Position Summary

Primary purpose of the job is to execute assigned design work to support engineering project activity.

Responsibilities include the conceptual design and development of kinetic switches as well as some limited pneumatic fluid power control products (i.e. regulators, valves, etc.). Accurately interprets customer specifications to design and develop aerospace qualified hardware.

Designs specialized kinetic switches using computer aided design and drafting (CADD) tools to meet customer requests; and collaborates as necessary to generate details, assembly drawings, models, bills of materials (BOM), associated production and development procedures/reports.

Principal Activities
  • Works with Sales, Engineering project team members and Engineering management to ascertain compliance of kinetic switches to the technical specifications, request for quotations (RFQ) and statement of work (SOW).
  • Generates design modifications to existing switch designs, which will satisfy a new customer driven design requirement(s).
  • Creates a new designs which are based on proven products, but may require scaling and/or geometrical changes that will meet new design requirements.
  • Provides design solutions to manufacturing problems and sustaining business.
  • Coordinates and/or prepares the creation of production drawings and documentation.
  • Reviews, coordinates and/or drafts procedures for hardware development, acceptance and qualification testing.
  • Provides technical and supervisory guidance to the personnel assigned to support the project, including proposal and development work.
  • Directs building of prototypes and development hardware.
