Job Description
Senior Mechanical Engineer (Electro-Mechanical Packaging)
San Diego, CA
Our client is a multi-billion-dollar electronics/industrial manufacturer who has a global presence and strong continual growth. This group is very stable, low turnover, and lots of room for promotion within the company. We are looking for a hands-on mechanical engineer who has experience with electro-mechanical packaging design for electronics (assemblies, rack mounted electronics, enclosures, power supplies, etc). We are looking for strong sheet metal and plastics design, and the ability to generate drawings for bills of material and manufacturing documentation. This is a fast-paced environment. In this role you will perform a wide range of complex non-routine technical mechanical design tasks and mechanical modeling. This role involves the use of initiative and
Additional Responsibilities:
  • Responsible for electro-mechanical design, from concept through production release, of power electronics equipment
  • Makes engineering computations, writes specifications and makes adjustments in drawings of specifications.
  • Competent in thermal design of cooling systems comprised of power devices and magnetics, heat sinks, and airflow using fans; liquid cooling experience is a plus
  • Proficiency in fabrication processes used in producing sheet metal chassis and structural parts, injection molding of plastics, and machining.
  • Creative thinker capable of designing mechanical packaging and layout of electronic assemblies considering equipment cooling and airflow requirements
  • Capable of designing product packaging with consideration for low manufacturing cost, low material costs, serviceability and reliability
  • Experienced with Finite Element Modeling (FEA) mechanical stress modeling and thermal analysis/modeling tools
  • Proficiency in fabrication processes used in producing sheet metal chassis and structural parts, injection molding of plastics, and machining.
Desired Qualifications:
  • Minimum Bachelors degree, Masters in Engineering strongly desired.
  • 3-15+ years experience in electro-mechanical packaging design for electronic assemblies
  • Working experience with product engineering in a production environment - on-the-floor manufacturing interactions is a plus
  • Must have some knowledge in thermal design/cooling systems for power devices
  • Proficiency in Solidworks or similar 3D CAD design using SolidWorks, with working knowledge of 2D design using AutoCAD, and knowledgeable of design tolerance analysis and mechanical packaging of electronic equipment, sheet metal design, and drawing and documentation background.
  • Knowledgeable in applying concepts of (DFM) Design for Manufacturability and (DFA) Design Failure Analysis in design of electro-mechanical assemblies.
  • Knowledgeable in analysis and simulation of environmental conditions, such as temperature, humidity, shock and vibration. Competency in mechanical stress analysis and thermal analysis with (FEM) Finite Element Modeling software is desirable.
  • Familiar with Gerber files, etc.
  • Proficiency in MS PowerPoint, Excel, Word, and simple database applications
  • Knowledgeable of design tolerance analysis.
  • Competent in characteristics in materials and plating, and design practices to prevent corrosion.
