VIEW JOBS 11/5/2019 12:00:00 AM 2020-02-03T00:00 Job Description Summary The Senior Engineer position is a technical leadership position, responsible for leading the mechanical engineering activities to develop and commercialize complex instrumentation in the medication safety space. The individual would have responsibility for working cross-functionally to understand end-user requirements and mapping them to design specifications and developing an efficient architecture, ensuring a detailed and well-tested design. This position's responsibilities includes defining, clarifying, and documenting requirements; performing (or ensuring the team performs) the necessary parametric analysis and tradeoffs; define form factor, design the architect layout and sub-assemblies, recognizing when interface impacts might occur and taking early action to avoid problems. The responsibilities can include, but are not limited to: decomposing system level requirements to mechanical design definition, analysis and problem solving, architect layout and detailed sub-assemblies and components design, design qualification and test activities and collaboration/coordination with other R&D functional teams to integrate the full system and realize the functionality and performance. The Senior Engineer will be expected to interpret requirements and rationalize the design choices with the multi-disciplinary team, leveraging quantitative approaches and knowledge of both mechanical design and manufacturing considerations, design, assemble and evaluate rapid prototype models in order to assess technical feasibility of various solutions. Ability to work in a "hands on" manner to develop engineering prototypes, work with external suppliers, qualify and select optimal parts is critical to success.
