Position Overview

Support the design and manufacture of medical devices, including creating 3-D designs using a design software such as SolidWorks, generating detailed 2-D drawings, writing engineering requirements, developing test methods and designing test fixtures, supporting product manufacturing and problem solving issues through design, development, design transfer launch and post market phases.

Work closely with R&D counterparts, Operations, Quality, and Regulatory in supporting the development of new products and manufacturing processes to achieve a smooth, successful transfer to Manufacturing Engineering and Production for launch and continue supporting product sustaining. Job duties:
  • Work in cross functional teams to identify customer needs and develop system requirements, specifications, designs, and drawings to meet these needs.
  • Ability to translate abstract ideas into design solutions using variety of methods including but not limited to simple hand sketches, 3D models, mock-ups and prototypes.
  • Communicate technical concepts effectively to non-technical team members to facilitate cross functional understanding.
  • Develop test plans, protocols, and reports as part of design verification and validation.
  • Develop designs that are robust and optimized for manufacturability.
  • Evaluate different design solutions and components to determine optimum solution for the application.
  • Develop and test protypes as required during the course of product development.
  • Release revision-controlled designs and documentation in document control system.
  • Support the design transfer of product from R&D to Manufacturing for volume production.
  • Train Technicians to assemble and test mechanical systems.
  • Develop and maintain vendor relationships.
  • Assist with solving technical challenges encountered during manufacturing.
  • Support post market sustaining efforts (i.e. complaint investigations, product training).
  • Perform additional duties as assigned.

    1. Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering.
