It has direct global operations in North America, Japan, Australia, and several European countries, and its products are distributed in over 40 countries. They offer competitive benefits to all levels of employees and provide free company shuttle service to the South and East Bay and nearby BART and Caltrain stations.
They are looking for a senior mechanical engineer to join their engineering team and support development of novel medical devices and applications. Projects involve a broad range of technologies including complex laser and optical delivery systems, high-power ultrasound, and radio-frequency devices. This diversity of technologies and their culture of organic innovation and vertical integration provides a unique opportunity for an individual with broad interests and skills.
This position is responsible for design and development of precision opto-mechanical assemblies for laser systems, structural frames, thermal management systems, and industrial designs. The engineer will work closely with the electrical and laser design teams and be responsible for product development from ideation through product launch. Previous experience with product development is required, preferably in the medical device or laser industry.
The individual will contribute in the development of existing and new medical technologies and applications.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Define and guide development of elegant mechanical designs that meet requirements for product performance, cost, reliability, and manufacturability.
Develop designs for all phases of product development from proof-of-concept through manufacturing.
Drive design verification by testing design performance in the lab and design validation by developing fast-turn clinical prototypes for use in the Cutera Research Clinic.
Contribute regularly to technical design reviews, project scheduling, and development of new product concepts and applications.
Use FEA simulation tools to model mechanical assemblies and guide design development.
B.S. in Mechanical engineering with 8+ years related mechanical design and apply them to precision mechanical designs.
Proven 8+ years of CAD design experience. SolidWorks is required.
New Product Design
