  • Conduct deep dive design reviews with suppliers on a regular basis to guide the design of new parts and apply existing systems to new environments
  • Continuously improve in-series production parts with design changes to afford cost savings and quality improvements
  • Develop engineering specifications for validation of subsystems and components to support vehicle level performance requirements
  • Work with interfacing organizations to define and develop systems engineering approaches that deliver body system and attribute requirements while ensuring efficient designs to achieve customer wants
  • Plan for parts timing alignment with overall program timing plan
  • Occasional global travel 1-2 trips per year to facilitate global engagement

Basic Qualifications:

  • Minimum of a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering – or similar - from an accredited university
  • Minimum of 3 years of experience in design, development, release and implementation in production of mechanism components and systems, with a strong background in: design and engineering for use on closures or other body systems, kinematics and CAE applications, specific mechanism components, fabrication processes, testing, compliance and regulations.
  • Catia (V5 or V6) expertise, including releasing into the PLM systems.
  • Experience interfacing with suppliers and development projects.
  • Proficiency in Engineering Disciplines (DFMEA, PFMEA, DVP&R, Tolerance Analysis, 8-D, Control Plans, Reliability/Robustness Matrices, etc.)
  • Proficiency with PC software (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, etc.)
  • Able and willing to travel domestically and/or internationally.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Highly motivated individual with excellent communication and organizational skills

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
