Mechanical Engineer IV

  • 2020-17730
  • Pleasanton, California, United States

Bio-Rad is looking for an enthusiastic Mechanical Engineer IV to support its global organization. You will be part of the innovative Mechanical Engineering Team developing complex solutions for the Next Generation ddPCR instrument systems.

We need a solid mechanical engineer who gets excited about pushing the boundaries of medical diagnostics, is highly analytical, and sees the big picture needed to evolve a concept into an instrument. Are you a hybrid mechanical/systems engineer that understands the full life-cycle from concept to manufacturing and is passionate about transforming ideas into products? Does the idea of engineering a break-through instrument platform that provides the cancer and research community with revolutionary opportunities excite you?

You’ll report directly to the Head of Mechanical Engineering and be part of a larger multi-disciplinary R&D team.  Come join us and be a key player in our next innovative instrument. You will work with engineers, chemists, and molecular biologists to develop integrated chemical and fluidic systems (including droplet-based digital PCR). This work will span from the research stage through product launch. At our Pleasanton R&D center, you can have big company impact while working at a small, nimble and dynamic site.

How will you make an impact?

You will be supporting the mechanical design, development and documentation of digital biology products developed in an R&D environment. Interfacing with cross functional teams, you will be developing instrument systems from concept through detailed design, manufacturing release, instrument verification, and product launch.

Responsibilities

  • Collaborate within a multidisciplinary team to develop mechanical solutions which enable next generation medical instruments.
  • Review and analyze product requirements, articulate and document mechanical system requirements and functions. Participate in efforts relating to mechanical requirements definition, and functional decomposition, mechanical system architecture definition, modeling, and compliance including verification plans and reports.
  • Develop mechanical solutions by designing components, creating assemblies, procuring parts, and authoring assembly instructions. Perform thermal/structural/CFD modeling and analysis of components and systems.
  • Exercise independent judgment in developing methods, techniques and evaluation criteria.
  • Assemble and test engineering prototypes alongside a diverse R&D team to validate research and correlate mechanical models.
  • Perform root-cause investigations on systems and components to correct problems, improve product quality and reliability.
  • Generate and release formal engineering documentation (part and assembly drawings, installation instructions, test reports, etc.) to support the development and manufacture of world class medical instruments.
  • Collaborate with downstream partners to incorporate the considerations associated with Design for Reliability (DFR), Design for Manufacturing (DFM), Design to Cost (DTC), and Design for Service (DFS).
  • Ensure high work quality, timely deliverables, and provide feedback to managers on process improvements.

Qualifications

  • BS in Mechanical Engineering, MS desirable.
  • Minimum of 8+ years of professional experience required.
  • Detail oriented personality with a passion for mechanical design, able to articulate ideas through solid documentation and reporting skills.
  • Strong verbal and written communication abilities.
  • Demonstrated application of mechanical principles and theories to develop cost-effective, reliable and high quality systems – machine shop and/or electro-mechanical assembly experience a must.
  • Proficiency with solid modeling packages (ie. Solidworks, Pro/ENGINEER, etc.) and business productivity tools (PLM, PDM, ERP).
  • Demonstrated ability with structural hand calculations and FEA software (ie. Solidworks Simulation, ANSYS/COMSOL, etc.)
  • Minimum five years industry experience in drafting and demonstrated GD&T understanding.
  • Training in Design for Excellence principals preferred.
