Job Posting – Mechanical Designer/Engineer
MAZDIS is a Canadian company based in Vancouver, British Columbia with its core specialty and focuses on Secure Automated Bicycle Parking (SABPS). At MAZDIS we combine a variety of sciences and technologies, such as robotics, automation, computing science, AI, and progressive manufacturing and design methods to provide unique, reliable, and efficient integrated bicycle parking solutions. MAZDIS bicycle parking solutions significantly improve the bicycle parking experience and the security of the bicycle and reduces the storage footprint and along with its intelligent software complete the transportation network by integrating personal cycling into other modes of transportation which significantly improves the First and Last Mile problems.
MAZDIS Tech Team is bringing mechanical design and fabrication to create a next-generation of MAZDIS Secure Automated Bicycle Parking Systems (SABPS1 Model 1). As a member of our team, you will influence the direction of our products. You must have a genuine passion for engineering products that will fundamentally change the cycling as a mode of transportation. The team is small, committed, and fast-moving. and you must expect to work in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment.
Solving complex design problems and designing mechanical parts from the ground up.
Create 3D models using sheet metal and part modelling functionality in 3D CAD software, Solidworks.
Create complex drawings and bills of material for sheet metal, bus bar, and assemblies.
Developing parts by analyzing work orders, prints, and completed assemblies; calculating project requirements determine appropriate methods for fabrication, develop flat pattern layout plan, bring to CAD/CAM design
Write, submit, release Engineering changes to new and released product documentation in CAD and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) database using our revision control system.
Collecting materials by studying specifications and component requirements; creating BOM for order processing, process materials utilizing efficiency in material yield
Applying DFP principals:
Minimized part count: Lowering part counts reduces costs, encourages an easy assembly process, and increases the strength of the final design.
Simple manufacturing: All designs should be easily completed with requesting bends, cuts, and perforations that can be easily performed with standard fabrication tools.
Easy assembly: Simplify the process and reduce assembly time by designing parts that have obvious orientations and fit together smoothly.
In addition to universal DFM principles, follow specific guidelines for sheet metal DFM, such as Hole sizes, Hole location, Punch-to-die clearance, Collars and coining, Bend relief, Beads and chamfers, Grain structure: Bends at edges, Corners and points, etc.
Work with cross-functional groups with the same goals for the project.
Create order lists for prototype units and ensure material is received with Project Managers.
Contact with outside vendors and suppliers as needed.
BS or higher in Mechanical Engineering or related discipline.
Experience with Mechanical Parts and Sheet Metal Design and Optimization with FEA.
Simulation experience is required.
Familiarity with design for manufacturing (DFM) engineering philosophy.
Knowledge of high volume manufacturing processes.
Proficiency in FEM, Solidworks (Fusion 360 and CATIA v5 experience highly valued).
Experience with transitioning products and processes from prototype to production desired.
Experience creating technical specifications for automated manufacturing equipment is highly desired.
Detail-oriented with solid documentation and reporting skills.
Remain engaged, proactive and positive while solving very challenging problems.
Own assignments and take full accountability for overall team success.
Excellent problem solving, critical thinking, and communication skills.
Impact and desired outcomes
People around the world began using bicycles more often for their commute over the past two decades. It is growing so fast that cycling has become one of the main modes of transportation in most countries. Having the experience of living in the Netherlands, the leading nation for commute cycling, during the early 2000s, the founder of MAZDIS has foreseen the problems that cyclists, local governments and property owners are going to face in the future. This was the foundation to start MAZDIS by addressing the main problem of commute cycling which is secure and space-efficient bicycle parking solutions.
We have this challenge along our path to market, like any company with disruptive new technologies, to make it easier for our clients to adopt our product.
