  • Verify and improve the feasibility of solution designs through cycle time analysis and reach studies
  • Be a simulation expert for the internal team and an engineering contact for client system designs and customer site visits
  • Create custom layouts and BOMs for client systems, both in pre-sales concept phase and post-contract development phase
  • Investigate new methods and technologies, improve existing simulation processes, and identify bottlenecks to the solution design phase
  • Be an active member of a startup environment, with an all-hands-on-deck attitude as we grow the HW and Operations teams

Who you are

  • Earned a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Computer Science, or other related field
