Draper is seeking a senior product engineer with experience in electromechanical system design and manufacturing. The product engineer role at Draper is less about a specific “product” and more about providing a system-level perspective that will help mature advanced (often first-of-a-kind) prototype designs with an eye towards manufacturability, assemblability, and reliability (i.e. DFx). The role requires the candidate to manage interactions between program subject matter experts and both outside vendors and internal services, and work to develop plans for how to get from prototype to low-rate production. Experience with vendor management and an understanding of the DOD Manufacturing Readiness Level (MRL) process are important. Specific responsibilities include: - Supporting cross-functional design engineering teams and managing the integration of DFx activities into the prototype stage of the hardware product development cycle - Contribute to identifying risk and developing complex mitigation strategies, developing best practices, suggesting alternative solutions, and resolving issues in collaboration with the cross-functional teams - Help design the transition path from prototype design to the manufacturing stage - Managing external vendors and/or internal services as necessary to achieve program goals - Understand the product specifications, requirements, and production capability needed to meet those specifications in a low-rate production environment - Ability to effectively communicate DFx study findings and proposed design updates to both expert and non-expert team members and management - Strong organization, planning and time management skills to achieve program goals
