Electro Mechanical Engineer
Title: Electro Mechanical Engineer
Location: Portland, OR
Type: Direct Hire
Experience: 10 years
This role will be responsible for guiding a team of Mechanical, Electrical, RF, Networking and Software Engineers in the redesign of existing Ground Station Equipment to a sleek, small, modular devise that will be reliable in severe climates and environments.
- Focus on leading and tasking as an assistant to the Integrated Product Team Manager for the Ground Control Station (GCS) IPT
- Guide the development of the next generation of Ground Station Control Systems working with an established team of Mechanical, Electrical, RF, Networking and Software Engineers
- Create new electrical and component design solutions to reduce the size of the GCS system and packaging and increase the GCS resiliency to shock, thermal, dust, water, etc.
- Provide approval of workgroup technical approaches, products and processes
- Develop and maintain partnerships with customers, stakeholders and team members
- Establish and/or implement electrical –mechanical system architecture
- Identify new technologies and develop design requirements
- Allocate requirements across system architecture and designs and conducts trade studies
- Monitor subsystem design development activities for architectural consistency
- Perform and/or evaluates risk assessments and generate or approve risk mitigation plans and strategies
- Evaluate sub system design development
- De-conflict and resolve module-level requirement allocations
- Review electrical-mechanical system architectures and support development of detailed electrical-mechanical hardware and firmware designs
- Establish the electronic hardware interface designs and review and monitor design consistency
- Review and approve electronic hardware documentation packages
- Approve and monitor verification and validation procedures and/or system designs. - - - Evaluate testing/analysis of electrical-mechanical components, equipment, and systems results
- Establish technical performance metrics.
- Diagnose system-wide malfunctions, monitors trends in verification results and reviews/approves design improvements or modifications
- Assist the IPT Manager to oversee staff performing cross-functional work statement across a variety of engineering development and product support disciplines to deliver fully integrated UAV and Mission Systems
