  • Hands-on product design experience in consumer electronic products or modules
  • Direct fixture design experience, especially thermal fixture design, is highly preferred
  • 3D CAD experience required, NX preferred
  • Familiarity with printed circuit board and flex circuit technology is required
  • Basic understanding of EE concepts is required
  • Thermal system design experience highly desired: heat sinks, heat pipes, vapor chambers; familiarity with chillers and thermoelectric heads
  • Discipline in GD&T practices with close attention to datum establishment
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills and people skills; ability to interact with management, team members and external vendors
  • Teamwork: the candidate must be able to communicate well with cross-functional team members, be able to efficiently collaborate with team members to achieve project goals, and contribute positively to the engineering community.

Description
- You will own the end-to-end mechanical development of sockets and test fixtures for silicon validation
- You will drive the development process for sockets, fixtures, and thermal solutions through a complete silicon product cycle
- Work with socket suppliers to define socket requirements and developing technical specifications
- Work with thermal-solution suppliers to establish thermal solution requirements and develop technical specifications
- Work with internal PCB design teams to define footprints and other mechanical design drawings to assure interoperability
- Work with cross-functional teams to ensure successful system integration
- You will manage external partners and projects and ensuring interoperability of internal and external components
- You will work on detailed mechanical design of fixtures and thermal solutions
- Perform FEA simulations to validate assemblies
- Perform dimensional and tolerance analysis
- Run thermal simulations to prove thermal solution performance
- Qualify socket suppliers and fabricators
- Drive failure analyses and design of experiments (DOEs) to reach design solutions and corrective actions
