About Rockmass RockMass is a venture backed start-up that provides digital and streamlined solutions for the mine of the future. We are looking for a Mechanical Engineering Lead join our team this November. We're a fast-moving tech company based in the heart of Toronto that’s partnered with SOSV, HAX, and Offroad Robotics. What we are building We’re developing an entirely new way of collecting data that we’re implementing into an industry ripe for change. Our product is a handheld data collection tool that enables engineers and geologists to quickly collect data and process that data into useful geological information. We use the same sensors that are used in autonomous cars (flash LiDAR + inertial measurement units) assembled in a rugged casing in combination with our proprietary software.
Job Description
   You will be responsible for leading the mechanical engineering aspects for RockMass. Major objectives include the designing and manufacturing of a handheld data collection tool capable of collecting IMU measurements, point cloud data and colour images in industrial environments. Experience in designing and implementing power circuits and PCBs is an added benefit. You will be working alongside our software engineering team to refine the current prototype to meet various design requirements. If desired, this position may provide the opportunity to travel up to 20% of the time and is negotiable. About you You enjoy facing difficult challenges head on and have experience in robotics and mechanical systems design. You’re organized, proactive, a team player at heart and strongly value communication and transparency. You are naturally curious and motivated by the hard work others put in around you. Having worked in an environment making rapid iterations to hardware products is an added benefit. Responsibilities    As the Mechanical Engineering Lead you will own all development made on the design and implementation of the mechanical and electrical components for RockMass’s product. Within one year of working at RockMass you can expect to have accomplished:
  • A finalized mechanical design of a ruggedized enclosure for all electronic devices. You will work alongside an industrial designer during this project.
  • Test reports outlining system and individual instrumentation performance in underground mining environments
  • Developed a strategy for manufacturing and product assembly
  • New instrumentation research such as the inertial measurement units and solid-state LiDAR sensor for future product iterations
  • Work alongside electrical engineers to integrate and test PCBs
  • Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering or Mechatronics Engineering  
  • 2+ years of experience working on hardware technologies or an M.Eng or M.A.Sc in Mechanical or Mechatronics Engineering
   Skills and Experience 
  • Highly skilled in mechanical design using Autodesk Fusion 360 , Inventor or Solidworks  
  • Excellent communication skills and project management experience
  • Project portfolio demonstrating an ability to design and construct electro-mechanical systems 
  • Experience 3D printing, laser cutting, and CNC machining
Nice to have 
  • Experience designing power systems for embedded electrical systems  
  • Knowledge of PCB design software such as Altium, KiCAD, EAGLE 
  • Familiarity with instruments such as: inertial measurement unit, embedded computer, capacitive touch screen, LiDAR, and smart batteries
  • Understanding of Linux OS
  • Full-time position with benefits
  • Flexible working environment
  • Access to hardware facilities within office and additional access to larger equipment and facilities
  • Ability to travel, if desired
