Full-time Mechanical Engineer / Taiwan

Job description

A new product concept is in development, and you’re invited to give perspective on the mechanical challenges. When the product concept solidifies, you start brainstorm the mechanical structure in collaboration with the industrial designer. In close contact with the industrial designers and electronic engineer you will be challenged to create smarter or different solutions to create a cost efficient and affect mechanical build for the product. A solid idea and plan emerges.

You get started with the industrial designer to make a viable product that can be communicated to the manufacturer by the for prototyping. You closely collaborate with the industrial designers by giving feedback on mechanical solution and add these solutions to the 3D drawings up to the point that there is a workable 3D design. A lot of the design concepts are pre-tested with practical, hands-on methods, such as 3D printing.

During the valuation process with our partner manufacturer the team all play their part, and yours will be ensuring the integrity of the (mechanical) parts, materials, and assembly for the production process. You spot (material, mold, mechanical) issues, give feedback, and create solutions in collaboration with the project manager, industrial designer, and partner manufacturer. You’re pro-actively looking for issues and solve them before they can occur. No shortcuts.

The product goes into production, customers start using it, and feedback arises. You review the feedback, find possible reasons, and create solutions to prevent it from happening in future productions.

In the meanwhile you entertain and challenge yourself with new mechanical solution to our existing products or future products with the aim to improve its experience, innovate, lower cost, or train yourself.

You are in frequent contact with your colleagues in Taiwan including the industrial designers,  project manager, and electronics engineer. In addition, you are in contact with the CEO and CTO during product development and problem solving.
