As a DAC team member, you would help ensure new product designs meet or exceed requirements, engineering "best practices" are followed, customer and regulatory agency requirements are understood and met, and defects are identified and eliminated prior to transition to production.

In this role, the ideal candidate will be capable of advising project teams and leadership of design quality trends and systemic issues, working with organizations to investigate issues, understanding and leading efforts to determine root cause of design issues, and providing recommended corrective actions as needed to achieve design and development objectives for high quality designs.

  • Throughout development lifecycle mentor engineering teams regarding process, Quality, and regulatory requirements in order to ensure problem-free product and artifact deliveries. Ensure robust design through assisting engineering in the use of appropriate tools and practices.
  • Proactively assess development projects on an ongoing basis to determine "health" of the project via process and work product assessment/audit using the appropriate tool sets.
  • Ensure engineering efforts performed effectively and aligned with Client & customer's quality expectations
  • Lead the effort to ensure quality issues seen in legacy products (both in factory and field) are eliminated in new designs. Facilitate cross-functional teams (PQA, AE, SCQA, Engineering, Manufacturing) to accomplish this.
  • Employ Quality-related tools such as Root Cause Analysis, Variation Reduction, Key Characteristics, etc. as appropriate. Analyze project data for trends and systemic issues - recommend corrective action.
  • Assist transition to production ensuring D&D related quality issues are resolved
  • Ensure effective and appropriate project process tailoring and approvals

This individual must be able to communicate with employees at all levels in the organization, demonstrating excellent problem solving, critical thinking and decision making skills. Additional requirements include an understanding of systems and hardware development and the associated processes. Solid understanding and experience in the engineering development lifecycle with emphasis on design quality aspects is critical for success.

  • A strong customer focus
  • A proven track record of meeting commitments
  • A strong working knowledge of design process
  • An understanding of lean value and savings
  • An ability to communicate masterfully both verbally and in writing
