About $88,000 - $120,000 a year

Seagate is seeking a Mechanical Research and Development Engineer to support advanced mechanical development in the Mechanical Research and Development organization. This position will be Seagate’s research and development facility, located in Bloomington, MN.

About the role:
Typical responsibilities include:
Conceive and develop solutions to problems in recording head suspension and micro-actuators through innovation and the application of professionally accepted engineering techniques, practices and procedures.

Work on a variety of engineering projects related to development of head gimbal assemblies and microactuator designs for future product requirements. Most projects are in the discipline of mechanical structural dynamics, however there are large overlap and interaction with other disciplines, such as control systems, tribology, statics et. al.

Ownership of design projects from conception, design, modeling and design optimization through experimental validation.

Ownership of technology development and mature technologies from concept phase through feasibility and development.

Opportunity to work with suppliers to develop and mature design/material/process changes to meet performance requirements

Deliver the tools, metrology, transfer functions and understanding to the Seagate internal customers (drive, factory, product integration teams) for integration.

Work cross-culturally and interface with teams at the drive design centers, factories and suppliers located all over the world.

About you:
Master's or PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering or a related field with 3 years of related experience with 0-2 years experience.

Specialization in dynamics systems and statics, with strong design acumen.

Knowledge of Finite Element Modeling methods and Dynamics of mechanical systems.

Experience and demonstrated design exercise to solve technical engineering problem.

Strong written and oral communication skills for coordination with the extended team and communicating issues and status to management.

Your experience may include:
Experience in 2D and 3D CAD software such as Autocad and Solidworks.

Experience in finite element modeling of mechanical dynamic systems with commercial software tools such as Ansys (Classic, Workbench & Spaceclaim) and Hyperworks.

Knowledge of Finite Element Modeling methods and Dynamics of mechanical systems.

Experience with design for six sigma principles & techniques

Familiarity with actuators and sensor design, MEMS technologies and other emerging technologies are an added advantage.

Experience in the set-up and use of laboratory equipment, instrumentation, software (oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, function generators,lock-in amplifiers, Labview etc).
