You:

  • Want to build a precision tool that is beautiful inside and out
  • Enjoy the gritty details of part design, material selection, and manufacturing techniques
  • Craft elegant designs that function with efficiency and simplicity
  • Use 3D CAD (Solidworks/Onshape) to design components, produce drawings, and build assemblies
  • Are familiar with a variety of manufacturing techniques including injection molding and sheet metal fabrication
  • Can prototype your own designs in our well equipped shop
  • Have experience with the full product development cycle
  • Can communicate seamlessly with vendors and suppliers across the globe
  • Are hands-on and willing to cross discipline boundaries to solve a problem

Bonus Skills (Optional):

  • Industrial design

Our Perks:
