The Senior Mechanical Designer plays a key role in conceptualizing, developing and documenting designs for our next-generation radiation therapy medical device. Major responsibilities include the mechanical design and documentation, as well as interfacing with suppliers and manufacturers. The design tasks may include mechanisms, welded structures, component packaging, and enclosure designs for electronics. In addition, the designer may participate in prototype assembly and testing. The designer must be able to work within medical device quality systems and stringent design control. The successful candidate must excel in a high-energy team environment, be a strong communicator, operate with high level of autonomy and be capable of making sound decisions when faced with the time pressures, and often incomplete information typical of research and development.
Develops high quality and reliable designs of complex gantry-based medical device subsystems adhering to engineering, manufacturing, and serviceability requirements.
Works within a project team and delivers high quality work within project milestones.
Partners with the New Product Introduction (NPI) and Service teams to ensure alignment between production process instructions and mechanical designs.
Completes detailed and accurate engineering change orders within a Product Lifecycle Management system, engaging cross-functional approval groups to ensure successful effectiveness of the change.
Interfaces with suppliers and manufacturers to address manufacturing issues with mechanical designs.
