Job Description

Mechanical Engineer
Contract 3+ years, 40 hours weekly

Opto Mechanical experience would be HIGHLY preferred and would stand out a candidate from others.

This opening requires an Active Top Secret clearance from the candidate's first day.

This position is required onsite at least 4 days a week so the candidate must either be local to MA or able to relocate at the start of the position.

Researches, plans, designs, verifies, validates and develops mechanical and/or electromechanical products and systems, such as metals, instruments, controls, plastics, robots, engines, machines and mechanical, resonance, hydraulic or heat transfer systems for production, transmission, measurement, and use of energy. Recommends various technology options or approaches for system, processes, facility or program improvements in terms of safety, performance, efficiency or costs. May be responsible for the transfer from R&D to manufacturing.

The Mechanical Engineering Group provides innovative design solutions for advanced technology prototypes. Example projects include laser communication, high energy lasers, optical sensors, biological agent detectors, and large radar antennas, for systems deployed on ground, maritime, air- and space-borne platforms. The Group has expertise in precision engineering, opto-mechanics, mechanisms, electronics packaging, large structures, highly efficient lightweight structures, composite materials and additive manufacturing. We are the Engineering Division’s center for 3D CAD design and data management, and are involved in every step of a program’s execution from conceptual design to system integration and test.

The selected candidate will be assigned to a multidisciplinary engineering team, under the direction of a Technical Project Manager.
-Responsibilities will include design, analyses, integration, and testing of complex hardware from conceptual design through fabrication and test.
-Candidates must have a broad range of knowledge in mechanical design of structures, optical systems and electronic packaging for DoD applications.
-Candidates must be enthusiastic, innovative, and motivated self-starters able to work independently, or with a group, to achieve program requirements.
-They must possess strong oral and written communications skills, and must be able to present findings/results to internal and external organizations.
-Candidates must have Solidworks CAD experience.

-Experience in performing mechanical design and analysis of complex mechanical systems for DoD and aerospace applications is preferred. Opto-mechanical and or precision design experience for systems that must function in harsh environments, is highly desired.

Bachelors degree is mandatory. Candidates should have a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering OR Aerospace. A Masters degree is a plus (there is some flexibility on the years of experience if the candidate has a Masters). Master and 3+ years experience or Bachelor and 5+ years experience.
