Mechanical Design Engineer

Great opportunity for an experienced Mechanical Design Engineer to manage the entire product development process from initial concept to market release. You’ll be tasked with the design, development and management of innovative solutions for the marine/subsea instrumentation industry. 

Your principal responsibilities will include things like design and development of new & existing products to internal and external customer driven specifications. You’ll need to verify and validate your electro-mechanical designs using classical hand calculations, finite element analysis (Ansys) as well as experimental testing. This may involve assembly of mechanical prototypes, environmental and type approval testing as required. 

This is a collaborative environment and you’ll need good open communication skills to work with internal colleagues as well as engaging with external suppliers. 

You’ll be working with a variety of materials used in harsh environments so this should be something you are familiar with as long term reliability is important to the success of this company.
