Motor Design Engineer - JUMP Hardware at Uber
San Francisco, CA, US

About the Role

At JUMP, design engineers lead the technical invention of new product concepts, using their engineering skills to create elegant solutions to problems and refine them into highly manufacturable designs. Our scope is wide and exciting - we engineer our own vehicles, drivetrains, batteries, locks, telecommunications equipment, and charging infrastructure. Across all of this scope, JUMP hardware products must be incredibly intuitive to users, durable for our fleet operators, and easy to manufacture at low cost. Achieving this in a product with our level of advanced technology requires mechanical designs that are brilliantly simple in their initial concept and rigorous in their execution. Equally important is that they are conceived in a way that optimizes for development speed - designs that are quick to test, build upon our existing technology foundation, and leverage a deep understanding of the capabilities of our world-class manufacturing partners.

What You'll Do

As a Motor Design Engineer, you are responsible for defining the mechanical architecture of new electric powertrain concepts and being the primary builder through all phases of hardware development. You will work closely with adjoining teams (ID, electrical, firmware, testing, manufacturing, supply chain) as well as less senior members of the mechanical engineering team to to design, prototype, test, and ship.

What You'll Need

  • 5+ years in the design engineering field - strong preference for transportation, consumer electronics, batteries, and industrial products.
  • 3+ years experience doing design work on mass-production products.
  • 3+ years designing motors or geartrains.
  • Strong Solidworks skills.
  • Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering, or similar.
  • Experience taking a design from concept through deployment including fundamental analysis.
  • To be a highly prolific and creative individual (in both personal and professional contexts) with a proven record of innovative design solutions.
  • Very good communication skills and working cross functionally.
  • Experience working with vendors and suppliers.
  • Electric motor design experience.
