OPERATIONS – Hardware/Mechatronics
About You
You want to work for a fast-paced company that thinks big and dreams huge.  You are driven, view work as more than just a job, and are never satisfied with a project left half-done.  You have a strong sense of personal ownership and responsibility for completion of objectives on time. You will lead the design of all mechanical elements (mechanisms and structure) of warehouse automation robots – you need to love dynamics AND statics to excel in this position.  You have experience with bearings, pulleys, timing belts, interference fits, electric motors, encoders, gear boxes and gears.  You have a good feel for the design and manufacturing tools used to create robots and the capabilities of those tools.  You have years of experience leading mechatronic product development teams and a track record for bringing those products to market.  You want to push the envelope, bring new designs into being, and design the robot army that takes over the world, at least in the logistics realm.
