The Mechanical Engineer is responsible for planning and executing mechanical engineering tasks for the development and production of commercial laser systems.  This individual will be working closely with other members of our small interdisciplinary team developing innovative laser products and related technologies.  The candidate must be a fast learner, strong problem solver, and exceptional communicator.  This position will require you to translate ideas into high level design concepts and prototypes.  The candidate must have a proven ability to understand complex problems and requirements as described by customers, product managers, and scientific and engineering staff.   

Responsibilities Include:

  • Design parts and assemblies in SOLIDWORKS for state-of-the-art CO2 laser products and production equipment. 
  • Analyze and present modeling and test data.  Discuss results with technical staff, external partners, and customers. 
  • Lead project teams in the preparation of engineering inputs, cost estimates and schedules.
  • Prepare for, and participate in, comprehensive design reviews. 
  • Evaluate laser performance at the component and system levels via both SOLIDWORKS modeling and hands-on experimental methods. 
  • Develop and execute laser component reliability and qualification tests, especially accelerated aging, high stress conditions, and test to failure. 
  • Develop manufacturing and quality procedures for laser systems and support the manufacturing team in pilot builds and trouble-shooting during production. 
  • Write engineering change orders on existing products to improve designs and correct problems.
  • Meet deadlines, sustain superior personal task management, and deliver consistent high performance.


  • Bachelor’s degree (Master’s preferred) in Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or a closely related field. 
  • High proficiency in using SOLIDWORKS for mechanical design and documentation.
  • 5+ years of experience in mechanical engineering of industrial equipment.  Experience in opto-mechanical systems and lasers preferred. 
  • Experience in execution of engineering documentation, from design reviews and requirements documents to failure analysis and risk mitigation.
