Job Purpose

The Product Engineer is responsible for design and engineering analyses on thermal batteries. The analyses includes conceptual and detailed design, trade-off studies, CAD modeling, and calculations for molten salt thermal batteries. 

Essential Duties and Responsibilities

  • Performs detailed design, and development in areas such as mechanical, chemical, and electrical engineering design functions.  
  • Analyzes complex thermal battery electrical, thermal, mechanical and testing requirements.  Performs computer modeling in SolidWorks and engineering design / trade studies to identify viable technical approaches/limitations and define relevant cost vs. performance vs. requirements trades.  Compiles and analyzes test data to determine effect of design on products in relation to factors such as temperature, voltage, current, battery life or material properties.  
  • Fully characterizes baseline design(s) which serve as the starting point for post-award engineering detail design, development, qualification and production readiness.
  • Works closely with Manufacturing, Program Management, Quality and Production to develop technical plans which meet customer requirements, and which support the timely delivery of specification compliant qualified thermal batteries.  
  • Develops and implements Design Verification, Acceptance, and Qualification Test Plans needed to support the different phases of engineering design and development.  Specifies, designs, or oversees the design of:  mechanical systems, tooling, prototype hardware and final qualified design hardware that support all phases of the product development cycle. 
  • Transforms raw test and production data into useful technical information for analysis and to support Engineering Change Orders and Process Change Orders.  Effectively uses a variety of media (MS Excel, Word, and PowerPoint) to convey information to customers that is clear, concise and easy to interpret, both internally and externally
  • Serves as a technical focal point on major projects, hence, may have a high degree of external visibility.   Effectively uses broad skill sets to build customer confidence and create a satisfying experience that improves likelihood for follow-on business.
