Senior Mechanical Engineer

Organisatie- en afdelingsomschrijving

Our client is responsible for the specification, design and engineering of high-tech / precision modules. The development department has several competency groups such as Mechanics, Mechatronics, Electronics, Software and Project Management. In multidisciplinary project teams where the responsibility is part of these teams, they specify, design, develop and qualify professional products for our customers. Because it are multidisciplinary projects, your responsibility is broad and large. Our client is a unique project-based development environment for high-tech mechatronic systems, where the combination of product development and production are centered.

As a Senior Mechanical Design Engineer you will work in a project-based environment. You're mainly engaged in the development of mechanical concepts for the high tech machinery, often in consultation with fellow mechanical engineers. You are also responsible for the mechanical detail design (incl. Package TPD) and you ensure that these are available according to the agreed schedule and meet the set of requirements.

As a Sr. Mechanical Engineer you specify and you perform together with a team of about 10 designers and architects, high-tech mechatronic system solutions for the new products and you are responsible for achieving optimal functionality and cost effectiveness of the systems.


Main responsibilities

- Feasibility phase: examine the Customer Requirement Specifications (CRS) and the feasibility of mechanical components;
- Definition phase: provide a description of the system design requirements and specifications;
- System design phase: generate the system design concepts and revision;
- You have well considered choices and you validate the system requirements;
- Definition of the high-tech modules and related technical interfaces;
- Monitoring if projects stay within the agreed specifications;
- Has helicopter view and is creative to find solutions in case of conflicts;
- Detailed phase: is part of a team of (lead-) designers / architects of about  10 to 15 persons;
- System verification: Verification of the requirements of the design / of the chosen concep;

- Production release: Release of the design for production.

Other tasks

- Contribute to the system roadmaps;
- Participate in the development of necessary critical mechanical skills;
