Job Description:


At quip, we design and deliver delightful products and services that keep your mouth healthy and we are looking for a Mechanical Engineer to help continue with this growth.

The ideal candidate can confidently build our product portfolio, including both existing and in-process mechatronic products. You will dive deep into materials, methods, and innovate entirely new production methodology to support innovative products that the team invents together. You will be operating on a team of 6 designers and engineers to make real and aggressive product roadmaps that impact hundreds of thousands of quip subscribers.  You’ll work with complex assemblies across multiple disciplines and contribute engineering rigor to the concepting, prototyping, and design of our newest products. Those projects will involve advanced sensors and PCBAs, precision CNC, high-cavitation plastic injection, and world-class tier 1 CMs. You’ll mostly work out of our DUMBO Brooklyn office, but with the option to troubleshoot problems in-person with foreign teams local in India, South China and other territories.  You should be familiar with factory environments, international supplier relationships, and working past language barriers to communicate nuanced concepts.

quip’s Innovation Team prides itself on creative problem solving that bucks most ordinary practice. When we envision a product with unparalleled user experience, it requires a rigor of method, a depth of intelligence, and a penchant for delight not found in everyday products. If you’re ridiculously passionate about good design and good engineering, we want to talk.

  • Understanding of 2D prints, tolerance stack-up analysis, and complications arising from high-cavitation mold making.
  • Expertise with final fit and finish that provides unparalleled user experience across every snap, hinge, button, and parting line.
  • Understanding of mold making, both its opportunities and challenges
  • Comfort with rapid development cycles and ability to remain flexible in the face of ambiguity; Our rapid pace of innovation means our design thinking is constantly in flux
