At Dishcraft, we believe that robotics are going to change jobs—and they should. We are a venture-backed Bay Area start-up that is revolutionizing robotics, computer vision, machine learning, and innovative mechanical design. Our first product will dramatically improve the way dishes in commercial kitchens are washed to provide a cleaner, safer, more environmentally-friendly experience while transforming the way kitchens are staffed

First and foremost, we value people, intellectual engagement, and transparent communication. We are looking for a highly motivated, intellectually curious and passionate Senior Mechanical Engineer to design a multi-stage robotic system for use in commercial kitchens. The Mechanical Engineer will be responsible for the mechanical system architecture and the detailed design of mechanical subsystems. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in mechanism design and has a passion for starting from concept ideation and taking the design all the way through to production.

About The Role

  • Perform mechanical design and development of a multi-stage robotic system
  • Brainstorm system designs, recommend design solutions, complete their detailed design, prototype, and test
  • Manage large CAD assemblies across multiple designers, consultants, and external vendors
  • Specify motion control components such as motors, encoders, linear actuators, hydraulics, pneumatics, and other sensors
  • Perform mechanical analysis such as plotting kinematic paths, calculating static and dynamic forces, and calculating tolerance stack-ups
  • Work with external vendors to get parts fabricated and assembled
  • Stay on top of technology advances in the field of robotics by attending seminars, joining external organizations, and going to trade shows.
  • This position requires close collaboration with other mechanical engineers, product managers, test engineers, software engineers, vendors, design consultants, and robots.

About You

  • BS or MS in mechanical engineering
  • 5+ years of experience in mechanical design
  • 3+ years experience with mechanism design having dynamic loads - linkages, bearings, gear trains, and conveyors.
  • 2+ years of design in the field of robotics, ideally with experience designing robot end effectors, robotic arms, or cartesian robots
  • Experience specifying motion control components such as motors, encoders, linear actuators, hydraulics, pneumatics, and other sensors
  • Strong CAD skills with the ability to parametrically manage large assemblies. Expert knowledge of rapid prototyping methods such as 3D printing, laser cutting, machining and low volume casting or molding
  • Demonstrated ability to work with outside vendors and shops
  • Experience with manufacturing hand-off, cleaning systems, regulatory compliance, and design of high-reliability systems are all a plus
  • Highly motivated, team player with a strong track record of technical leadership and technical collaboration
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Desire to be part of a fast-moving start-up and work in a fast-paced, collaborative, environment with few rigid boundaries
