At quip, we design and deliver delightful products and services to keep all mouths healthy.  We are looking for a Mid-to-Senior Level Mechanical Design Engineer to help continue this mission.  The ideal candidate can confidently help build our product portfolio, enhancing existing products and developing new products. 

You will dive deep into materials, methods, and innovate entirely new production methodology to support innovative products that the team invents together. You will be operating on a team of designers and engineers to make real an aggressive product roadmap that serves well more than a million quip subscribers.  You will work with complex assemblies and contribute engineering rigor to the conception, prototyping, and design of our newest products. These products will involve advanced sensors and PCBAs, precision CNC, high-cavitation plastic injection, and world-class Tier 1 CMs. You will work out of our DUMBO Brooklyn office, occasionally troubleshooting problems in-person with foreign teams in China and other international locations.  You should be familiar with factory environments, international supplier relationships, and working past language barriers to communicate nuanced concepts.

quip’s Hardware Team prides itself on creative problem solving often bucks ordinary practice. When we envision a product with unparalleled user experience, it requires a rigor of method, depth of intelligence, and a penchant for delight not often found in everyday products. If you’re ridiculously passionate about good design and good engineering, we want to talk.

About quip

Most of us aren’t brushing our teeth correctly, either because we don’t know how to do it right, or because we just don’t feel like it. At quip, we design delightful products and experiences to help you care for your mouth better. Our initial product is a beautifully simple electric toothbrush and toothpaste that was featured by Time Magazine as one of the 25 Best Inventions of 2016. With refill brush heads and toothpaste arriving on a 3-monthly schedule, we are now growing our product line with that same standard of design. We pride ourselves on great design and our brand values of simplicity, honesty and accessibility are applied throughout our community.

quip is committed to promoting equality, inclusion, and diversity beyond your brushing routine. We believe our company is better equipped to care for every mouth when we listen to fresh perspectives from every voice, and in doing so, we build an equal-opportunity team of the brightest minds (and mouths)—regardless of race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, identity, or any other trait that makes you you. By celebrating and supporting our differences, we will thrive in our mission to improve oral health for all.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
