In this role, you'll design, analyze, and document new or existing products from requirements provided.  In addition, design engineers create and sustain specifications using engineering analysis and judgment. 

Our design engineering jobs require leadership skills. You will oversee the development and testing of engineering prototypes.  And you will communicate and coordinate with vendors to obtain information and provide assistance. 

What is a Design Engineer?

A design engineer is an engineer focused on the engineering design process in any of our mechanical disciplines.  Design engineers tend to work on products and systems that involve adapting and using complex scientific and mathematical techniques.

Design engineers typically works with a team of other engineers and other types of designers, to develop conceptual and detailed designs. These designs ensure our products functions like they are supposed to.

In addition, design engineers work with our product marketing teams to develop the product concept and specifications to meet our customer needs and may direct the design effort.
