Your Role

As a mechanical designer at Vehicle Systems, you and the group will be responsible for our product development during customer projects and our own R&D. The development is done in close collaboration with the department’s electronics designers and the prototype workshop.

Our projects are relatively short, so you will be part of the whole process from idea to verification of the finished product. Our products are used in harsh environments, both mechanical and environmental, so the mechanical design must fulfill the requirements.

Tasks will include:

  • Mechanical design and modelling with Autodesk Inventor
  • Detail design, assembly- and layout drawings
  • Concept studies of new ideas (3D-printing and prototyping)
  • Hands-on verification of designs
  • Keep in close contact with suppliers

You need to be open minded, self driven and have a positive attitude towards changes and improvements. You are used to efficiently collaborating with team members as well as other stakeholders.

You are structured and have an analytical mindset enabling you to adapt to changed circumstances.

Required skills:

  • An academic degree within mechanical design (or equivalent experience)
  • Work experience from mechanical design
  • Excellent communication skills in Swedish and English, verbally and written

If you have experience with Autodesk Inventor, it is considered an advantage.
