Director of Mechanical Engineering - San Francisco

The Company:

We believe that the best ideas in the world aren’t actually in the world--they’re locked in people’s heads.

Quirky brings new consumer products to market every week. Some of the best industrial designers, mechanical engineers, and manufacturing experts come together to take ideas from concept to prototype - then to mass production - at a pace others said wasn’t possible.  

Today you’ll find Quirky’s products on the shelves of major retailers such as Target, Home Depot, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Best Buy.

 

The Candidate: 

Quirky is unlike any other product company.  We don’t spend a year debating product color or constantly changing scope.  A good idea gets prototyped, quickly vetted, and a solid plan is put in place to get it on shelves fast.   We achieve this by building a team of experienced, empowered product leaders.

You’ll lead our team of mechanical design engineers across NYC and San Francisco.    Our mechanical engineers look for innovative ways to manufacture some of the most creative consumer products.  Quirky engineers have access to some of the best prototyping tools, materials, and equipment for early concept validation.  The team then works with manufacturers in the US and overseas as we gear up for volume production.

In this role, you should bring a wide range of manufacturing process knowledge such as injection molding, metal stamping, machining, and electromechanical assemblies.   We make everything from pasta bowls to smart light bulbs, to connected air conditioners. 

As Quirky grows, you’ll implement new processes for resource assignments, design version management, and engineering tooling reviews – but like all Quirky managers, you’re willing to reconsider the “old rules” - and design processes that keep our organization nimble, creative, and efficient.

As part of this role, you’ll manage the product prototyping lab in our new San Francisco engineering center.  Your team will have access to some of the top CNC, injection molding, and 3D printing equipment.

The position is based in Quirky’s new San Francisco engineering center with occasional travel to the New York product design headquarters.

Qualifications:

  • 10+ years of experience
  • A history of shipping reliable high-volume consumer products that customers love
  • Experience managing geographically distributed teams
  • Disciplined project management skills – tracking  20+ portfolio projects at once.
  • Deep knowledge of manufacturing and prototyping processes – from injection molding, to CNC and 3D printing
  • Proficient in Pro/E
  • Experience with product safety and reliability standards
  • Unrelenting curiosity and pride in building awesome products.
  • Can interface with overseas manufacturing partners (ODMs or contract manufacturers) – with travel to these sites as necessary

QA Engineer - NYC - New York City

The Company:

We are Quirky.

We make invention accessible.
We believe that the best ideas in the world aren’t actually in the world--they’re locked in people’s heads.

Quirky brings new consumer products to market every week.  Some of the best industrial designers, mechanical engineers, and manufacturing experts come together to take ideas from concept to prototype - then to mass production - at a pace others said wasn’t possible.  

Today you’ll find Quirky’s products on the shelves of major retailers such as Target, Home Depot, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Best Buy.

 

The Candidate:

How do you test a light bulb - and how would it be different than testing an Internet-connected air conditioner? 

This isn’t one of those mind-teaser interview questions; it’s an example of the real challenges we’re faced with everyday at Quirky.

You’re willing to take on test plans for products as simple as a mixing bowl, to more complex products that have electronics and connected software. If the next Quirky idea is an internet connected gas grill, you’d better figure out what people, equipment, and processes we’d need to have in place to execute on the plan. Your team’s plan should also include regulatory compliance and tests so that nothing burns down.

You will play an early role in brainstorming discussions and product concept reviews to provide a perspective on what features should be considered for a quality experience. You have a constant curiosity to evaluate new technologies and competitive products.

 

The Qualifications:

  • Some experience in product testing, engineering, or support
  • Clear, efficient communication skills
  • Comfortable interacting within all levels of the organization
  • Comfortable context switching between plans to test a simple mixing bowl or power strip one day, to more complex products with wireless technologies, motors, or displays – all in the same week
  • Unrelenting curiosity and pride in building awesome products
  • You always keep the user and their experience in mind
  • Able to propose solutions, not just point out problems 
  • Confidence to escalate critical issues when deadlines are near  

Extra Points:

Experience in any of the following areas:

  • Software testing (black box user-experience)
  • Product UX and out-of-the-box experience testing
  • Product drop testing and reliability
  • Packaging testing
  • Experience taking products through certifications: UL, CE, FCC, IC, ETL
  • RF signal testing (WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee)
  • Basic Physics
