Duties and Responsibilities

  • Designing, prototyping, and building mechanical modules of the robotic system.
  • Implementing rigorous testing protocols and iterating on designs to drive long term reliability.
  • Building and maintaining detailed component CAD models that integrate with high-level CAD assemblies.
  • Applying DFM on early-stage part designs to drive down manufacturing costs.
  • Working within a multidisciplinary team to ideate, review and improve product designs.
  • Identifying suppliers and vendors for various components within the robotic system.
  • Maintaining inventory and BOM for parts within the system.
  • Integrating mechanical modules with other systems (electrical, electronic, software etc.)
  • Working with third-party vendors to procure and build parts
  • Establishing supply chain and assembly paths for larger-scale manufacturing
  • Design and simulate component parts to reduce cost and increase reliability
  • Experience in deploying complex electro-mechanical systems at scale
