Summary of Role:
We want people who work well in teams, can brainstorm big ideas, work in new technology areas, able to drive a concept into a prototype, and can envision how a prototype could transition into a high-volume consumer product. Starting with a broad mechanical engineering background, you are willing to become an expert in new areas and quickly build new prototypes using novel materials, opto-mechanical design, or by integrating structures in new ways. We’re looking for a hands-on builder of opto-mechanical systems that can deal with sub-micron tolerances.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Lead Mechanical Engineering efforts in a cross-functional team environment.
  • Be able to brainstorm new architectures and converge on feasible mechanical designs.
  • Build, test, and refine prototypes and/or high precision test fixtures.
  • Provide mechanical guidance to greater team of researchers and hardware engineers.
  • Push state of the art technologies and approaches to solving complex mechanical problems.

 

Skills Requirements:

  • BS or higher in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent experience.
  • 5+ years of mechanical engineering experience
  • Experience in 3D modeling
  • Experience working in a consumer electronics product environment
  • Testing and analysis capability (FEA, Simulation, Zemax, Ray Tracing skills, etc.).
  • Knowledge of manufacturing techniques (Machining, 3D printing, injection molding, etc.).

 

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with NX (Design, Manufacturing)
  • Experience with Solidworks, 3D Modeling software
  • Design and prototyping of head mounted optics systems.
  • Experience setting up optical bench top assemblies including linear and angular adjustments.
  • GD&T knowledge and practical application for precision optics or other components.
  • Experience with mechanical and optics metrology devices such as CMM, OMM, interferometry.
  • Knowledge of optics component mounting, interfaces, and adhesive bonding.
  • Familiar with optics manufacturing techniques (glass lens, plastic lens, coatings).
  • Knowledge of servo and electro-mechanical systems
  • Knowledge of materials and structural modeling/optimization
