We are looking to add a driven Product Development Lead with experience in delivering new mechatronics products to market to our Product Development team in Vancouver, BC. Reporting to the Vice President, Engineering, you will lead the agile development of product development engineering activities needed to drive our systems from pre-prototype to successful commercial operation.  An ideal candidate will have experience in all phases of mechatronic products/systems and the ability to apply product/system engineering disciplines to each phase of the product life cycle.

We are a fast-moving agile team that makes product improvements frequently to deliver on our commitments to our customers, as well as deliver research-concept to new products at an accelerated pace.

Job Responsibilities:

    • System expectations and requirements.
    • System architecture with definition of system interfaces and relevant subsystems within the Product Development (detailed), Data, Field Services and Manufacturing and Supply Chain Teams (high level milestones/handovers).
  • Tied to new products/product revisions, develop the product development engineering plan/vision including interfaces, research and development activities, prototype development and manufacturing, testing and quality metrics, bill of materials development, establishment of component and system mean time to failure, and handover activities.
  • Create and maintain issues and risk logs for the product in its development lifecycle.
  • Find new opportunities between products, identify recovery approaches, and support the products as they progress through development, verification, and validation while ensuring design integrity and adherence with requirements.
  • Work with our team to creatively resolve issues and remove roadblocks to the impossible.
  • Work with customers to gain acceptance of our products and to capture changes in requirements. This communication may lead to patentable inventions concepts as well.
  • Additional duties as occasionally required by your manager.


  • A Bachelor’s degree in mechanical, electrical, or mechatronic engineering with emphasis on systems engineering.
  • At least 5-10 years of experience working as a Product/Systems Engineer on a complex system with previous engineering experience working in a product development environment.
  • Proven visionary experience developing products, identifying opportunities to speed up development time, synergies between products/uses and create new processes for first to market products.
  • Previous experience working in a scale-up organization setting up systems and processes would be beneficial.
  • Ability to make timely technical recommendations and decisions after consultation with stakeholders (including customers).
  • Strong relationship builder with excellent communication skills (written and oral). 
  • Experience working with multi-disciplinary teams including product development, production/manufacturing, product optimization and procurement.
