Product Design Engineer – Advanced Development – Shark

Have you ever built a product prototype by hacking together parts from existing products – just because you were curious? When you come across something that just isn’t quite right, do ideas invade your thoughts, do you try and solve the problem, do you turn those ideas into prototypes, do you test yourself and your assumptions about what is right, including your shiny new ideas?  Do you dream up ways you can improve the things you use every day around the house?

  • Willingness to fail fast and fail often to succeed sooner when exploring early product concepts
  • Open to pursuing multiple paths to get to the best solution, and not being too proud of your own ideas to listen to others or try out alternate ideas
  • Proficiency of CAD proficiency in ProE/Creo or SolidWorks
