Description of Role and Responsibilities
Every Zahner project is different and thus requires a custom production process. Such processes must be quickly developed and deployed to satisfy project specific requirements and design aspirations. Zahner R&D utilizes a mix of technologies and techniques (supporting and/or augmenting our in house metalworking expertise) to meet client design intent and expand what is possible to build.
R&D Engineers are responsible for supporting research projects and initiatives including process development(70%). Knowledge of architectural project delivery is helpful but not required. In addition, this position will be involved in ongoing Zahner Labs product support in the areas of design, concept refinement, modeling, fabrication, and problem solving (30%). In this role you’ll work with the larger team to take projects from concept all the way to production!
Ever built your own 3d printer or custom machine? Worked on a pavilion project or a complex assembly? Did you work in your school’s workshop or fabrication lab? Or, were you a teaching assistant for a course focused on design for manufacturing? – if so, we want to talk to you!
