 1-2 programs. A successful Design Engineer is hands-on and has strong technical background. These skills, combined with flexibility, a problem-solving orientation, solid communication skills and attention to detail, enable successful program implementation.

Initially follow program from prototype build through launch and eventually apply product knowledge to new product development/design. Design Engineer will potentially take part in product design, prototype build, supplier development, product build, production line development and launch, program launch and first pass yield reduction. For mechanical engineers this may include making calculations to establish acceptable standards of performance, selection of materials, heat treatment, and assembly process.
  • Coordinate Build and Testing of Prototypes. Work closely with Lab Technicians or individually to develop necessary tests for product. A strong Design Engineer is not only able to describe the necessary testing but also aid in debugging the determined procedures.

  • Scale Steep Learning Curve. Rapidly expand product knowledge, abilities, and job specific toolkit (Pro-E; hydraulics; magnetics; software - testing and engineering applications) to apply to product design and program launch.
  • Provide Exemplary Customer Service & Communication. Design engineer will work closely with customer during program launch to execute requests, respond to questions and build collaboration across teams (both internal and external) as necessary. Customers should never receive unexpected major design changes.
  • Strong Team Player and Contributor. Able to work well with colleagues and produce results within a fast-paced and high-pressure atmosphere.


  • Bachelor Degree in Engineering, preferred emphasis in Mechanical or related Engineering discipline.
