Design Engineer

Husco provides individuals the opportunity to pursue a career within a fast-paced, industry leading and entrepreneurial organization.

Husco provides engineers the opportunity to pursue a career in engineering within a fast-paced, industry leading and entrepreneurial organization.  Design Engineers work closely with experienced engineers, customers and suppliers from the design stage to production for 1-2 programs.


Role Overview 

Collaborate in Product Design and Program Launch  

  • Work closely with Senior Engineers on 1-2 committed customer programs.
  • Initially follow program from prototype build through launch and eventually apply product knowledge to new product development/design.
  • A Design Engineer will potentially take part in product design, prototype build, supplier development, product build, production line development and launch, program launch and first pass yield reduction.
  • For mechanical engineers this may include making calculations to establish acceptable standards of performance, selection of materials, heat treatment, and assembly process.
  • Able to create 3D models of valve components, and valve assemblies in Creo.
  • Able to generate part drawings with correct dimensioning and tolerancing.
  • Responsible to review all prints and specifications for design content and adherence to Husco standards


Coordinate Build and Testing of Prototypes

  • Work closely with Lab Technicians or individually to develop necessary tests for products.
  • A strong Design Engineer is not only able to describe the necessary testing but also aid in debugging the determined procedures.


Troubleshoot and Debug Design Flaws

  • Take a hands-on problem-solving approach to product design complications by utilizing engineering principles/theories, tools, data and software to overcome product design issues and test failures.


Understanding of Hydraulic Principles and Husco Products

  • Has a basic understanding of the Husco product line.
  • Has a basic understanding of hydraulic circuits including Open Center, Closed Center, Load Sense, and Pressure Compensated hydraulic systems.



Interface with the Customer

  • Work with customers to understand application and special requirements.
  •  Assist Project Engineers or Program Managers with concepts and reviews with customer.
  • React to customer issues and provides ongoing design modifications and support from start of development process through support after production release.


Scale Steep Learning Curve

  • Rapidly expand product knowledge, abilities, and job specific toolkit (Pro-E; hydraulics; magnetics; software – testing and engineering applications) to apply to product design and program launch.


Provide Exemplary Customer Service & Communication

  • Design engineer will work closely with customer during program launch to execute requests, respond to questions and build collaboration across teams (both internal and external) as necessary.
  • Customers should never receive unexpected major design changes.


Desirable skills, knowledge and Qualifications 

  • Able to operate independently in a fast paced and dynamic environment
  • A successful Design Engineer is hands-on and has a strong technical background along with experience within a Design for Manufacture environment.  These skills, combined with flexibility, a problem-solving orientation, solid communication skills and attention to detail, enable successful program implementation.
  • Strong team player and contributor
  • Able to work well with colleagues and produce results within a fast-paced, high pressure and dynamic atmosphere
  • Combines strong attention to detail and technical background
  • Able to take direction from multiple engineers, effectively managing priorities and communication
  • Working knowledge of manufacturing methods and processes
  • Strong oral, written and listening communication skills
  • Ability to work independently
  • Ability to interact with people at all levels of responsibility
  • This individual will go the extra mile with his/her team to meet and exceed customer expectations
  • To have the flexibility of their own work and put a personal ‘stamp’ on their output
  • Continuously expand and develop their professional talent, skills, and knowledge
  • Bachelor Degree in Engineering, preferred emphasis in Mechanical or related Engineering discipline. (required)
  • Ability and willingness to travel internationally
  • 3D CAD experience
