Main Office - Burlington

Desktop Metal is revolutionizing all aspects of metal 3D printing. We are presently seeking a talented and self-motivated Sr. Mechanical Engineer to join our Studio System Engineering team.  The Studio System consists of three different hardware units, Printer, Debinder, and Sintering Furnace.   Together these three units utilize a robust build process that can create complex metal parts, at a price attainable by any design and manufacturing team. The ideal candidate will have experience architecting and developing novel electro-mechanical systems from concept to production.

Position Responsibilities:

  • Work closely with program management and regulatory teams to create the next generation of metal 3D printing systems
  • Create product requirements and qualify designs against specifications
  • Design system components, including detailed drawings for manufacturing using best practices and GD&T
  • Lead research and development of sub-systems and component selection
  • Maintain 3D CAD models and documentation of system architecture and components
  • Work with an interdisciplinary team to perform detailed design and analysis
  • Apply a strong analytical approach to the design process, including mechanics, thermals and tolerance analysis.
  • Lead FMEA and design reviews
  • Maintain a high level of communications with cross-functional teams and partners

Basic Qualifications:

  • Experience in bringing multiple products through the full design cycle; from brainstorming through product development and transitioning to production
  • Thorough understanding and use of technical principles, theories, and concepts in mechanical and systems engineering
  • Ability to identify, design and validate cost saving opportunities against original design intent
  • Broad exposure to mechanical design and development practices
  • Working knowledge of manufacturing techniques such as injection molding, sheet metal fabrication, welding, machining and 3D printing
  • Experience designing and documenting machined, sheet metal, and cast parts for prototype and mass production
  • Experience designing and operating high vacuum systems
  • Understanding of fluid systems and able to analyze and design process cooling systems
  • Experience working with various suppliers to integrate components into system design
  • Ability to resolve complex issues in creative, efficient, and effective ways
  • Ability to apply customer and company-wide perspective to detailed technical decisions
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • BS/MS Mechanical Engineering or equivalent

Preferred Experiences:

  • Solidworks
  • Designing for high temperature technologies and applications
  • Designing for medium to high vacuum applications
