As a Senior Mechanical Engineer I you’ll have the opportunities to get involved in a wider scope of work compared to our larger competitors. While the workload is challenging, you are given the independence and autonomy to perform at your peak. This work requires thinking “outside of the box” in an innovative manner, so you must have the ability to collaborate with others to deliver creative solutions, work well under pressure and pay great attention to small details.
  • Apply sound engineering principles, product specifications and research data to create designs for systems and products for semiconductor industry.
  • Perform engineering calculations including structural and thermal analysis and fluid dynamics problems.
  • Create and revise Creo Parametric CAD models and detail drawings, ranging in complexity from simple piece parts to large assemblies
  • Determine feasibility of product proposals, resolve problems based on technical inputs and develop new designs maintaining product design safety criteria.
  • Prepare product/system designs and related engineering documentation for the manufacturing and testing of prototype and production released products. The documentation shall be complete and easy to follow.
  • Project management duties include report generation, schedule creation and maintenance, design reviews and interdepartmental coordination.
  • Provide assistance in establishing product configuration and structures on new products and features in both development and manufacturing environments.
  • Present and participate in design reviews for unique customer driven specials, product enhancements and other new designs.
  • Create, manage and execute engineering project plans, including task scheduling with Gantt charts and resource and cost estimates, using MS Project.
  • Travel to customer sites to participate in technical discussions.
  • Assist marketing, customers and vendors in preparation of cost estimates dealing with nonstandard options, new system features and product enhancements.
  • Support projects in conjunction with technical staff, managers and manufacturing groups. Support development and testing of hardware to verify performance. Create test plans, verify and approve test procedures.
