Found in: Neuvoo CA

Ballard’s Product Engineering Department has an opening for an Intermediate Mechanical Engineer to join the Mechanical Engineering team developing the next generation of Ballard’s fuel cell-based power systems. The successful candidate will work within a structured environment to apply their strong technical skills to the selection, design and layout of mechanical components and sub-systems towards the development of new innovative fuel cell power products.
  • Actively support the design of mechanical systems, including: sourcing and verification of mechanical components, material selection, structural design, process systems, fluid management, and mechanical layout of components.
  • Ensure conformance with Ballard’s product development and engineering maturity processes.
  • Generate engineering documentation for mechanical systems and components, including: component design requirements and specifications; design review and release materials; detailed test plans and conformity assessments.
  • Prepare and report out to internal and external stakeholders on progress identifying conformance to requirements, gaps and risks.
  • Participate and contribute to informal and formal design reviews
  • Develop cost effective designs that meet functionality, durability and robustness requirements.
  • Lead failure analysis investigations on mechanical systems and components.
  • Identify and interact with 3rd party suppliers of mechanical systems and components.
