Moog Inc., was founded in 1951 when Bill Moog had one product and a vision of company culture so strong that it became the foundation of the company that we are today. We operate within a culture of trust and mutual respect, allowing our engineers to collaborate and produce cutting edge technology, as well as aiding our business in the ability to share goals and achieve them together. Our lines of precision motion control technology can be seen at the forefront of military and commercial aircraft markets, space exploration, and oil and gas markets to name a few.
Our Aircraft Group in East Aurora, NY is hiring for a Senior Product Engineer.
This position is responsible to support the development of complex electromechanical, electro-hydraulic and electro-pneumatic components and systems that will become the new products of Moog. As part of the New Product Introduction Team, the primary focus will be on developing all aspects of the manufacturing, build, and test functions required to introduce a new product line at MOOG. The incumbent, a fully trained professional, plans and conducts efforts requiring judgment in the independent evaluation, selection, and substantial adaptation and modification of standard engineering techniques, procedures, and criteria to accomplish the team goals.
Nature and Scope:
The Senior Product Engineer is a key contributor for the transition from conceptual design to full production of MOOG products on military and commercial aerospace vehicles and equipment. The products of Moog generally are unique for each customer and application. Therefore, most new applications require new tooling, equipment, and processes while attempting to leverage existing designs as much as possible. The Senior Product Engineer generally will operate as part of a larger team of designers, contract administrators, program managers, test equipment engineers and other specialists to deploy the production environment of a new product. The incumbent will coordinate the work of drafters, technicians, design analysts, manufacturing engineers and others who assist in specific assignments as needed.
In the early stages of a new program, the product team will consult with internal functions such as Design and Program Management as the product manufacturing environment is developed to ensure that the eventual final design is producible and entail lessons learned from legacy product.
As the product design matures, the Senior Product Engineer will assume more responsibility to ensure that all aspects of the production environment are accounted for. This will include such duties as making sure customer requirements are met and maintained, leading ongoing design changes as needed, specifying and helping to design general tooling all the way up to complex test equipment, specifying and establishing production metrics, creating and maintaining production processes and ultimately training production personnel on the new product line. In the end, the Senior Product Engineer will ensure that the production environment of the new product line is stabilized at which point the responsibilities will be handed over to the Production Sustainment team. In the course of normal Product Engineering duties, some travel can be expected, both domestically and internationally, to support Customer, Vendor and other MOOG facility visits.
Here is an idea of what you'll be accountable for:
Contribute to the development of new product design by working with the design team to support Design for Assembly/ Design for Manufacturing concepts as well as providing lessons learned from legacy product designs.
Create written specifications and support design of moderate to complex test equipment.
Be a key contributor to early designs, tooling, and cost estimates, for new product designs.
Operate as a key element in a team of creative, independent individuals.
Training, coordinating and evaluating the efforts of Product Engineers, Associate Product Engineers and Co-ops to support department goals.
Developing a robust manufacturing process and associated documentation so that the new product can be manufactured efficiently with no chance of error.
Collaborate with multiple internal resources while performing MRB, NOE, or FAR analysis.
To be considered for this position:
The Senior Product Engineer will possess the following professional experiences:
Detailed working knowledge of hydraulic or mechanical actuation products or electronics (or related technologies), both top level and subassemblies
Detailed working knowledge of hydraulic or mechanical actuation products or electronics (or related technologies) assembly and test areas, including extensive interfacing with technicians
