Sr. Mechanical Engineer (Direct Hire)


Job Requisition: 7168

Description for Sr. Mechanical Engineer: 

The Senior Mechanical Engineer will oversee the engineering development of various consumer and commercial products, from concept to initial production. This person will oversee technical aspects of product development. This involves managing resources, collaborating with project managers, leading engineering teams, conducting analysis, ensuring designs meet standards, supporting technology transfers, conducting patent research, and contributing to new business development. Additionally, this person will be a leader mentoring junior engineers.

Responsibilities for Sr. Mechanical Engineer:

  • Manage technical resources within the constraints of the Scope-Of-Work (SOW).
  • Recommend any necessary SOW changes to the Project Manager, Sr. Project Manager or Program Director.
  • Manage engineers, mechanical designers and prototype technicians in the transition from feasibility prototypes to production-ready designs.
  • Support the Project Manager in the presentation of solutions to the client to communicate the inherent advantages, challenges and tradeoffs associated with different technology options.
  • Collaborate with consumer research and industrial design associates to translate consumer research discoveries into product requirements.
  • Perform FEA structural and thermal mechanical design analysis
  • Review the general patent landscape to discover issues potentially affecting design. Draft invention disclosures. Collaborate with outside patent counsel on more formal IP research.
  • Coordinate technical feasibility studies, including design, fabrication and evaluation of proof-of-concept prototypes. Collaborate with prototype technicians on the fabrication, testing, and iterative improvements of prototypes, providing task-level assistance where necessary.
  • Ensure that designs meet applicable standards and requirements (UL/CSA, IEC, ISO, etc.).
  • Support the sourcing group on technology transfers to potential manufacturers. Provide task-level assistance to the sourcing group as necessary (e.g., site visits, communications).
  • Coordinate independent technical research and engineering studies.
  • Participate in periodic project internal and client meetings to ensure continuity and cohesion amongst the team.
  • Demonstrate the ability to respect and support colleagues at all levels. Consistently contribute to a positive work environment for all associates. Mentor junior associates.
  • Assist the New Business Development team in the generation of Scope-Of-Work (SOW) documentation.

Requirements for Sr. Mechanical Engineer: 

  • Minimum of 10 years of experience in the engineering new product development of related products
  • Minimum of 10 years of experience with mass production methods, including thermoplastic & elastomeric molding, sheet metal stamping, extrusion, automated assembly, coating and plating. (At least 2 of these, Plastic Injection Molding is a must) 
  • Minimum of 10 years of hands-on experience in the development of complex consumer and/or medical products including:
  • Complex electro-mechanical devices.           
  • Large 3D CAD assemblies (CREO).
  • Demonstrated experience in Design of Experiment and technical feasibility studies.
  • Familiarity with functionality of major types of mechanical components like gear drives, hydraulic and pneumatic pumps, etc.
  • Proficiency with the application of (CFD) computational flow dynamics and (FEA) finite element analysis in the engineering development of related products (structural and thermal).
  • Competent in CREO Mechanisms Dynamic Analysis - able to model and apply constraints and boundary conditions to analyze complex mechanisms in CREO. General kinematic design experience.
  • The ability and desire to ‘flex’ between medical, consumer, industrial product types.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Project Management Skillset 
  • BSME or MSME or related Engineering Degree 

Nice to Have:

  • Consultancy experience with at least one prior employer.
  • Advanced proficiency in PTC Creo CAD software or SolidWorks CAD software, including complex surfacing and advanced assembly modeling. 
  • Proficiency in using ANSYS TM CFD and FEA in the engineering development of related products.
  • Experience in global component sourcing and vendor selection.
  • Experience with site visits to offshore manufacturers.
  • Experience working within a multi-disciplinary team environment.
