Mechanical Engineer 

Position Summary

Energetiq is seeking a Mechanical Engineer to join a dynamic and growing technology company, working with a team of engineers and scientists bringing new products from development to production. In this role you will be responsible for developing and expanding the commercially available laser driven light source portfolio. A successful candidate will have a strong understanding of mechanical engineering fundamentals (structural, thermal, flow and vibration analysis), mechanical design for machined and sheet metal components, and knowledge of GD&T and mechanical tolerance analysis. Designs are expected to follow current best practices for DFM, DFT, and reliability/quality (including adherence to relevant safety/regulatory/certification requirements). The right candidate must be able to succeed in an entrepreneurial environment and not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities.

Key Responsibilities 

  • Responsible for the design of mechanical systems from concept to release to manufacturing.
  • Create mechanical (and opto-mechanical) systems/sub-systems to meet performance requirements
  • Perform analytical analysis for thermal and structural components and sub-modules
  • Analyzes sources of design variation at system and subsystem level by performing tolerance (mechanical tolerance stack-up) analysis
  • Participates in FMEA/DFMEA, risk assessment and mitigation activities
  • Support driving full documentation of design including, BOM, drawings, and procedures

Minimum Requirements & Qualifications

Qualifications & Experience
