Position Summary

RE2 Robotics has two open Senior Mechanical Engineer positions. The Senior ME works in a cooperative team environment with other mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, software engineers, designers and technicians.  Designs, analyzes and tests robotic systems and components and supports them in production.  Prepares design specifications, mechanical drawings, test specifications and technical reports. Reports to Manager of Mechanical Engineering. At a fundamental level, the following requirements are absolute for this position. If you possess the following, please consider applying today!

  1. B.S. in Mechanical Engineering with a minimum of 7 years of engineering work experience
  2. Proficiency in precision machine design in low to medium quantities (1 to 1000 units) using a formal design process; progressing from requirements analysis through component design, system design, and assembly.
  3. Proficiency in integrated system design and analysis using 3D CAD/CAE, to include structural and thermal analysis, drive train design, motor specification, material/finish selection, and manufacturing processes.
  4. U.S. Citizenship or permanent residency in order to comply with Government Contract

 

Responsibilities

The Senior Mechanical Engineer (SME) reports to the mechanical engineering department manager and is responsible for carrying out medium level development assignments with minor supervision. Working on collaborative cross-discipline project teams, the SME will serve as the senior technical member related to the mechanical design on one or multiple concurrent projects. In addition to mechanical engineering, the SME provides system engineering, analysis, concept development, detailed design expertise. This expertise runs through all stages of the development process from requirements definition through design, drawing, system build, integration, verification, and production. Throughout the prototyping and production phases, the SME will work with internal and external machine shops for component fabrication and with engineers and technicians for system assembly and integration.

The SME must manage their time effectively to meet project, departmental, and company goals, milestones, and budgets. The SME is also expected to provide senior level guidance to less experienced mechanical engineers and system engineering and mechanical guidance to electrical and software engineers at all levels.

The SME contributes to the company advancement by assisting in the development and implementation of policies and procedures for the engineering group as a whole and the mechanical engineering department in particular. The SME is also expected to prepare and conduct presentations on the technical design for both internal design reviews and external customer meetings. The SME provides expertise to business development efforts to prepare government proposals and may travel infrequently to customer and supplier sites.
