We’re looking for a hands-on, well-rounded mechanical engineer who can help us design Building components from the ground up. This is not a role for an application engineer who wants to use standard off-the-shelf parts, but rather an exciting opportunity for a person who will help us design a system that’s tailored for the ZURU housing project. As an out-of-the-box thinker with a can-do attitude, you will work alongside a team of product development engineers to design a new generation of buildings. Previous experience in building product design is a plus, but not required. This is not a task for one person, so you will have a chance to build a team around you.

    • Develop detailed designs and specifications for mechanical and building products, hardware, connections, and assemblies.
    • Coordinate with and consult other team members on design, layout, or detail components and systems and resolve design or other problems.

    • Work alongside our product development engineering team.
    • Work on establishing, developing, and implementing best-in-class products of the highest quality and longevity.
    • Push the envelope of what is technically possible and dream up new ideas for the best products.
    • Work with our prototyping and testing departments to validate designs and performance.
