This is a new role. As a Senior Mechanical Engineer at Fellow, you will be working on helping with the core engineering of next generation consumer coffee products. The candidate will be expected to be able to tackle design, manufacturing, and technical challenges using engineering fundamentals.
In this role you will be able to influence engineering from concept through to mass production. In addition to design and analysis, you will work to improve current product lines. This is a key hire that will allow Fellow to expand their internal engineering capabilities.
This role is unique in that you will have the ability to have an impact across multiple products. You won't be working on one specific component of one large product forever. The work will change and be interesting week to week, month to month!
The individual will have tall order goals to achieve quickly in this role.
6 month time frame - Bring all current outside designs in house for full ownership
9 months - Have significant impact on at least one new product design through formal release
This role will work directly with the newly formed engineering team along with the Product team.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ROLE WILL START REMOTE DUE TO COVID. ONCE RESTRICTIONS LIFT, THE POSITION WILL REQUIRE YOU TO BE IN THE OFFICE. BECAUSE OF THIS WE ARE LOOKING FOR LOCAL CANDIDATES IN THE BAY AREA.
WE DO NOT PROVIDE SPONSORSHIP AT THIS TIME.
The right person for this role will possess the following.
At least a 4 year degree in Mechanical Engineering from an accredited university. The fundamentals of mechanical engineering are critical for success in this role.
Deep experience with designing products from conception through production, with the technical aptitude to backup their design choices.
Exceptional CAD skills. We currently use Solidworks 2020 for mass production and OnShape for quick concepting.
Able to design for high volume manufacturing (injection molding, forming, stamping, etc.).
Prior track record of launching successful products.
Able to work collaboratively across multiple groups to break down requirements and implement solutions that meet cost and schedule targets.
Easy to get along with.
Experience with Design for Manufacturability and Design for Assembly.
Knowledge of Engineering fundamentals (statics, dynamics, thermodynamics, heat transfer).
Consumer electronics experience is desirable but not mandatory.
To be completely successful in this role with us, you will need to be personable, technically brilliant, an outside of the box thinker, driven to succeed no matter what and says what CAN be done and not what can't be done.
