Full Time
At Matician, our goal is to save people time and energy by automating mundane tasks inside the home. We believe that sensors and algorithms are finally good enough that we can apply Level 5 Autonomy and mobility in order to reimagine home devices.  We are building great products to solve real problems and ship them to the people we love. Our mission-driven and tight-knit group values learning and curiosity in a high-risk, high-reward culture.

We're looking for an experienced Mechanical Design Engineer to join us (pre-launch!) on the ground floor, with runway for huge and immediate impact.

What you'll do

    • Own end-to-end design of parts & assemblies
    • Fabricate prototypes, iterate rapidly, advance your concepts through to volume production
    • Develop specifications and accelerated test plans to validate the product for its determined lifetime
    • Collaborate with a multi-disciplinary team of subject matter experts to create a cohesive and balanced product
    • Establish relationships with vendors, suppliers, and CMs in a startup environment

What we look for

    • Technical degree in mechanical engineering or equivalent
    • Proven track record of creative, complex mechanical design and successful physical build
    • Experience in reliability and analysis testing
    • Strong CAD skills (master/skeleton modeling, managing assemblies, PDM)
    • Comfort with fast-paced, unstructured startup atmosphere
    • Risk taking, a propensity for learning, and no fear of failure

We'd love to hear from you if...

    • You are genuinely motivated to help those around you
    • You are passionate about learning outside of your normal comfort zones
    • You love diagnosing complex technical issues
    • You are excited to do great work
If you got to this point, we hope you're feeling excited about this opportunity at Matician! Even if you don't feel that you meet every single requirement, we still encourage you to apply. We're eager to meet people who are keen to learn and are passionate about what Matician is building. We want to hear how you can contribute to our team in a variety of ways – not just the above boxes.
