high performance robotic systems. You will work with the engineering 
team to design custom components, actuators, and sensing methods across 
many products and research areas. You should be able to demonstrate 
exceptional mechanical design skills, and provide a portfolio of 
machines you designed and built that show novel design skills in the 
area of actuation, sensing, and structural design. You will work closely 
with our team of roboticists to develop next-generation automated 
systems that are used to transform healthcare and logistics industries. 
Your work will be used in real-world applications by Vecna's customers 
across the globe. We seek an applicant with mastery of both 
electro-mechanical systems and hydraulic systems. This is a full-time, 
salaried role. Job ID: 185.

Responsibilities:

Work as a member of Vecna's engineering team to design and develop 
concepts, R&D level prototypes, and refine products across all of 
Vecna's technology space.
Build design knowledge about complex systems using rigorous engineering 
testing and qualitative analysis procedures.
Take responsibility for entire systems and ensure parts work as 
designed.
Break down complex challenges into solvable pieces in a prioritized and 
time-effective manner.
Provide design feedback and critical analysis of design decisions for 
the team.
Discuss complex problems on a systems level, and frequently integrate 
engineering efforts with electrical and software engineers.
Mentor junior-level mechanical engineers in best-practices and 
professional growth.
Requirements:

BS or MS in Mechanical Engineering or relevant engineering degree.
3 years minimum of practical work experience in a field related to 
product design, machine design, automation, or robotics.
Hands-on design experience with articulated electro-mechanical systems.
Proficient in SolidWorks (or equivalent) modeling and FEA simulation.
Mastery of tolerance stack analysis, engineering drawing creation, and 
GD&T.
Demonstrated ability to take a complex product from concept through 
production.
Excellent visual and verbal communication skills.
Willingness to work in a dynamic, team-based environment.
Strong problem-solving skills, creativity, a positive attitude and 
enthusiasm for new ideas.
Experience designing for mass production, which may include experience 
in any of the following: machining, welding, casting, molding, or 3D 
printing.
Experience with analytical and empirical analysis of heat transfer a 
plus.
Working knowledge of relevant safety standards for autonomous vehicles 
and robotic manipulation systems a plus.
