Job Description

Mechatronics / Robotics Design Engineer

About the Job

Our Client pushes the boundaries of nano-technology beyond current state of the art, they have developed a need to develop high precision equipment while maintaining a focus on cost effectiveness and reliability. We are looking for someone to help pioneer knowledge in this developing area.

Compensation, Benefits, and Culture – What’s in it for you?

  • Excellent Pay
  • Opportunity for hands-on mechanical design work as well as guiding and mentoring a large team
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance, Dental insurance, 401k, accrued Paid Time Off, etc
  • Enthusiastic, bright, and talented individuals collaborating on ideas

Duties include:

  • Mechatronics engineering background or specialization in closely related areas such as robotics or other fields.
  • Developing hardware with a cross sector team all related aspects such as dynamics,  controls, translating stages, linear motors, sensors, etc.
  • Responsible for “sustaining engineering” tasks, resolving equipment design issues in a timely fashion as they arise at customer sites.
  • Participation of concept design studies for next generation equipment and subsystems.
  • Strong skills in proof of concept development and design of experiments for a wide range of project needs.
  • Ability to run complex mechatronic systems for test and qualification of design changes.
  • Demonstrated ability to derive conclusions from analysis and to make practical recommendations.




Required Qualifications:

BS / MS / PhD with 0 – 5 years of experience

  • Experience with understanding and troubleshooting legacy designs to determine potential risks, failure modes, and corrective actions.
  • Dynamics, PID, feedback, feedforward, linear control, non-linear control
  • Knowledge of “classical control theory” and “digital control theory” including frequency domain, stability (Nyquist / Bode plots), Velocity-Acceleration-Jerk (VAJ), feedback / feed forward, dynamics, gain and phase, transfer functions, continuous / discrete feedback control, real time controls, etc.



These skills are a plus:

  • Basic experience with mechatronics behavior predictive modeling and methods in MATLAB / SIMULINK or similar tools, including “first principle” engineering equations and other techniques, particularly with their applications to control system simulation and implementation.
  • Strong technical writing and communication skills, including the ability to present results based on strong statistical evidence to audiences of a wide range of technical abilities
  • Exposure to multi-disciplinary projects, such as imaging or optical systems preferred but not required.
