Creative mechanical engineers wanted for instrumentation product development

Creative mechanical engineers with product development skills are sought to innovate instrumentation for the drug delivery market. This position offers mechanical engineers the opportunity to further advance their already established skills in fluid mechanics and product development by designing, prototyping, testing and transferring new laboratory instrumentation technology through to production.

As the Product Development Engineer, it will be your responsibility to gather the requirements from customers and for creating the initial protypes, ensuring the best and most assured path to successful manufacture is taken. With the ability to get the most out of working in multi-discipline teams of high calibre engineers, you will be able to assess data and feedback from the teams and clients to produce the next advancement in the design. Working closely with clients, you will follow the product through to the early stages of manufacturing, enabling product and production support.

This is a role that will involve creativity and engineering know-how, as well as excellent communication skills and will be rewarded with increasing responsibility and leadership opportunities, as well as a competitive salary and excellent benefits package.

You will need the following skills and attributes for this role:

  • An in-depth knowledge of materials, mathematics, mechanics, structures, and fluid mechanics, backed-up by a good degree (2:1 or above) in Mechanical Engineering or similar subject from a well-respected university.

  • Practical mechanical engineering skills, including basic workshop proficiency and good technical problem-solving skills

Desirable skills:

  • The ability to quickly create prototypes of ideas and concepts
  • Project management skills
