(Mechanisms, Structures & Electrical-Mechanical Systems Design & Controls)

As a Principal Mechanical Engineer at Wavemaker Labs, your breadth of experience and capability in electrical-mechanical systems design and controls will allow you to shine. You will work with our talented team to accelerate product development.

You Will:
  • Research and key component selection including sensors, actuators, controllers and any other relevant components
  • Implement workable structures and kinematics design architectures
  • Prepare weight budgets and margin of safety analysis based on carefully defined use cases
  • Mechanical packaging of components with an eye for efficiency and design elegance
  • CAD design of mechanical systems guided by load and duty-cycle analysis, kinematics studies and manufacturability
  • Prepare detailed drawings of parts and assemblies using GD&T ready for manufacturing
  • Compile data, prepare trade studies and present information in written and verbal form
  • Develop mechanical system budgets including estimating labor, material, and any other relevant costs
  • Lead technical teams in the following:
    • Ideation of electrical-mechanical systems architecture, mechanism and structural mechanical systems
    • Development of test plans and executing hardware integration, testing, debug and validation
    • Development of mechanical systems that meet use-case, technical, operational, manufacturing, cost and schedule requirements

  • Degree in Mechanical Engineering and/or other relevant educational background
  • 8-10 years of experience successfully developing real robotic/automation systems
  • Experience writing high-level controls and state-machine firmware
  • Experience developing robotics/automation products for scale manufacturing as demonstrated by specific examples of products brought to market
  • Experience with electronics and electrical system architecture as demonstrated by the ability to guide diverse teams during the bring-up and debug of electrical-mechanical systems
    Excellent written, verbal and presentation communication skills to levels above, below and in-line
  • In-depth robot/automation hardware design experience with both system-level thinking and component-level development
  • Experience (physically) building and maintaining complex mechanical systems
  • Keen ability to identify and foresee technical risk, and engineering mindset of addressing risks early
