Engineer, Mechanical Engineering | Cisco Job | Bangalore, KA

Job description:

Cisco is hiring for the post of Mechanical Product Engineer.

As the Mechanical Product Engineer you will provide new product and ongoing engineering (including DFM/DFA) for a specific product or group of products from pre-concept commit through EOL. For new products, you will collaborate with Design Engineering (mechanical and hardware), process, test and reliability engineering to tackle problems and ensure cost avoidance and quality at FCS. For sustaining products, you will focus on cost reduction and design related yield improvements.

Job duties and responsibilities:

  • Perform New Product Engineering / Product sustaining engineering
  • Design for Manufacturing
  • Value engineering – Engage early with Component Engineering, GSM and Hardware engineering and influence on component selection, process efficiency, and design changes
  • BOM structuring and BOM risk Management.
  • Design tools proficiency (ProE, Adobe Illustrator, DFMPro)
  • Assessing CM and supply chain technical capability gaps
  • Crafting, analyzing, and releasing product documentation
  • Cost avoidance (pre-A0) and sustaining cost reduction
  • Technical lifecycle management (defect reduction team participation, new component qualification, etc)
  • Mfg. (Process) review

About the team and work:

You’ll be working very closely with HW Engineering, the Product Ops team, GSM, Mfg Ops and CM/EMS partners. In collaboration, you will influence on component selection, process efficiency, and design changes.
