Lead Mechanical Engineer - Automation Machinery

Cambridgeshire/Hertfordshire Border

30K - 65K+ Dependant on experience

I'm searching for a Mechanical Engineer with a background in automated machinery to join a start-up, helping them solve challenging technical issues. The job will be very varied, as you would expect from a start-up - from developing concepts and prototyping hardware, to design-for-manufacture of whole machine subsystems, to getting spanners out and building and testing machines.

Duties & Responsibilities

Developing and analysing concept solutions to address new challenges

Designing, building and testing prototypes

Gathering requirements from the rest of the team

Generating manufacturing drawings, BOMs and other documentation

Contributing to FMEAs

Drawing control

Writing test documentation

Required skills and experience

3-10yrs experience of machinery design, ideally for high volume production

The ability to flex quality and speed: from quick proof-of-concept work, to "right first time" design for manufacture, assembly and maintenance

Proficiency in Inventor or Solidworks required (will be using Autodesk Inventor)

Ability to get stuck in with the team but also solve problems independently

Tolerance analysis skills & structural FEA would be beneficial

Dynamics simulation and thermal analysis skills would be beneficial
