  • Prepare and communicate best practices and standard procedure documentation to create efficiencies and streamline processes.
  • Provide design recommendations and/or solutions to Engineering team members.
  • Understand and apply geometric and form dimensioning and tolerancing calculations of multiple part assemblies.

Skills to be Successful:

  • Extensive experience using CAD software (designing, drafting, and concept iterations). Solidworks preferred.
  • Experience and aptitude in injection molding, die casting, sheet metal design and top level assembly management.
  • Familiarity with A-surface, UI/UX touchpoints and ergonomics.
