Let’s start with why we exist…

We believe the most important technologies in the world don’t seek your attention, they work for you, they empower you, and they get out of the way, so you can focus your attention on what matters most.

We believe that everything around you should be simpler, faster, and more seamless. We believe in a world where you can control everything around you, by simply being present and having technology do the work for you by turning the mundane into the magical. We believe you should be able to experience the world in personalized ways rich with your preferences and taste, while staying in control of your data and privacy. 

We are creating this world by building your digital Proxy. It’s your identities, your preferences, your ID cards, your wallet, your links to the physical world, augmented and represented by a signal emitted from your smartphone or wearable that tells the world around you who you are, what you want, and how you want it.

We exist to empower you with your digital identity for the physical world. Access more. Share less.

Why this role exists...

  • We are looking to add a core member to our multi-functional engineering/manufacturing team to accelerate the development of Proxy's next generation wearable hardware products.
  • You will own the design of the Proxy ring as well as ancillary accessories such as chargers and ring sizers.
  • Additionally you will consider all manufacturing/automation implications of design choices and support the manufacturing team in executing on the development of a manufacturing line to produce the ring. 
  • Not having this person in place will result in missing our deadlines for having the ring roll out with our SW offerings. 

And so…

  • You will focus on the manufacturing implementation including fixture design, manufacturing cells, automation components, robotics interfaces and required support equipment specifications.
  • Assist automation engineering with fixture integration to node red backend manufacturing system.
  • Support vendors with any needs related to manufacturing processes including the assembly process as well as coordination on fixture design & implementation.
  • You will spend ~70% of your time in the U.S. and ~30% of your time in Taiwan.

Requirements.

  • BS or MS degree in Mechanical Engineering
  • Experience and demonstrated comprehension of mechanical design
